Hibbert Putting too Much Pressure on Himself
At the same time, Roy Hibbert is guarding against his own tendency to put too much pressure on himself.
“I’ve been one to over think some things, and I’ve been one to get down on myself to the point of depression before, but I’m not like that now,” says Hibbert. “I know, as a player, that I’m going to have my ups and downs. You always, at some point, have bad stretches during the season. It’s unfortunate that I’m in one right now, but hopefully I can get out of it and help my team win.”
Still, one thing that isn’t easily replaced is great chemistry, which Collison says is one of the most precious commodities.
“It’s extremely important; chemistry is probably one of the biggest things in the NBA,” says Collison, who returns to Indiana to start against his former team and his best friend tonight. “It’s actually underrated in the NBA, but if you look at the teams that win, they have chemistry not only on the court but off the court.”
