Also consider that Howard is only one year older than Hibbert, so I don't think there will be any huge developmental difference. Hibbert was great in the playoffs last year, but that was only a 20 game sample. Howard is a franchise cornerstone superstar while Hibbert is a very good role player.
Still want Hibbert. You're right, Howard is the more naturally talented of the two, but Hibbert is more of a team guy, and seems to have the desire to be always improving. It will be interesting to see what Howard does in Houston. I think the Pacers are building a special team.
