Please don't be fooled by the small ball that seems to be the style of the NBA now, tall guys are still the most important piece of an NBA team. Let's take a look at the best teams of the NBA right now. LA Lakers - Gasol, Celtics - Garnett, San Antonio - Duncan, Detroit - Wallace. Yes these teams have other components that are more flashy, but without a big man, they would be nothing. Where was Kobe without Gasol? Do you really think Tony Parker can carry a team without Duncan? Roy will go before #15 - guaranteed!

good post and you are probobly right- or should be - i dont see how anybody could place jordon or mcgee ahead of him- i still like brook lopez as a notch up from hibbert but you are right the 2nd best center surely should go top 20 maybe way earlier? -

i really like the thought of the suns taking hibbert at pick 15- he would get a great chance to develop behind shaq and keep amare at pf for the rest of his career- they may need help outside but i hope the suns ignor that and build for the future-

Last but not least on Roy Hibbert. He played with some of the worst point guards in the nation with regards to assist per game. Their point guard had less than 3 assist per game. Please explain to me how you have a 7'2" center, and you can't average more than 5 assist per game. Don't put the blame on Hibbert, he can't pass himself the ball. There is alot of talk about how he didn't improve from his Junior season. He improved, but his team didn't. He will be on the all rookie first team next year. Mark my words.

You are right about the point guards, but it was more to do with the Georgetown system than the players he played with.

I told you about Hibbert before, now here is some evidence. He is not going 23rd !!!


"Two players we haven’t heard great things about from their workouts so far as DeAndre Jordan and JaVale McGee. Both have reportedly been outplayed by lower rated prospects such as Alexis Ajinca (in Charlotte) and Roy Hibbert. Jordan has not impressed anyone by showing up for his job interview (what this is essentially) in a t-shirt and shorts while players such as Hibbert and Courtney Lee arrived prepared to get down to business in a suit and tie. Jordan, in the words of one scout "could drop right out of the lottery" if he isn't careful, based off the way he's been working out. Hibbert on the other hand has gotten some strong reviews from teams who have seen him so far, as he appears to be in excellent shape and is reminding people why he was considered a lock for the lottery just a year ago, running the floor well (better than his peers), finishing with either hand around the basket, and shooting the ball better than expected from outside. Not surprisingly, the 21-year old Georgetown product has been extremely impressive off the court as well—which is an underrated element in this process. "
