Pacers’ Hill Hurts Chances of Team USA Bid

George Hill is a man of his word. While he was honored to receive an invitation out to Las Vegas to participate in USA Basketball National Team’s minicamp, a time for individuals to make an impression on USA Basketball officials, he couldn’t bear the thought of letting kids down in Texas.
Hill, the Pacers starting point guard last season, pulled out before the four-day minicamp opened so that he could remain in Texas and his camp could go on, as promised. Teammate Paul George, however, is participating.
Hill proudly stands behind his decision, and although he hasn’t spoken with anyone from USA Basketball directly, he admits that it’ll surely affect his status with the program moving forward.
“I’m sure it’ll affect it,” he said. “I’m sure there’s going to be people that don’t agree with my decision but also there’s going to be people that do agree. Knowing that I just stayed true to myself and stayed by my decision to keep my word, I should be fine.
