We'll see what he does when he isn't Joel Emiid'ing it by playing a team of 6'8" guys.
Yeah, not like he led the entire association in rebounding huh? Only against GS huh?
Enjoy the Clipper offseason......
DJ 2nd round
31 minutes - 7 ppg, 10 rpg, 1.5 bpg, 21% FT.........What did he actually do this series?
Hibbert 2nd round
30 minutes - 12 ppg, 5 rpg, 2.2 bpg, 78% FT.............Game 2 and Game 4 huge plays and a big reason IND in ECF
But did you see his dunks though?
Fair enough. I would still take DJ over Hibbert heading into next season. He has more upside. You can't teach his off the chart athleticism for a guy 6'11" and 265 lbs. He definitely needs to improve on many aspects of his game. Start with FT shooting. It's pathetic and there is no excuse. He should try to develop a post move or two. I don't expect him to be a go to guy down low but just develop a move or two for situations where he has good, deep position on his defender. But right now, he's one of the best rebounders, rim protectors and active defenders in the league.
But I will admit that I would take Hibbert over DJ if the Hibbert from the Miami series in last year's playoff shows up consistently. But that's just not the normal Hibbert. That is above and beyond normal Hibbert. The normal Hibbert is probably what we saw in the second round. A decent big who has serious limitations in terms of athleticism.
