Anyone who thinks Hibbert is a draft bargain doesn't watch college basketball. The guy is a stiff and didn't improve at all this year, which is why his draft stock has fallen so far.

Gotta agree with you ABC, he really did not improve all that much since from his Soph. year. He is too slow and doesn't really have much of a game on offense.

Again, Connor coming in with nonsense dribble and showing tar for sense. Forget Randolph, Connor should have received the pink slip!

Desmond Connor is right on.

Roy Hibbert is a huge sleeper in the draft. He outplayed both Hansborough and Oden in the elite 8 and final 4 two years ago. He is a terrific post passer and his endurance has come along way. If Brook Lopez (who is predicted top 5) has a better career than Hibbert, I'll by all of you dinner twice over.

The point is not whether he went as a #12 pick last year or a #23 pick this year. The point should be that there are many different ways to live a life. Hibbert decided to finish his college degree before starting a career...that is really not a revolutionary idea.

Hibbert will still make more money in his first month of being as professional basketball player, then I will in my first 10 years after earning my degree.

Hibbert made a decision to earn a college degree. In many circles that will have a fair amount of value later in life.
