NBA Role: defensive-minded center • Salty DOG

Roy Hibbert, a 2x All-Star (yes haters, twice) center, is looking to return to form in Denver; a plodding pivot perfectly fit for a slow-it-down system, Roy is now transitioning to a role as pseudo-starter/high quality backup; made his early imprint on defense: popularized the verticality rule while in Indiana, though Hibbert does not protect the rim at such a super high rate these days; short dose scorer: can knock down midrange Js, hooks with either hand & score via deep paint catches…but not for an extended time frame; motivation and endurance have plagued big Roy since his Georgetown days; miscast as a star a few years back, Hibbert is simply a solid center who makes a difference when surrounded by a strong supporting cast
