The Pacers appear to be in good shape this season, however, I think they need another "rim protector". Here is why.
What happens if Hibbert gets injured? I don't see Mahamini playing 30+ mpg for any length of time and being effective. West and Scola are good players but they aren't going to block or alter many shots. Having another 6'11" or bigger shot blocker on the bench would help. Someone like a Fesenko that would be kind of an insurance policy. Should Hibbert get injured, Fesenko (or whoever) could give us 10-12 mpg and block or alter shots. That means if we could get 20-25 mpg from Mahamini, we would basically have 30-35 mpg with someone in the game to block or alter shots.
That's just my opinion. I would interested to see what other people think.
