Hill on Anderson, Splitter, LeBron James and the Lakers


San Antonio Spurs’ guard, George Hill, continues to hold children’s basketball camps throughout South Texas. This time stopping in Brownsville, Texas.

In an interview with brownsvilleherald.com, Hill gave his thoughts on two new Spurs, James Anderson and Tiago Splitter, what he thinks about LeBron James signing with the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Hill on Splitter and Anderson:

“They are two great players,” Hill said. “James Anderson, being a rookie, is going to be in the same shoes I was. Trying to come in and learn new things, and what role he fits in. I think he can be a major impact for us right away. I’m really looking forward to this season.”

Hill on James signing with the Heat:

“I have nothing but positive things to say about LeBron,” he said. “He’s a good friend of mine. I have the upmost respect for him. That’s what he chose to do. I tip my hat off to him and I wish him the best.”

Hill on the Lakers and their recent player acquisitions:

“Everything has to go through them right now because they’re the world champions,” Hill said. “Everyone knows that. We have to come to play every game. Anything can happen in the NBA. I think everyone witnesses that.”

Hill will continue his South Texas visits in Edinburg, Texas today. This will be the last city he will visit.

However, for as much as Hill gave his thoughts on the Spurs and the NBA, what’s more important are his efforts to give back to the Spurs fans of South Texas. To take time out of his offseason to conduct basketball camps for the children of South Texas is admirable. Got to give him a standing ovation.

Just goes to show you the Spurs are truly a classy organization.
