Roy Hibbert Learning Hook Shot from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

#royhibbert55 great practice makes for lots of baskets

On Tuesday, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar posted on social media that he would help Roy Hibbert become a “serious threat to this competitors.”

Now we have video of it.

Thanks to Kareem’s Instagram, we can watch video of Roy practicing hook shots and Kareem rebounding for him. Hopefully these sessions will improve his shot making inside of nine feet. Post-All Star break, Hibbert shot 41% from the restricted area, which is well below league-average.

GM Kevin Pritchard and Donny Walsh were looking on the practice as well.

Since he likely isn’t being traded, the Pacers brain trust has all eyes on him making sure his skills are not stalling.
