I love big roy. I think he has become a defensive stud. something I was begging for last season early on when he was in his slump. if big roy foreva focus's on defense and shutting down fools in the lane the guy is going to be the best center to ever play for the Indiana pacers.
what I am wondering is how Big Roy is not more dominant offensively. now I know we got several weapons, and Big Roy is not looking to hog the stats,, he cares about winning. we PG, DW, lance, hill, scola,, so its not like we need 20 nite in and nite out.
so early in roys career he would get an offensive board and not be strong with it.
I guess I just don't understand how Roy is not a consistient 20 pt scorer while offering strong defense and rim protection. centers often come into their own lil slower than other positions but Roy is reaching that point where his offensive game needs to improve because he has the talent.
I don't expect Big Roy to be the second coming of Patrick Ewing. I guess maybe what im asking is what do you believe Big Roy can do to become a greater offensive player. the guy has a great touch.
for me,, I would love to see the following from Big Roy.
1) sometimes I feel like he gets to fancy. it seems like Roy could score 20 a nite just simply posting up on the right block and hook shotting alas Kareem with the right hook time and time and time again.
I don't mind the left hand hook but I just think Roy settles. he should just overpower players and that right hook is unblockable.
pump fake. pump fake. pump fake. so often Roy.. and ive griped about this before and will again,, don't get why he doesn't get a power base more often. I love Hibbs but at times he seems awkward with his footwork. his size I would love to see a power dribble .. power base.. and just hook em to death or pump fake and power dunk that ****
All im saying is.. Big Roy has the talent. his footwork still needs improvement but has made huge strides. and that hook shot.. as Shaq says.. he just hook em to death big fella. for example tonite.. a play on KG he spun and faced up on KG. he could just back KG's old a** down and hook right over him on right block any day of the week and twice on sunday.
just seems like Roy makes it more difficult than need be. with his size he should have the kareem shot down to a science.
with that said.
BIG ROY Defensive Player of the Year.
