George Hill Skipped Team USA Trials to Host Kids’ Camp


Indiana Pacers guard George Hill loves the kids. He bailed on Team USA trials in Las Vegas this week, in order to run a hoops camp for young ballers. Per the Indy Star: “Hill tweeted: ‘What up Twittas! Everything is fine just couldn’t give up on the kids and cancel my kids camp to make it to USA Trials! Wouldn’t felt right!’ Hill is holding his G3 Camps in Texas today, Wednesday and Friday; the USA Basketball minicamp begins today and runs through Thursday in preparation for the 2014 World Cup in Madrid. The Americans have already qualified for the tournament and the camp is an opportunity to get acquainted with coach Mike Krzyzewski and the staff. A USA Basketball spokesman said he expects chairman Jerry Colangelo to speak to Hill about the reason he will not be participating and then determine his future involvement with the program. Hill averaged 14.8 points and a career-high 4.9 assists last season. Pacers spokesman David Benner said that Hill’s decision was a personal one and the team had no further comment.”

    Can’t blame him. He won’t make the Olympic squad and he probably knows that. So it was either get some run against some of the best players or fulfill his obligations to the kids. Can’t blame him at all for the choice he made.

    i was gonna say he has no chance on getting in the team so he might just as well keep his promise, but i guess a lot of you know this fact.
