Kids got classExtremely well crafted. He has paid a significant compliment to San Antonio and has provided Indianapolis a lot to look forward to. But most importantly, he has already let us know what kind of a young man he is.

Things have changed very quickly from the posts made when the trade was first announced.

All I can say is that I will be extremely surprised if Hill does not quickly become one of the team leaders and a player that is likely to become one of my favorites.

OK, really people, how much fun is it going to be to watch GH, DG, PG and RH fight for the leadership position on this team using pillows? These guys are too good to be true.

Thank you Larry Bird for bringing in some high quality people to represent the Indiana Pacers.

I don't think we have to worry about DG fighting for the leadership role.

Anyways, it is a great read from a man who seems to know what a difference he can make off the court as a professional. Can't wait!

One of the most articulate responses I've ever heard from a sportsman. Once again, fantastic trade by Larry. Can't wait to see him on the court

Anyone else notice that at the end when he put "See you later San Antonio," he put the "see you later" part in italics? I think it's pretty obvious that it was a wink-wink gesture towards SA to let them know that he's not going to re-sign with the Pacers, and is going back to San Antonio after this year. I mean, it's quite obvious. They'd be working to extend his contract now if he was staying, which they're not. And if he wasn't planning to just bolt, he would've named the blog Indiana George Hill, not Indiana George - a blog that can be conveniently taken over by Paul George once Hill bolts. Because PG is in on this with George Hill, since PG even just wants to go play for the Lakers once his rookie deal is over. Free agents hate Indiana. And by now you're reading this and thinking, really, is this guy serious? And the answer is no, no I'm not. Glad to have Hill on this team.

If what you say is true, I will be highly upset and may stop watching until the playing field is leveled. Plus if this year doesn't even happen does that mean we never see him play for us, and PG will only have 2 years left on his rookie deal, and Hibbert will need to be re-signed?

Or do the contracts pick-up where they left off?

I missed the last part, he had me there for a minute!:laugh:

Still though I don't understand how the contract situation works if the season is never played?

Went from:confused: ... to :bs: ... to are you :censored: kidding? ... to :D

It like one of those trick quizzes where at the beginning it says to read everything first, then there are a bunch or ridiculous questions. The last one says ignore everything and write your name on the top or something.

As far as George hill goes, thank you Larry! Great guy to have here. I really feel like we're getting somewhere.

It took me a while to realize you were only joking.

I was going to say. No need to read too much into this.

The lockout really has been effecting people on PD and people have been thinking and reading too much into **** and acting stupid.

George Hill is really freakin happy to be back home, but will miss the friends he made with the Spurs players and that organization.

He's going to be huge for us and for the future.

We're looking great. Finally can kiss the dark days of the Pacers between 07-10 goodbye and hello to a good young team and a packed CFH.

Wow I really wanted to just ignore you for this post alone. Glad I read it all the way through.


I think George is gonna give us all the good that Jarrett Jack did.

That is all up for negotiation. It could just be replayed as if the lock-out never happened, unlikely, or it is just a lost year(most likely).

I think he'll give us the good of Jarrett Jack and more. He's been in a mode where he feels the need to defer to san antonio's hall of fame players, hence why he performs so much better subbing in for injured stars than playing as their backup, despite the minutes being somewhhat similar in both situations. Without the established heirarchy and high profile stars I think Hill will let lose on offense a little bit more often.

I think he'll have a nice jump scoring the ball next year, while maintining his rep as an excellent defensive player. If we get a nene or someone else, that will move tyler to the bench beast role who else in the league really has a clear cut better bench than

Stephenson/ Hill
Hill/ Rush
Rush/Posey
Hansbrough
Foster

At the very least it'd be up there Hill is already one of the better reserve players and a big part of winning teams, and hans would absolutely eat backup power forwards of offense.

If stephenson shows promise it could be the best bench in the entire NBA, and teams with great benches tend to put up gaudy regular season win totals.
