West’s decision to leave in pursuit of immediate gratification in what could be the final season of his career amplified everything. As team president Larry Bird said, West’s surprising move brought about several other changes, as it cost the team its starting power forward and on-court leader. At that point there was no point in trying to maintain the core of the teams that reached the conference finals in consecutive seasons. The mutual desire for Hibbert to move on was another major factor, opening a major hole at center that had been filled for seven seasons. Stuckey, Allen and Whittington were re-signed, but the upcoming roster still includes eight new players: Chase Budinger, Toney Douglas, Monta Ellis, Jordan Hill, Glenn Robinson III and rookies Myles Turner, Joe Young and Rakeem Christmas.
He spoke with Shane Young of HoopsHabit and discussed his time with the Lakers. When asked about how it was like playing with Kobe Bryant, Hill mentioned Bryant’s floor presence, his constant yelling, and how not everyone is suited for it: When he’s on the floor, all you hear is Kobe’s mouth. On the floor, all you hear is Kobe’s mouth. During practice, it gets loud. A lot of people can’t handle that I guess.
