Three Areas of the Game That Roy Hibbert Affects the Most
Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Big men come and go in the NBA. Some are more successful than others (Shaquille O'Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar), while others have struggled to play at the professional level due to outside factors like injuries (Sam Bowie, Greg Oden).

Roy Hibbert is one of a few big men in the NBA whose career took a very different path from the aforementioned players. He was never considered the dominant center in the league and he probably still isn't, but he uses of his 7'2", 280-pound body to his advantage.

In every year he's been in the league, he has improved steadily. Although he faced his struggles on offense during the beginning of this season, he has bounced back admirably and is now the most important player on a title-contending Indiana Pacers squad.

This slideshow will analyze three areas of the game that Hibbert greatly affects due to his sheer size and ability to play close to the rim.
