Roy Hibbert Reached Out To Tim Duncan For Advice
The San Antonio Spurs put on an offensive clinic in the NBA Finals this past June. As the trend goes, teams are now looking to mimic the champion Spurs’ formula, which is generalized as ball/player movement, unselfish, high-IQ basketball, spacing, shooting, and discipline.
Pacers center Roy Hibbert reached out to Tim Duncan for some insight on the formula, per Candace Buckner of the Indy Star:

The Pacers aren’t particularly primed for a breakout season with Paul George out and Lance Stephenson off to Charlotte. Hibbert should have enough personal goals to pursue in hopes of a redeeming individual season, and it will be hard enough for Indiana to realistically liken the Spurs’ model of effectiveness and efficiency now without their two most talented players.
But even with them, that would be a tall order.
