Roy Hibbert - Earning His Contract
Larry Bird gave Roy Hibbert an assumed $58 million over 4 years in the off season, then the 2013 season started and his offense noticeably declined (although his defense remained stellar, alone it wasn't worth max money)
Like several other big men I've mentioned he has seemed to get it together in March. putting up 17.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks while shooting 50.8% compared to 11.6 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocks on 44.2% shooting for the whole year.
Hibbert is a big part of the reason why the Pacers are 2nd in the East and if he can maintain his offensive output he'll give the Heat moment for pause come playoffs.
He's been incredible these past few games, particularly in the first quarter. I was hesitant when Roy called out the entire team after their loss to the Bulls, but he's really backed it up with his play. He's looking really confident with his shot, which has been his problem all year. The skill has been there all along.
His wrist is healthier. His game is coming together at the right time, which is perfect because the Pacers will need him to be on his A+ game in the playoffs. When Hibbert and West dominate, the Pacers can beat anybody.
