Who said Roy Hibbert would be a bust?

Discussion for professional sporting events/teams and players.

This would be a great place to discuss the Super Bowl, the NBA Playoffs or whatever else.

Who said Roy Hibbert would be a bust?

Post by craigoscarson » Thu Oct 28, 2010 12:56 am

I remember several posters here thought Roy Hibbert was a huge bust in the making and a terrible consideration for the Jazz in the draft 2 years ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_NBA_Draft" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I had suggested that the Jazz package their 2nd round picks and a future 1st to move up and grab Hibbert and I was even mocked a bit for it. (One poster said that we had Fez and that there's no way Hibbert would make it in the league)

Hibbert followed up a very solid season last year with a great preseason and now 28. 9 and 3 against a very tough team to score inside against in the Spurs.

I can't imagine that Koufos will ever post a line like that... and then of course the Jazz package Koufos and 2 1st round picks for Jefferson (who is a serious upgrade but an expensive one considering Koufos also cost a 1st rounder) .

I like Al Jefferson as a player and I think he'll fit well in the Jazz system, but I can't imagine that having Hibbert and an extra 1st rounder to spend wouldn't have been better.

CC didnt' exist during that draft; it was on CB and if i remember Snos, you were one that hated Hibbert.

I think cougarblue has messed with their archives though; I cant' find much beyond 2009 there now.

It looks like the kid can ball.

Jazz could absolutely use him (I'd take him over Fesenko or Elson). Fes, a decent backup, will never dominate the NBA.
