Roy Denzil Hibbert (born December 11, 1986) is a Jamaican American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Indiana Pacers of the NBA. He plays the center position, and graduated from Georgetown University in 2008. He was drafted 17th overall in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Toronto Raptors and was immediately traded to the Pacers on draft night. He also holds Jamaican citizenship and therefore he has represented the Jamaican national team in international competition.

Roy Hibbert was born in Queens, New York to Roy, Sr. and Patty Hibbert. The family moved to Adelphi, Maryland when Roy was 2. Around that time, the New York Post states that his parents introduced him to basketball after they had "tried to get him to play tennis, then golf, then the piano."

Hibbert attended Georgetown Prep in North Bethesda, Maryland. The team was coached by Dwayne Bryant, who had attended Georgetown University as a varsity basketball player. Bryant introduced the still-awkward Hibbert to the GU campus. Hibbert helped make Georgetown Prep's Little Hoyas co-champions of the Interstate Athletic Conference in 2004. Since Roy is an avid Pokémon fan, his teammates would often say, "Power up, big fella," to help him play harder.
