Roy Hibbert dropped 16 pounds from 283 to 267. hmm, if we can get the defense and rim protection that he gave the Pacers 2 years ago, we might be set at C for next few years. Remember, Hibbert is only 28.

On offense, he has some range and shoots FT % in high-70s. He was mostly known for his defense, hustle, and rim protection.

Kobe has been know to be an astute student of the game so Im interested if he is receptive enough.
Riley revealed in his book how he showed videos to Kareem about him not hustling enough etc. KAJ was partly defensive but acknowledge most of it's merits.

He can still defend 1 on 1 at a high level in short spurts, but not consistently anymore. His main problem is off ball and defending in the pick and roll. That comes down to effort mostly. But that could be because he simply doesn't have the energy he used to to hound guys nonstop like in 2000.
