Roy Hibbert Labeled A Beast



Dime recently sat down with former Hoya Roy Hibbert to discuss his transition from "Rookie to Beast."  Good stuff in the article including a nice quote from Roy about the big man tradition at Georgetown.

Dime: You come from a Georgetown program that has a great big man tradition. Who have you tried to pattern your game after?

RH: When I was at Georgetown, I wanted to be my own player. But I also wanted to have a little mix of Alonzo, Dikembe and Patrick. So I try to be a defensive presence like Dikembe, be physical like Alonzo and have post moves like Patrick. So I want to be a little bit of all of them.    

Nice to see that the Georgetown offense did not turn Hibbert into a robot (yes I am still bitter about Jeremiah).

Good talk.
