Thread: Roy Hibbert - Our Max Player! 2012 thread!!

  1. #1

    Default Roy Hibbert - Our Max Player! 2012 thread!!

    8.6 ppg, 7.8 rebounds on 38% shooting!

    This is the player we wasted about 1/4 of our cap on! What a performance he showed in the playoffs against a dismantled Heat front court. What a talent......

    Now we're stuck with a 7" stiff who cant command the ball in the post and when he does, he is shooting under 40%.

    Guy continues to disappear in games and will be a liability to the team for the next half decade.

    Mediocrity all over again.

    Cavs laugh at the Pacers and hang up.


    Don't even think we could Roy Hibbert's contract away at the moment let alone trade for an up and coming superstar.

    I said back during that draft that we should have found a way to trade up for Cousins and that I would have taken him over Wall. Other than being a headcase, he's a monster.

    I'm very disappointed in Roy, and this is why I was pissed with him over the summer. He didn't earn or deserve a max deal and now he's proving it.

    I think about Austin Croshere and how he struggled with the pressure of a bigger contract. Given that, did anyone really think that Roy could handle the pressure of a max contract?

    I'll still make what looks like a crazy prediction now and say he'll have his best season by far.

    Well, some of us are kind of envious of these "problems". And, I suppose some of us older guys don't shoot very well either, if you get right down to it.

    At this point, Varejao > Hibbert and Irving >>> Hill. No way the Cavs even consider.

    Like I said on the other thread the Pacers should realize that they made a mistake and trade Roy for an expiring and some pieces, maybe Portland wants him again?

    Yes, a lot of guys (and girls) would be happy to be stuck with a 7" stiff.

    I like Hill though. Out of everyone on the team, he shows up and balls every night.

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    I never liked the consensus that we absolutely had to resign Roy, regardless of the cost. If a guy isn't worth the $$, you let him walk

    How quick does trade value vanish in this league? I'd trade him for anybody or nothing right now. I've never seen a max player get benched in the 4th, let alone watch one start crying on the bench. I can't root for that. I cannot root for a 7'2" man missing layups then crying because he gets benched.

    Listen a guy that protects the rim, blocks shots, rebounds and can efficiently score 13 ppg is absolutely worth the contract. All day every day. Roy is just not coming anywhere close to that production.

    Roy was producing on the level of Tyson Chandler. (Tyson is a better defender, but the way Roy was defending in the playoffs made him "close" to Tyson's level) He was absolutely worth the money. Consider his age and room for improvement? It wasn't a bad call. It's just one that somehow ended up as a disaster.

    I'm beginning to think that something else is going on with Hibbert.

    Good call by how Roy played vs ORL. Bad call by how ineffective Roy was vs Miami without Bosh
