GHill is clearly some kind of tweener. Nevertheless, he is worth the money. Why? Because he is a big game player.
It doesn't matter if it's the 1 or the 2. He will be in at the end of games. Because he has to be. His ability to perform when it counts will make him worth it. We need to surround him with a creative, playmaking two guard (Lance?) or a point guard that can compliment him. But I really don't think we will regret giving a solid contract to a big game player. My two cents.
Just wanted to say that this is how I feel about George Hill and I believe that this is how the Pacers organisation feels about Hill.
I'm a big fan of George Hill, but not necessarily as my starting point guard. I would probably be ok with it if we had somebody else, ANYBODY else, that could pass the ball at all in our starting unit. Unfortunately we do not, so our starting unit's offense is really just 3 dribbles and shoot the contested jumper or 3 dribbles and pass to the next guy who will do the same. It probably also doesn't help that for some reason we never start to run a play until there is like 10 seconds left on the shot clock.
I think Hill is an average scorer, an average defender and a bad playmaker. I don't see the Billups comparison at all, Billups played like an all-star and was the best player on a championship team while Hill, like I said, is average.
Personally, I don't think Hill is the "answer" at point guard, there are about 10-15 other starting point guards i'd take over him, but we gave Hill a long contract so we might as well wait and see whether he improves
When your small forward, power forward, and center are all allstars you don't need a point guard that passes every time he touches the ball. He has to have good basketball IQ and be able to setup your best playmakers, not average a certain number of assists a night.
