Roy Hibbert has had plenty of struggles this season.credit: blogimages.thescore.com Since earning a massive contract with the Indiana Pacers in the offseason, Roy Hibbert has had his fair share of troubles on the court. He is averaging a pedestrian 10 points and 9 rebounds per game, while his Player Efficiency Rating(PER) is still under 15, considered the league average. He’s shooting 38% from the field; not quite what you want out of a player earning nearly $14 million this season. Hibbert proved his worth last postseason against the Miami Heat, where he proved to be a matchup nightmare. In a league that is leaning toward small lineups, a 7’2″ center with a post game can be deadly. Despite his struggles, Roy Hibbert is still aiming high. Maybe a bit too high. Via Yahoo: “People said I wouldn’t be in the NBA,” said Hibbert, the highest-paid Pacer at $13.8 million this season. “People said I wouldn’t be a starting center, this, that and the other. I just prove people wrong. I’m having a slump right now, but in the grand scheme of things I’m going to turn it around and hopefully be the best when it’s all said and done.” Hibbert aims to top Dwight Howard as the widely accepted best center in the NBA. A fake Hibbert Instagram account took a shot at Howard recently and gained some traction on the Internet before it was debunked – “I’m the best center in the league #[expletive]Dwight” it read. “That wasn’t me, but I will be the best center in the league one day,” Hibbert said. This is big talk, particularly from a player who is struggling the way Hibbert is. For the money he’s making, he should probably work his way into the conversation, right? -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Roy Hibbert: “I will be the best center in the league one day” appeared first on Pass The Pill.

Roy Hibbert‘s quest to become the best center in the NBA is not going so well. The 7-foot-2 Indiana Pacers big man may be coming off a career season, but on Sunday against the Oklahoma City Thunder he posted another disappointing stat line with 10 points and six rebounds.

Point Guard blocks a 7-Footer

Pacers disappoint against Nuggets

The Indiana Pacers appeared to have momentum heading into their showdown with the Denver Nuggets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so it's disappointing to see them crumple down the stretch and hand the Nuggets a 92-89 victory. I had hoped for JaVale McGee to score some baskets for the Pacers but instead he dominated Roy Hibbert, who was kept to 10 and 9 on 3-10 shooting (though...
