Which Roy Hibbert Shows Up?

After a damn-near disappearing act during the tail end of the NBA season and through the first round of the NBA playoffs, Roy Hibbert finally came alive during several games of the Pacers’ 4-2 series win over the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Pacers don’t stand a chance against the Heat if the 7-foot-2 big man doesn’t play to his All-Star status. Remember, Hibbert was a huge reason why Indiana was able to push the Heat to seven games in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, as he patrolled the paint and averaged 22 points, 10 rebounds and one block per game. Anything less, especially against the Heat, whose weakness has perennially been inside, isn’t going to cut it. (Photo: Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)
