Do you mean he postured as a bopper? If so, I'd say about the opposite, he influenced the boppers and sounded like bop far more than he cared whether anyone thought he was a "bop" pianist (or any of his bands was a bop band).

He sounds a little like Bud Powell on the Yes Yes Club recordings of 1941. Hines was heavily influenced by stride piano, even if he broke up the patterns to some extent,.
