Should Pacers trade Roy Hibbert if title bid flops?

This is make or break time for Roy Hibbert. The $58 million man is at a crossroads with the Indiana Pacers, a point in his alternatively inspiring and disappointing career when he's going to prove or disprove his worth to this organization moving forward. The playoffs, which begin Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, are the ultimate litmus test...

Roy Hibbert: ‘I was wrong’ to call out Pacers teammates

Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert says it what was wrong for him to criticize his teammates in late March. “You know, I think that I should’ve kept my frustrations to myself or just in the locker room,” Hibbert said on “ESPN First Take.” “I will admit that it wasn’t the best thing to do. I’ll learn from that, and I was wrong. There are better ways to handle that...

Pacers beat Magic, finish season 56-26

The Indiana Pacers reserves plus a half of Roy Hibbert and George Hill, minus CJ Watson and Ian Mahinmi, were good enough to blow out the Orlando Magic tonight 101-86. Of course, Orlando had reason to tank as they wanted to lock up the 3rd best chance of securing the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA draft, but it’s always good for the Pacers to finish the regular season on a high...

Pacers to play Hibbert & Hill, rest other starters in season finale

No rest for the wicked Smart move, coach Vogel. With the first seed wrapped up, the Indiana Pacers don’t have much to play for in their final regular season contest in Orlando on Wednesday night. But with the team seemingly not in particularly good form heading into the playoffs, would it have been better to rest the starters again, as they did in Milwaukee last week, or play them...

Indiana Pacers: Don’t Count Them Out

The Indiana Pacers have struggled mightily as of late. The team has a dismal record of 9-13 in their last 22 games. Their disastrous recent play has forced many people to dismiss the Pacers and their chances of getting to the NBA Finals. However, a team having a lull after the All-Star break is not uncommon in the NBA. The defending champion Miami Heat went 5-8 during a 13 game stretch...

Oklahoma City Thunder Rookie Steven Adams Makes Pacers Roy Hibbert His Face Towel

Now if you are thinking that the title was some sort of clever analogy--thanks for thinking I'm capable but that wasn't the case. Adams actually did use Hibbert to wipe his face on during the game. Hibbert was more valuable to Adams than he was the Pacers. In 27 minutes the big man was 0-9 from the field with just six rebounds, a steal, and a block.@_MarcusD_/Twitter Loading...

Pacers need Hibbert to return to form

Sticking out like a sore thumb during the Pacers’ struggles over the last month or two is the play of big man Roy Hibbert, and it’s not just because he stands 7-foot-2. His inability to contribute — beyond protecting the rim, which has also dipped some — has played a part in the team’s slide. Since March 1, they are 10-13. The Pacers need their All-Star center to play...

Roy Hibbert Says Pacers Need to Rest Their Minds

It is very tiring to average 4.6 rebounds a game as Hibbert did in March (1.7 boards a game in April), so he believes it would be best for the Pacers to rest up. Here is what he had to say courtesy of “Getting our health right, resting our minds and our bodies is probably the best thing,” said Hibbert. “We had a lot of games last month so fatigue might have been...

After their sixth loss in eight contests and a train-wreck of a loss to the Atlanta Hawks that saw them trail 17-3 and 42-15, one would think it couldn’t get worse.  Yet with the way this team has played of late, there’s no telling. Regardless of how the team is feeling or how “fatigued” they are (or so head coach...
