Posted by Pacers Boy On June - 22 - 2009

Chris Denari was on the WTHR 13 Sports Center show tonight sharing thoughts about the NBA draft, but had some interesting news about current Pacers players. It was very encouraging news about our young players working out during the off season, so let’s get to a few of his quotes:

New Roy Hibbert Interview

Posted by Pacers Boy On October - 23 - 2008

There is a pretty good interview with Roy Hibbert from WNDE 1260 AM that was just posted to the interwebs. The biggest impression: Roy is a good speaker and great character. Every time he received a compliment from JMV, he politely responded that he has a lot of work to do, needs to work with the good Pacers coaches he has available, and it’s going to take some time to blossom. Based on the excitement from fans during the preseason, it’s scary to think what Roy could blossom into . . . scary in a good way.

Roy admitted there were some first game jitters, and even some jitters during the first couple games, but again he thinks he has a lot of work to do to get to where he wants to be in the NBA. Listening to Hibbert’s answers to the questions left me thinking, do responses get any better than this? Hibbert also mentioned that he is getting acclimated with his teammates, they talk to him every day and it sounds like they usually eat lunch together. Roy did mention that although he wouldn’t name any names, the rookie is getting “newspapers and stuff and everything” for certain Indiana Pacers players.

Roy was also asked about Patrick Ewing, and said that besides the sweet baseline fade (JMV’s words, not Roy’s), Ewing also taught him about how hard you need to work every day in the NBA. It really seems like Roy Hibbert is trying to make as good of a first impression as possible in his rookie year - another smart move from the new “claw” of the Pacers. (Is that his new nickname? . . .  hard to keep all of Big Roy’s nicknames straight.)
