    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.
    The guy has a 6'9" wingspan. I think he'll be just fine.

    The one thing I loved more than anything is that he attacks the basket, which very few (if any) of our players do.

    That's going to be huge for us. He can draw defenders and get easy baskets for Tyler and Roy, not to mention he's an excellent finisher at the rim.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    Yup. Hill's 3.6 FTA per game last season would have tied Tyler for second on the team, behind Danny's 5.9 FTA. Actually I'm kind of expecting a breakout year from him, at least scoring wise.

    Corner 3 will be a HUGE weapon for this team too. He'll play off of Roy in the low post for lay ups. Doesn't turn the ball over, good percentages from 3 and the line. Very very good defensively. Unselfish, high basketball IQ.

    I can't believe some didn't absolutely love this trade. No he's not a superstar, but he's a guy that is a winner and does the things tangible and intangible to cause that.

    Just a huge piece moving forward, great step. I'm still shocked SA did it, they loved him.

    To ease on confusion...
    Can we please start referring to George Hill as Hill or something other than George ??

    We already have a George , and it is his last name.. lol..

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    I love his ability to finish at the rim. Last season it seemed like we had so many missed layups or mistimed dunks by our guards. His ability to not only get to the rim, but finish is something Im really looking forward to.

    I saw a little of Parker and a little of Manu at the rim in that video. I hope he shows George and Collison a couple of things (defensively too).

    Paul George and George Hill combined have a 13 foot 8 inch wingspan.

    Did Jay Bilas join PD? Whats with all the wingspan talk?

    I understand its nice, but it doesn't make up for the 4 inches most SGs will have on him.

    And he's not new to the NBA. He's played them before. And defended well.

    Standing reach and wingspan are what really matters all together, they tell what your range is... that is how you know how much you are really giving up, much more important than height.

    For what it's worth, Hill is the third best rating in the Pacers in NBA2K11: http://thereal2kinsider.blogspot.com...-w-jordan.html

    Because the best perimeter defenders consistently have long wing spans. Pure height on the perimeter isn't as necessary as it is in the paint.
