Roy Hibbert to Train With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said he will work with Roy Hibbert this summer to improve his game.

From Kareem’s Instagram.

Pacer fans get ready for next season. I’m helping to get Roy ready to become a serious threat to his competitors.

This is a great hookup between the two. Hibbert was incompetent getting post position and shooting around the rim. Kareem — arguably the best scorer and certainly the best offensive post player in NBA history — can help surely teach Hibbert a few new tricks.

Check Hibbert’s shot-chart from last season after the All-Star Game.

Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, with 38,387 points, and became the first NBA player to play for 20 seasons.

Other notable career statistics: 17,440 rebounds, 3,189 blocks and 1,560 games. He also broke records for having scored the most points, blocked the most shots and won the most MVPs in 1989.

He’s one of greatest players to ever put on an NBA jersey.

Having dinner w/ RoyHibbert55 & Larry Bird @ Ruth Chris Steakhouse in Indianapolis

Larry Bird was also there. It must be fun having dinner with two NBA legends.

Any type of assistance at this point for Hibbert is a positive. It is assuring that it’s coming from Larry Bird and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
