I'm sure we were not joking either.

That way we can build his confidence and work on his game against scrubs instead of actual NBA players.

He should probably be an All Star reserve out East. He's been their best player.

What, you wanted him to play in front of Yao or Dikembe? We were contenders in 08.

Not me. I wished we had Chuck Hayes, a dleague graduate, back on our team to punk him everytime we play them.

If Houston drafted him, he would have fallen almost 10 more spots, isn't that motivation enough?

I don't remember them trying to trade up that high...

And we had deke and yao then, and Hibbert isn't a PF/C combo, so where did he expect to play?

He probably should have spent his first year in the D-League.

We liked Roy enough to stash him,as Yao was here....an heir apparent. What's wrong with that?

I loved Hibbert coming out and think he would have been much better under our tutelage.
