Spurs' Hill latest with nude photos, apology

Feb 9, 2010, 8:17 PM EDT

Among the things to now add to those NBA rookie introduction classes is “don’t take nude pictures of yourself with your cell phone then ship them to women you are trying to impress.” Yes, you would think that would be common sense, but…

The San Antonio Spurs guard George Hill is the latest to have his nude photos surface on the Internet when a spurned woman decided to get revenge.

“A year ago I made a mistake and take full responsibility for my actions. I have matured and learned from this episode,” Hill said in a released statement where apologized to his girlfriend, family and Spurs fans.

Hill was a relatively unheralded guard out of Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, and is the only player from that school to ever make the NBA. And he is making the most of it, becoming a solid contributor to the Spurs playing 26 minutes a night and averaging 10.9 points per game. He is a good shooter, can hit the three (37% this season) and gets to the line. He’s going to be in the league for a long time.

Hill’s announcement comes on the heels of nude photos of Portland’s Greg Oden being posted on the Web. Guys, put away the cell phone cameras, you’re an NBA player — a celebrity — and if you send these photos out bad things are going to happen. And I really don’t want to write any more of these stories.

    You’all are certainly busy. I’ve lost count of the number of threads — just for today.
    Maybe this subject shouldn’t count as a complete post. I think nude photos may surface for the next 6 mos or so – from people having sent them out over the last couple of years – but I doubt there will not be any new occurrences going forward from this date.
    Naive is too kind a word for these young men.

    Online marketing is not just for the ongoing product, making a website or for letting customers buy items online. Online marketing can also include how a business proprietor can engage a work team. The measure of people who are taking computers, web design, and learning to host websites proves just how productive online marketing can make the employer, the employees, and the independent contractors. And with a sufficient Internet savvy team, your business earnings can increase too. :)
