Second year man George Hill — out of that little college with like the 18-letter acronym — had been looking like a vet running the point for the Spurs while Tony Parker
lounges around with Eva Longoria does his physical therapy on his broken hand.
Then Hill went down with a sprained ankle against the Lakers, he could be out the rest of the regular season. Suddenly point guard for the Spurs feels as dangerous a job as center for the Blazers.
With a few games left and the Spurs fighting for playoff seeding (and trying to avoid the Lakers in the first round, although maybe they shouldn’t) the Spurs are out of point guards, Gregg Popovich tells the San Antonio Express-News.
That leaves the Spurs devoid of a true point guard, now and for the immediate future. It is a disheartening turn of events for a team that has won 15 of its past 20 games and appeared to be jelling just in time for the playoffs.
Popovich says he is “real worried about everything coming up without Georgie.
I don’t know why he’s worried, it just means more shots for Manu Ginobili. And right how that is the most dangerous weapon in basketball. Just ask the Lakers.
