Good stuff from Beckley Mason of HoopSpeak on Roy Hibbert’s rebounding against Miami.
Here is one of his thoughts.
Coaches should show this video of Hibbert to young bigs as an example of what happens when you follow your shot. When Heat players challenge Hibbert’s shot, they often leap to contest the shot then turn to see where the ball went, but by the time Hibbert has let the ball go, he’s back on the ground and bulldozing his way to the rim, looking for a put-back. For most people, not jumping very high isn’t a good basketball strategy, but it seems to work out pretty well for Hibbert. His single-mindedness is amazing, and the Heat big men have not been able to match it defensively.
The Team Rebound also broke down how Hibbert dominated the glass in Game 4 for 8p9s.
