Roy Hibbert says he’s targeting Defensive Player of the Year, predicts Paul George as MVP


We didn’t formally reach out to Roy Hibbert to get his predictions for the 2013-14 season, but thanks to the availability of social media he was able to turn in his picks.

After the Pacers pulled away in the fourth to beat the Bulls on Wednesday and improv to a perfect 5-0 on the season, Hibbert let it be known that he’s after one regular season award, and believes one of his teammates is in line for another.

Hibbert was obviously feeling pretty good about himself after grabbing 10 rebounds and blocking five shots against Chicago, while helping to hold Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah to just 10 points combined on 3-of-12 shooting.
