Roy Hibbert is the worst All-Star ever to play in the NBA playoffs

To say that Indiana Pacers big man Roy Hibbert has struggled against the Atlanta Hawks this postseason would be an understatement.

He has averaged just 4.8 points over the first five games of the round one series and has looked lost at times out on the court.

And now one graphic has revealed that he is in fact having an historically poor NBA playoffs.

The table shows that, in comparison to every other NBA player who has played in the postseason having made the All-Star roster the same season, no one has ever performed as badly as poor old Roy Hibbert in NBA playoff history...

And it's not even close.

The graphic, supplied by ESPN Stats and Info, shows that his player efficiency rating in the 2014 playoffs is currently at a staggering 0.8

The three previous worst are, in descending order, Tyrone Hill (5.9 in 1995), Jeff Malone (5.8 in 1987), and in Larry Costello (5.3 in 1965).

To make the list a player must have played at least 100 minutes in the postseason, and unless Roy Hibbert and the Indiana Pacers can rediscover their early regular-season form double-quick then the 2014 All-Star will not be getting many more.

Perhaps unsurprisingly he 7' 2" player is likely to be benched by the Pacers ahead of Game Six.
