The Indiana Pacers have been in a state of flux for quite a while now. Once thought to be able to unseat the Miami Heat, something doesn’t seem right with this team despite still being #1 in the East.
If you ask Roy Hibbert, a lot has to do with selfishness. Hibbert poses a mismatch most nights because of his size, but he’s not getting enought touches according to him.
Whatever the issue is, they only have a few weeks to figure it out.
“Some selfish dudes in here,” Roy Hibbert muttered Friday night, after getting eight shots in the Pacers’ loss to the Wizards. “Some selfish dudes. I’m tired of talking about it. We’ve been talking about it for a month.”
“We play hard, but we’ve got to move the ball,” Hibbert said. “Is it obvious, or what? I don’t know whatever our assist ratio, or whatever it is, is in the league, but it probably isn’t up there. I’m really trying hard not to spaz out right now, but I don’t know. We’ve been talking about it for a month. I’m not handling the rock. I don’t know. I’ve made suggestions before and we do it for, like, one game, and then we revert back to what we are. I don’t know. I’m not the one to answer that question. It directly affects me and the bigs. We’re just out there and it makes us look bad.”
