2016 Player Capsule: Roy Hibbert
By the Numbers
1: Times the Lakers played without Roy Hibbert in the starting lineup.
4.6: Hibbert's block percentage, which ranked ninth in the NBA.
269: Personal fouls committed by Hibbert, which were the league's third-most.
Hibbert was brought on board this season primarily to anchor the defense, which — due also to poor help from the perimeter and the prevalence of opposing small-ball offenses — he was unable to do effectively, as the Lakers allowed 106.9 points per game — the league's fourth-highest mark. Though Hibbert's defense wasn't at the level of his two All-Star seasons in 2012 and 2014, he did lead the team with 1.4 blocks. While he didn't seek much offensive production, calling it "candy," the 7-foot-2 veteran was largely absent on that end, providing a career-low 5.9 points. He also wasn't too active on the rebounding front, tallying only three double-doubles all year.
In His Own Words
"It was a rough one, but I'm realistic about how my year was and the team's year was. ... I'm gonna try to figure out a way to fit in (with the current NBA style) as much as possible."
