    Default Another Trade Roy Hibbert Thread

    No, this isn't an overreaction thread after the loss to Toronto in overtime.

    This guy is stealing money LITERALLY and is most likely the worst offensive center in the league.

    The Pacers have to find someway to get off this contract ASAP, might be one of the worst contracts in the league as we speak.

    9.9 PPG and 8.3 REB per game on 41.5% shooting is HORRENDOUS.

    Max contract???

    Unbelievable.

    No, this isn't an overreaction at all.

    I know I'm knee jerking, but I've been pretty disappointed in Hibbert's play lately (this season) and to be honest, I wouldn't mid too much right now if he were traded.

    Watching Hibbert fall to the floor after every contact and mess up his teammate's amazing passes by missing bunnies makes me wanna crack my head open. I'm really hoping that the return of Granger can help get Hibbert going.

    You can't average double figures and be the worst offensive anything.

    As disappointing as he's been, he's only avg 3 points less than last year.

    If you're looking for big offensive stats, you're unrealistic. He's a key to our defense and rebounding being tops in the league.

    If we trades him, I wouldn't be too heartbroken, but I bet area 55 would.

    Also, where was this after last game where he dominated? Lol

    Give me a break, he is the anchor to the best defense in the league. He blocked 5 shots and challenged/deterred many more than that... Stats can't paint the whole picture when it comes to a guy that does so much for our defense (or if you do want a stat, he's near the top of the league in defensive win shares).

    Nights like this when the Raptors are taking allot of jump shots when he is in there (b/c he's preventing drives) the defensive rebounds are going to be long... hmm wonder why PG had 14 rebounds.......

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    You typed three sentences there. The first sentence makes the second two incredibly hypocritical. Also, he was right.

    As for the OT--no. Roy's offense has been brutal this year, but defensively he is the anchor for this team. You know, the best defensive team in the NBA? Roy is a huge part of this team's success. I have zero desire to trade him, struggling or not.

    Firstly, stop being so thin skinned, people disagree sometimes on the internet. Anyway, Roy's been dreadful on offense. That's clear to anyone, spectacles or not (even though only English majors wear glasses, obviously). It's past the point of a slump, he's just bad offensively, for whatever reason. He's also a fringe DPOY candidate. I love West, and he's playing the best defense of his life this year, but it's still not any better than average. But he puts up points so he's awesome and Roy sucks.

    I also wish people'd put some context to "max contract." His "max contract" isn't the same as Joe Johnson, or Amare Stoudemire, or Deron Williams, or Elton Brand. I'd easily take Roy over all those players, and his contract's smaller.

    I can completely understand why people are frustrated with Hibbert. His 41 or 42% field-goal percentage is downright awful for a guy with his type of game.

    Having said this, for me personally he gets a mini-pass because of what he's already proven. Let's not forget he was an All-Star last year. Offensively, maybe this is simply a classic "down year". Just like David West's season last year, coming off injury.

    Also, someone put it well earlier in this thread... he anchors our great defense. If there was a way to measure the value of combined defense among 3 players, then the trio of Hibbert, West, and Paul George would be off-the-charts good. I'm talking A++ stuff. Hibbert DOES change the game. Even when he's not blocking shots, he's altering things. If it was just West inside, maybe teams would be more aggressive. But West AND Hibbert AND George? Not a chance.

    He does need to improve offensively, though.

    I think it's also worth pointing out that Hibbert has the "big oaf" factor going on. When he does something clumsy or awkward, it makes him appear foolish and unvaluable to the eye.

    I've been waiting for this thread since the day we announced signing him to the max... Congratulations! You're the winner!

    Clearly you think inside the box...

    First... People in general put too much emphasis on players salaries when determining their worth to a team... I understand it... But I think people go overboard with it... The agents and GMs determine salaries... Why blame a player and want him gone namely because they make a **** ton of money? Especially when you consider everything the player brings to your franchise...

    Second... As has been stated and evidenced... Good big men DO NOT COME CHEAP... Notice I said good... Not great...

    Third... I don't know what more you expect from a player making 13 million in the NBA... Superstars that dominate on both sides of the ball should fall between 15-20 mil IMO... Players who dominate one side of the ball should make between 10-15 mil IMO... And Roy Hibbert dominates on defense... He anchors one of the best defenses in recent history! He changes the game when he is on the floor... That is absolutely a mini-max player... Dwight Howard makes about 6 mil more per year than Roy... And he is currently anchoring one of the most disappointing defenses in recent history...

    Fourth - Roy brings so much good PR to this team... I don't even need to explain this point... If you are a Pacers fan then you should already understand this massive chunk of what Roy Hibbert's 13 mil brings to this team...
    Nothing in life worth having comes easy.

    Let's look at some big man salaries for this year.

    Dwight Howard 19.2
    Pau Gasol 19.0
    Chris Bosh 17.5
    Marc Gasol 13.9
    Brook Lopez 13.7
    Roy Hibbert 13.7
    Tyson Chandler 13.6
    Emeka Okafor 13.5
    Andrew Bogut 13.1
    Nene Hilario 13.0

    He looks just about right to me. Big men get paid. Face it.

    There is a reason he got 3 rebounds tonight, cause a rookie (for the most part) was abusing him and he done nothing to fight back. Of course if he did, I'm sure the refs would've had something to say about it, so It's a moot point really.

    Hibbert needs to get more aggressive, but I'm ok with his play right now, overall. He is to big to be out there playing out of his mind cause he will just end up hurting himself. He just needs to know he has to step it up come playoffs and I think he will. JMO

    He got 3 rebounds because he was contesting every shot, so he wasn't in position.

    He was contesting all those jump shots? Hmm, we must have been watching different games or something.

    He's fine. The offense will come. He's coming off an injury. And he's a big reason why we have the best D in the league. Give it time.
