Roy Hibbert calls Julius Randle not making the Rising Stars game 'a travesty'

Roy is known for defending on the court, but he defends his young teammates off of it too. Roy Hibbert has had a rough season on the court for the Los Angles Lakers, shooting just 44.5% from the field while posting the lowest points per game average (6.8) of his eight seasons in the NBA. Additionally, the Lakers have been better defensively with him off the floor, giving up an average of 112.2 points per 100 possessions with Hibbert on the court as opposed to "just" 104 when he is on the bench. Hibbert's struggles on the court during a contract year have not led to him shirking his...

Lakers Highlights: Roy Hibbert uses the best post move of his life to dunk against the Spurs

We haven't seen a whole lot of this from Roy this season. Roy Hibbert is having one of the worst season's of his career in his first year in Los Angeles, but you wouldn't know it by watching this clip, in which the seven-footer used one of the smoothest post moves of his life to score against the San Antonio Spurs: January 22nd, 2006- Kobe Bryant scores 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. January 22nd, 2016- Roy Hibbert does a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar impression against the Spurs. Which one was a more momentous moment in the history of the Lakers? It's really a judgement call, best left to...

What happened to Roy Hibbert?

The former two-time All-Star center looks like nothing more than a replacement-level player. What's responsible for his precipitous decline? Roy Hibbert looked like he was worth every penny of that max contract. As the "Godfather of Verticality", the former Georgetown Hoya (sidenote: what is that? I've been wondering my entire life) was the anchor of an Indiana Pacers defense that finished first in efficiency two seasons in a row (from 2012-2014). He absolutely dominated the interior behind excellent wing players like Paul George, Lance Stephenson and George Hill, serving as a 7'2"...

Lakers' Roy Hibbert goes about his business without fanfare or complaints

Roy Hibbert is the forgotten starter of the Lakers. There are no retirement tributes for him in city after city. He's not young enough to be analyzed and categorized as the future. He shows up for work, blocks some shots, and goes home. Reporters crowded around Kobe Bryant's locker after a recent...

Lakers Highlights: Roy Hibbert blocks Terrence Jones like he's a hater on Twitter

Emphatic denial by big Roy. There were rumors earlier Sunday that the Lakers were looking for a trade for struggling big man Roy Hibbert. If Hibbert heard those rumors, his block of Terrence Jones served as a counterargument. Either way, it was an emphatic rebuttal: Roy guarding the rim is always fun to see.

Lakers Trade Rumors: Lakers 'trying to find a playoff team' for Roy Hibbert

Would the Lakers make a big move involving their biggest player? Upon acquiring Roy Hibbert for just a single second round pick, there was talk from many around the Los Angeles Lakers of hope that the elite rim protector good regain some of his form after a down year with the Indiana Pacers. The Lakers front office envisioned Hibbert patching up holes in a formerly leaky Lakers defense, and dragging the team to respectability on that end of the floor. That has not come to pass. The Lakers are worse on both offense and defense with Hibbert on the floor, and the big man's playing time has...
