Miami had five shooters on the floor and the first priority is to make sure no one popped free on the inbounds play; I don't think it occurred to Vogel to leave Bosh wide open just so Hibbert could be camped in the lane in the unlikely event someone else whiffed his assignment.
I totally agree. George doesn't make a major gaffe then Hibbert on the floor or not on the floor doesn't really matter.
