    Yea, it's kind of funny how Hibbert who i once thought was the face of the franchise along w/ Paul George is now just a nobody. How is that possible? Is he just a Linsanity thing where you have that one-time moment and then it's gone?

    Even last year when he was so dominant, i was wondering how is he able to dominate? He is so flat-footed the way he run up and down, isn't athletic and yet he dominate inside with his shots and defend.

    Or Mahinmi as a backup to Howard. That team has a lot of good players.

    Hard to imagine Roy Hibbert is now as useless as Andrew Bynum to the Pacers.

    How can a 7'2 dude not even get a rebound accidentally?

    What can I say?

    He's gone from the guy the defense was built upon, with everyone hedging their man to his help in the paint, altering 20 shots a game even if he just blocked 3, and even making Lebron not attack the rim but rather shoot floaters,

    to being a poor mans Hakeem Thabeet.

    He's had stretches in past seasons where he seem to loose it for weeks at a time, but never this low and never for this long.

    Paul George on the rumor:

    These rumors have got to stop! Its gettin old now and all you that believe them are ignorant! #Brothers http://t.co/381NcYY5Vo

    Hey, as long as you catch it, especially before what I was going to post. :grin:

    Anyway, sorry for the headaches this must be causing a Pacers fan. Seriously, it's one thing for us Rockets fans to know we had a shaky team heading into the playoffs, but you guys had to spend months thinking what is *with* these people? Who are they?

    And Hibbert is going through something that's like Rick Ankiel (the former pitcher) almost. Like maybe career defining.

    I feel for you man, I respected the Pacers, I like the style they are playing, and didn't expect them to get this bad. (I respect almost all players of them, I cannot stand Stephenson)

    I do have to say that there must be something really wrong between the players. And the explanation given would suffice.

    Rep point for you.

    Your username indicates allegiance for a certain team (yes, I should have been a detective; please don't respond by posting a picture of Inspector Clouseau :) ). I feel bad if this is the case. The Pacers were just tearing it up and then fell off a cliff.

    Don't know what's true and what's not, but something seriously cratered that team's cohesion, and trading for Evan Turner, while not yielding the results Bird wanted, can't explain such an epic collapse.

    So Paul George didn't say the rumors are not true.

    He said if you believe them then you're ignorant.

    That seems like a denial to me.

    If you repeat what rumor you are talking about while denying it, you just give the rumor more attention.

    Maybe you want him to say "No, I didn't bang any other player's wife girlfriend, sister, mom, or kitchen appliance, and nobody else on the team did either" but one train of thought it that to mention what it is that is ridiculous is sort of elevating it to the point of it being worth discussing.
