    He definitely plays with an edge. That mindset alone is a skill.

    Not to nit-pick but I would like to see a li'l more passing if I have to sit through a "point guards" high light package.... There wasn't a single assist in that package... yawn!

    No, that isn't a knock on Hill.

    Hill is really more of a SG with some PG abilities, but he'll still be a much better back-up to DC than AJ. Honestly, Lance is more of a PG than Hill is.

    Hill brings perimeter defense and shooting to the table (two things we were sorely missing), as well as the ability to finish at the rim. He's a smart and savvy player, and his offensive game is surprisingly smooth. But he's not going to "wow" you with amazing passes (though his passing is still adequate, IMO).

    If Hill were 3-4 inches taller, he'd be a star SG in this league.

    LOL.....that theft on Kobe where all Kobe could do was flop and act like George fouled him.

    That song on the video is straight **** by the way, at least in my opinion.

    He's good in transition, gets deflections resulting in easy layups but the part that intrigues me even more is he has become a solid jump shooter and he can create his own shot and looks good on isolations offensivly. We don't have a player who can do that besides Stephenson and Paul George who has shown flashes of creating his own shot. I love him as a addition but he'll have to improve his court vision a bit.

    If Paul George were 3-4 inches taller he'd be the most athletic Center in the NBA...

    If Hansbrough were 3-4 inches taller he would be one of the most feared guys in the NBA...

    If Roy Hibbert were 3-4 inches taller, he would be unstoppable...

    This game is fun.

    I don't know why people are freaking out about hill running point and not knowing how to pass etc. He's a capable passer, not a great one, but it seems pretty obvious to me that his role is going to be very similar to Jason Terry on the Mavs. He's gonna be receiving passes and scoring, and occasionally handling the ball.

    So it's George Hill's fault that the random youtube user who put together that video didn't include any footage of his assists?

    2 small but really effective things that really impress me about George Hill's game:

    1. he protects the ball with his body when he gets inside for the easy buckets
    2. his ball fakes and mobility remind of a miniature Olajuwon. He's very creative once he gets his defender off balance.

    Become... Dude has been a good jump shooter since forever... He never even shot less than 50% when he was in college.

    Hill is a playmaker I believe, especially how he can draw defenses to him, should leave a lot of people open on the wings to hit 3's, (Praying Paul's 3pt shot gets more consistency)...

    I think he sees the court well... but the only thing that I haven't really seen him do much is run set plays... that will be interesting to see how he does with that on the Pacers...

    He will be more of a facilitator as a PG than a high-assist guy. He will keep the ball and the offense moving, but I don't think he will ever have a ton of assists or crazy passes.

    The only reason to play him at the point is for his defense. Offensively, DC is more of a point guard (yes, really).

    That's why I doubt he becomes our starting point guard, though his defense may be enough to make that happen, who knows.

    My guess is we'll start DC and George, and then bring in Lance and Hill at the same time. Those two could really help one another, I think.

    Yeah, keyed in right away on that. He looks and plays much bigger than 6'2". Standing next to the 6'6" Kobe he looks like like he's only 2 inches shorter.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Either Bird or Morway (I think it was Morway) said that George Hill was 6'4". I was suprised when he said it, but he looks more 6'4" than 6'2".

    I don't expect Hill to come in here and be Mark Jackson, but I hope he doesn't stagnate the offense like AJ and Dahntay do. As long as he plays defense and keep the ball moving on offense, he'll be an adequate enough backup PG. That said, I hope he plays more SG than PG.

    My impression from the highlights is that he has really smooth handles like Quis did. In fact, Hill's game reminds me alot of Quis but without the injury concerns and with more physicality and defense.

    Thats what I'm saying. He seemed like a great passer whenever I watched the spurs. I think he is super talented but wasn't one of the spurs main options like Ginobili or Parker. In Indiana I could see him as Indiana's starting point guard if Collison doesn't step up his game a lot from last year.

    What does it take to be a successful starting PG just wondering... I mean I think taking care of the ball, making smart passes, being able to see the floor, and being able to get past people, play good individual defense

    From what I have seen Hill posses all of these things...

    Didn't say that at all. I don't blame George Hill for being a 6'2 SG either, but he is a 6'2 guy who will play a lot of SG for us. I'd love Hill if he simply played PG for us cuz I care more about defense than offense, but I don't like the mismatch of a 6'2 guy vs a 6'6/6'7 guy.

    I think he plays smart too. He always comes across a player that's running a second ahead of the game, thus the steals or the McHale special step under scoop layups.

    JJ Berea was one of the key guys that needed to be shut down by teams trying to stop the Mavs from going to the title. In that first video you see Hill just destroy one of his layup attempts. That has value.
