    I'm tired of people claiming we had to sign Hibbert to that ridiculous deal. Hibbert is worth 8-10M, not 13-15M per. We didn't HAVE to do anything and pretending we had to is a lazy answer to justify a bad choice. Overpaying someone by 5M a year is how you stay irrelevant to title talk.

    It'd be a waste of an asset and all the development and time that was put into Roy. I don't agree with the contract either, but there will be a time when Roy's value increases and at that point we can/should look into trades. At least that way we can say that our investment was a success.

    And just who would you sign to replace him? You do realize that you would have to over pay the same amount to anyone else? How does that make you competitive?

    I know I'm going to get killed for this one but I would love to see the Pacers go after Al Harrington; "bring back baby Al!"I read George Karl hated to lose him because he was such a good leader in the lockeroom. I know he has a huge contract and he still has about two or three years left on it, but he's a guy that can play the 3&4,which we need, and he is a guy that can knock down his open shots. He is also a veteran who's logged a lot of playoff minutes.
    He also can't or won't defend and he is WAY overpaid for what he is.....

    Roy's contract will never be easy to move. It only goes up from here and his plateau is 14 ppg 9 rpg the 3 remaining years totaling 45 mil is an albatross to the franchise. Perhaps in 3 years when its an expiring it will have value but until then the Pacers will pay a max contract to a slightly above league average , inconsistant center.

    Centers are ridiculously overpriced. It is what it is.

    Based on some of the data we're coming up with on another thread, a big part of our defensive prowess looks to be the fact that we're keeping people from getting off shots in the paint. In fact, our opponents shoot a disproportionally high % of shots from 16-23 feet out.

    Hibbert is a big, big part of that... so this must be taken into account when looking at his value.

    I read that Derek Fisher and Micheal Finley are looking to sign with a team. Fisher said he has offers from 3 teams. Think one of them could be the Pacers?

    Finley is probably looking at Stackhouse in Brooklyn and thinking, I can do that!

    No
    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?
