Last week, former Patriots tight end Jermaine Wiggins, sitting in with Felger & Mazz on 98.5 The Sports Hub, took on ex-Celtic and current C's radio analyst Cedric Maxwell over Pacers center Roy Hibbert, who Wiggins thinks would be a great fit in Boston.
Now, for Round 2.
"Cedric in Cambridge" called in to Felger & Mazz after Hibbert went scoreless in Indiana's Game 4 loss to the Miami Heat. Hibbert bounced back with 10 points and 13 rebounds in the Pacers' Game 5 victory on Wednesday night.
Wiggins: "In the 2012-13 series against the Miami Heat, he averaged 22 points and 10 rebounds. How do you fall off the map like that? It's not like he's 38 [years old]."
Maxwell: "You made a great point when were talking about whether there was decline in Tom Brady's game. Maybe there is some decline in Roy Hibbert? I'm not convinced that a man at 7 foot 2 can't get a rebound for you."
Wiggins: "Roy Hibbert is 27 years old. He's arguably one of top three centers in league. You wouldn't want a player like him? ...When a guy is in a locker room he doesn't want to be in, sometimes he needs a change of scenery."
Maxwell: "I value your opninon about football, not basketball."
Wiggins: "1992 state [basketball] champs. East Boston High School. Go back and check my track record."
Maxwell: "MVP of the NBA Finals, 1981. My opinion on basketball might be a bit more than yours, Wiggy."
And finally, on Kevin Love, Maxwell said there is no way he'd give up four first-round picks to acquire him from the Timberwolves, again differeing with Wiggins, Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti. His list of players he'd give up four firsts for? 1) LeBron James. 2) Kevin Durant.
