Hibbert is an absolute beast physically. At 7’2″ and 278 pounds, he was second in the league in defensive rating, and he’s gradually imporving.

Hibbert averaged 11.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in 2013. His greatest improvement this season came in his ability to shoot the ball. Though he finished around the rim more than he ever has, Hibbert is increasingly using a hook shot to score.

With a taste of success in the Eastern Conference Finals, expect Hibbert to keep improving and climbing up the ladder in the coming seasons.
