No A's in the starting five, unless you grade them as a collective whole.
Individually, Roy leads the way with a solid B. Still, Roy should know that a B won't get it done, as it won't get you into his alma mater Georgetown.
Why the relative average grade given Hibbert's career highs in points and rebounds? Because Hibbert is a 7'2'' monster that–after much improvement—is legitimately athletic, has good hands, a good feel for the game and a high basketball IQ.
With Hibbert's size, talent and smarts, he should be averaging closer to 20 points and 14 boards per game rather than 14 and 10.
How can Indiana beat Miami in the playoffs? The can if: every time LeBron James and Dwyane Wade drive, they have to shoot over a Hibbert's nine-foot wingspan; each possession, Chris Bosh has to leave David West and help Joel Anthony double down on Hibbert; and if the Pacers dominate the boards.
Not surprisingly, Hibbert is involved in the execution of all three.
