Indiana Pacers teammates call out Roy Hibbert for not producing in playoffs


The Indiana Pacers are down 1-0 tot he Washington Wizards and Roy Hibbert’s teammate have had just about enough of his disappearing act. We’ve seen Hibbert cameo on the Indiana-based Parks and Recreation, but apparently he’s skilled Houdini impersonator as well as he’s managed to escape any sort of talent in the first two rounds of the postseason and his teammates are starting to call him out.

 

 

Hibbert, to his credit, acknowledged that he’s been more of a problem in the postseason than part of the solution.

 

Still, while it’s cute that Hibbert knows he’s a detriment to the Pacers at the moment, that doesn’t change the fact that he’s been a ghost for them when they need him to be a brick wall on defense. His rebounding is terrible and the Pacers shooting is dying a slow death thanks to second chance buckets not coming.

It’s not surprising that the Wizards have looked so good, as even the lowly Hawks looked explosive against the Pacers and Hibbert’s lack of production for Indiana is something that needs to change but doesn’t look like it will.
