View Full Version : George Hill not happy at all about the trade

Apparently George isn't too excited about coming back home...

http://blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/2011/06/23/mike-monroe-when-the-smoke-clears-parker-still-a-spur/


Hill wasn’t happy to be the player traded to get him, and his pal, DeJuan Blair, was downright angry.

Selected in back-to-back drafts by a team that was older than dirt, Hill and Blair quickly became best buddies.

They hung out together, did commercials for a local business and created their own nicknames, “Big and Smalls.” The joke, of course, was that Hill, the 6-foot-2 guard, was “Big.” Blair, all 6-7 and 270 pounds, was “Smalls.”

Their goal, said Blair, was to become the “faces of the franchise” once Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker were done playing.

Blair’s faces after Thursday’s draft?

Five angry red faces sent to his Twitter followers.

The fact Hill was traded to the team that plays in his hometown was no consolation. One of the most affable of Spurs was not up to speaking to the reporters he always accommodated, win or lose, hero or goat.

“He is real emotional right now,” said his agent, Michael Whitacre.

Those close to Hill say he is leaving town neither willingly nor happily.

Perhaps he was happy to have escaped Indy and now he's pissed about being forced to come back here...? All this talk about him being a glue guy may turn out to be pretty far off base...

I've heard the contrary from other people, and that George Hill actually asked to be traded closer to home. However, he did have some previous resentment towards the Pacers' organization for passing on him in the draft and was never a fan of Jim O'Brien for his own reasons (which probably were justified in hindsight).

I don't believe this.

He said he was thankful for what the Spurs did for in his career and he was excited to return to Indy.

Maybe he's emotional about leaving the Spurs and getting to know them and that's 100% understandable, but at the same time happy about coming to the Pacers.

Besides those are coming from San Antonio reporters.

Dejuan Blair not happy at all about the trade

I think he's more upset with the Spurs brass than he is with returning to Indianapolis.

He probably thought that the Spurs were going to trade Tony Parker and name him the full-time starter. Now to find out he's been traded for the #15 draft pick and 2 Euros that will probably never play in the NBA because the Spurs didn't want to have to pay him longterm money... that has to feel like a slap in the face.

I think he'll like playing for the Pacers and he'll be a fan favorite because of his personality and game.

06-24-2011, 05:24 PM
He expressed his feelings on Twitter: "Very emotional moment right now!!! But just want to Thank Everyone for all the Support. SA has been great to me and will never forget it!!"



He doesn't sound too unhappy about the trade at all.

Just mixed emotions between saying goodbye to the team he's played for since being draft, but is thrilled to be coming home.

06-24-2011, 05:26 PM
I have no doubt that he was disappointed to be traded in general. This is commonly viewed as "you aren't as important to us as x player is" and that is a knock on your ego regardless of the truth behind that or not.

With that in mind I HIGHLY doubt that he has any serious reservations about Indiana in general. Dude regularly comes back here for camps and alike (he's in the Pro-Am this off-season here) and he has a tattoo of the state on his torso.

That doesn't sound like someone looking to get away from Indy to me. Dude just had his world shattered, unexpectedly. And his best friend is peeved about it.

All of this part makes sense. And I don't blame him.

Links? And of course he's going to publicly say that he's happy to come back home to the media here, but he was in S.A. when the trade went down, so the people close to him there are going to have a much better gauge of his true reaction.

I'd be ticked too if I was being groomed to be the point guard of the future and then get traded for a guy who's offensive abilities are suspect, a second rounder who may or not pan out, and a guy who may or may not ever come to the NBA PERIOD....

But let that be the Spurs problem when George gets to play them twice a year. :D

Brad8888
06-24-2011, 05:43 PM
I would suspect, but have absolutely no proof, that George Hill has completely mixed feelings at this point. Like others have stated, he thought he was the next starter for the Spurs during their rebuilding process and had acclimated to living in San Antonio. He probably still has ties here as well, but who knows where his heart lies at this point?

Also, if he committed to buying a house when he was a rookie in San Antonio, he is about to take a potentially major bath on unloading it, which would be a significant hit to him at his currently low salary, or make the choice to maintain it for years which could still prove to be expensive.

Another potential problem for him is the lockout. If he moves here and there is indeed a long lockout, he will have far less cash flow to support himself with in the interim, further damaging him financially regardless of what his position is with respect to the labor issues faced by the league and its players.

I don't envy George Hill at this point. His life just got worse for the time being, and I suspect that he is fully aware of that fact.

From Pacers.com:



“It’s tough, but at the same time, things happen for a reason,” said Hill. “My hat is off to San Antonio for the opportunity I had here and I’m really looking forward to coming home to Indiana and helping the Pacers win games.”

I think both responses are natural. It seems he was comfortable in San Antonio, and was therefore sad about leaving. His being unhappy about being traded likely would have been the response anywhere he went. Coming here, no doubt he is ready to get to work to make the team the best he can. I think both feelings can co-exist.

Love your avatar. Who is she?

He's a Pacer for now. The subject of the thread comes out of conflicting reports (imagine that on the innerwebs, eh?) of whether he is happy or not with this trade.

His happiness is material to his future success here, and, like all things on all discussion boards that are worth visiting, is subject to speculation and thoughtful discussion and debate.

If his financial situation is not in his thoughts, even at this early stage, I would be pretty surprised. If it is not, hopefully he has a competent financial advisor who can be trusted to help him avoid problems and think about this for him and let him know where he stands.

Of course he didn't want to leave San Antonio. I'd imagine that he is not happy about being traded at all. He isn't TJ Ford, he won't be doing dances in the airport. He was an integral part of the NBA best record last year. Close relationship with his coach.

Lets hope he and Vogel can have half the relationship he had with Pop.

I don't get the bashing of the article. Nonroe is a quality guy and isn't afraid to call out the Spurs when needed. He just laid out what happened and gave some background on why the trade happened. It even gave a little light to the "Pops favorite player" thing.

I'm happy he is coming to the Pacers and sad he is leaving the Spurs, but in that order. He was very popular here because if you are a good guy this town loves you. I can't blaim him for being upset, and that's not even including the lighter pay check since he now has to pay more in taxes.

Lets face it SA is not a bad place to live and is an even better franchise than the Pacers. I would be pretty pissed too if I got screwed by a world class organization.

Thanks, appreciate it .. Ya I got my senior green belt, almost had my brown , but i had a head injury that kept me from competing in tournaments, so i ended up dropping out... It's crazy how nowadays they just GIVE belts away every 2 months like candy ... Back when I started I was 9 yrs old ....and I went through all my belt colors up to brown in the time i trained.. That is not including the belt tips for each colored belt... Then I went through all my senior belts but fell short of testing for my brown.... Nowadays , the teachers don't make it as hard to earn belts.. Don't get me wrong, some of the old school and oriental masters still do..
I trained with Bud McCorkle , Don Johns, Lowel Stevens , Lowel Slavin , Master Yung Park.

You can be shocked, saddened, and angered that you've been traded from the team you worked hard to make yourself an important part of... and also be happy that if you have been traded it's to a team that you genuinely like, respect, and are honored to be a part of.

Everyone take note that I did not say this. I'm trying to take the high road and make room for both.

But can we agree that Blair appears to at least have the better commercial personality between the two. ;)



Coming here, no doubt he is ready to get to work to make the team the best he can. I think both feelings can co-exist.

All I know is George Hill didn't look too happy when he walked through the airport tunnel upon arriving in Indy would be an understatement. Maybe it was jetlag...??? Or maybe he really was taken aback by the Area55 crew greeting him. Hard to say; only he knows for sure.

I understand players don't like being traded especially when they make long-term plans like he and Dejuan Blair apparently had, but it's part of the business of professional sports. Certainly, if the trade caught him off-guard - the owners telling him one thing, but something entirely different happens - all one can do is take time off to push your emotions aside, get your head on straight, and be ready to play ball for your new team come tip-off time.

Welcome to the NBA where very few players get to remain with the team who drafted them their entire career. It's a rarity for sure - moreso now than 20-30 years ago.

That said, I hope is happy to not only be back in his home state, but that he takes a professional's attitude about the trade and just comes in ready to play. I've seen him play since going to the Spurs and I like the lad alot. I think he'll be a fine addition to the team.

He's really happy to be home as he was saying in his presser today. He said all the right things and I would never think he wasn't happy to be here.

I heard he's already requesting a trade to the Nets.

Oh please. The thread title was based directly on what was said in the two articles I posted. Both stated bluntly that Hill was not happy about the trade. Don't kill the messenger.

Luckily, we've got basically 4 pages worth of material showing how G.Hill feels the exact opposite of what the thread title says.

Ha ha, wow. OK, apparently no one even read my actual post, they just read the title and started crying about it.

I'm not the one who said Hill wasn't happy, I was just repeating what two separate articles in the San Antonio Express stated very clearly on the day after the draft. It's not like I want Hill to be pissed off about having to play here, and I'm glad to see that he's being positive about it now.

I know it's the internet people, but at least make somewhat of an attempt to not be completely ridiculous.

I call shenanigans. "Not at all" happy? You're more than just a messenger when you massage the message. That's called editorializing. And in this case, it's also a pretty obvious exaggeration of the facts.

Apparently George isn't too excited about coming back home...

Perhaps he was happy to have escaped Indy and now he's pissed about being forced to come back here...? All this talk about him being a glue guy may turn out to be pretty far off base...

Seems like more than you just being the messenger to me. Awfully suggestive and assumptive there with the whole "happy to have escaped Indy" nonsense.
