For the record, any team that has both Paul and George on their side has a VERY unfair advantage. I'm serious, its not even close to being fair. Our squad managed to tie them up in a best of three and then PG and George just turned it on on us in the deciding game :laugh:
George Hill is one of the most gifted natural athletes I think I've ever seen. His body is a prototype for just about any sport. Basketball, soccer, football, baseball, he probably could have played pretty much anything he wanted.
Random thought I know, but him dominating even in something like dodgeball doesn't surprise in the least.
Oh he dominated alright. There was one round where it was him vs something like 5 remaining players. 45 seconds later, George won the game for his team. :laugh:
And for a guy who is supposedly "out of shape", and at natural disadvantage by being 19 feet tall, Roy was incredibly elusive when it came to dodging.
I want to know where I can get some of those blue/gold overalls that the George's were wearing....

Everytime Roy jumps I still have to look to see if he actually got off the ground. It's like his feet rock back and forth but don't actually clear the ground at the same time.
Would be awesome to see Roy vs Rick Smits in his prime in a dunking contest. Greatest dunk contest ever.
That seems incredibly fun.
PG wasn't wearing flip flops was he? God forbid he turn an ankle playing friggin dodgeball. Hill looks kinda serious out there. And since when have you been able to cross the half court line in dodgeball?!
Didn't get to go cause I bought my way in. I don't know, I thought that rule was incredibly stupid. Sorry that I made the finals and didnt get picked so I paid 1200 dollars to support my team and the pacers organization and I've been to EVERY single game this year including pre season and cheer as loud as anyone else EVERY game. Sorry for the rant. Just felt it was really offensive that buy ins couldn't attend. I know it's not the players faults or anything but was just really disappointing to me.
When I saw that the first thing I thought was "do we really want our important players burning up energy on the one single day of rest in a long series??
I'm thinking it was likely scheduled before the Chicago game was moved. Still I'd have rather postponed it.
Our guys just looked gassed the next night and lost a close one to an inferrior team. Sucks
Here's the problem, (and for the record I thought buy ins should have been invited), as it was, the practice court was 100% full with just winners who came out, and believe me, not all the winners were all able to make it. After that, I understood why they went the way they did. There will be other opportunities that will involve buy ins as well, so don't feel like the buyins are secondclass citizens, because the win-ins sure as hell dont feel that way. :)
Honestly, where are the stills of people just mid-blast, that's what I wanted to see. Let's see some blue and gold blood, let's see the Nike logo smashed into someone's forehead.
Also I suggest they do this next year and for charity non-members like us get to pay the players to drill G2/A55 members of our choosing while we observe from the street level windows. Maybe a gladiator thumbs up/down approval of the hit before they can move on to the next.
There will be G2 Zone events in the future that all members - buy-in or not- are invited to.
Something I just thought of, while I agree with them doing this. Should they really have been doing it on day 6 of a 5 games in 7 day stretch?
Maybe if they were going against NBA-caliber opponents it would have been bad. Going against a bunch of fans.... they didn't break a sweat.
