Lakers’ Roy Hibbert believes he will overcome early conditioning issues

first_imgBut despite finishing last in the conditioning drills that were open to reporters on Wednesday, Hibbert still argued he’s “doing all right.” After losing 15 pounds of fat and changing his diet this offseason, Hibbert maintained his investment will soon net some long-term gains. “I don’t want to finish last. So I’ll keep at it,” Hibbert said. “I knew what I was getting myself into when I came here. That’s why I prepared myself during the summer by running a lot more than I have in the past.”• VIDEO: Lakers writer Mark Medina recaps Day 3 of training camp in HawaiiScott has prided himself on running conditioning-heavy drills in training camp, believing the work usually reserved for track stars will help elevate his players’ endurance late in games. Scott also rarely hesitates to criticize a players’ performance or effort. Yet, Scott did not hold Hibbert’s stamina issues against him.“He works as hard as he can and does whatever he can to help out his teammates,” Scott said. “Defensively, he’s the captain back there navigating everybody and letting everybody know what needs to be done. These last three practices, I’ve been very happy with how he has helped younger guys.” HONOLULU >> The Lakers’ big men stood side by side on the baseline, waiting for coach Byron Scott to blow his whistle before laboring through another conditioning drill.Within seconds, Lakers center Roy Hibbert already was a few seconds behind everyone else. That routine lasted for several minutes at the end of the Lakers’ morning session on Wednesday at Stan Sheriff Center, leaving Hibbert hunching over to catch his breath once he finished. He then needed a few minutes to clear his mind before talking with Los Angeles News Group. “I haven’t done sprints like that since I was in college [at Georgetown],” the 28-year-old Hibbert said. “But most of the time when we ran, I was dead-last by a considerable amount.”Hibbert spent his seven-year NBA career with the Indiana Pacers before they traded him this past offseason to the Lakers. The Pacers made the move despite receiving only a second-round draft pick, eager to shed themselves of his expiring $15.5 million contract. But Indiana’s trade also reflected Hibbert’s struggle to adapt to the franchise’s shift toward fielding a quicker and smaller lineup. Still, Hibbert sounded aware something else could determine whether he can write his comeback story with the Lakers. All the numbers suggest that NBA teams should go small, the influx of speedy point guards and outside shooters forcing the game to put less of an emphasis on size and power. So Hibbert shed some pounds so he would no longer remain seen as a plodding center.““It’s changed some things up,” Hibbert said. “But I feel I’m in a place where I can hold my own in the post and get up and down the court.”Hibbert hopes to emulate Golden State’s Andrew Bogut. Hibbert argued Bogut’s contributions on the Warriors’ NBA title run became overshadowed by the outside shooting from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, as well as the defense from Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green. Yet, the 7-foot Bogut still landed on the NBA’s All-Defensive Second Team and finished sixth in Defensive Player of the Year votes despite averaging a career-low 23.6 minutes per game. “He didn’t score a lot, and he’s not the fastest guy out there. No disrespect to him,” Hibbert said of Bogut. “I admire his game and how he sacrifices what he does to help his team win a championship. I don’t mind being the older guy that has to sacrifice and be the defensive anchor.”Hibbert sure had to sacrifice in his last season with the Indiana Pacers after averaging only 10.6 points and 7.1 rebounds in 25.3 minutes. But the Lakers are leaning on Hibbert’s credentials as a former two-time All-Star and an All-NBA second defensive team member to revamp the Lakers after finishing 29th out of 30 NBA teams in defensive efficiency.“He knows his positioning and angles,” Lakers rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell said of Hibbert. “On defense, he protects the rim well and communicates his butt off. On the offensive end, he’s a threat. He can step out and make 10- or 8-foot jumpers. He’s a big body and really knows what he’s doing.”Hibbert said he also knows how to diet properly. He listened to the Lakers’ feedback in varying his eating times and nourishing his body with more protein. He did not listen to his inner voice.“Would I like to have a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting? Yeah, I would,” Hibbert said, laughing. “But this is part of my game.” So is running, a skill that leaves Hibbert wanting more even as he gasps for air. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
