Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Keith Rivas – Many would argue that is way too high for a guy like George Hill but to those people I would ask that you wait and see what Hill has cooking heading into next season.
Roy Hibbert, a guy that caused about as much problems with the Indiana Pacers as he did good, is now gone. Paul George will be back and ready to go after fully recovering from a nasty spill not too long ago — and he’ll need all the help he can get.
While statistically speaking, Hill’s numbers don’t really jump off the page, his attitude about the game and his willingness to learn from his mistakes get him in the top ten of my list.
Sauping R. Arguello – Hill has always been a great defensive player but his point guard skills have been a work in progress. He’s considered as a combo guard.
Ben Buchanan – Hill is a decent role player who is a good fit as the ball handler in the Pacers offense. He has always been a good shooter (career 37 percent 3-point shooter) and had his best statistical season ever last year, where he averaged a career high 16.1 points — a number that rose from 10.3 last year, and really shows how he took charge with Paul George out.
Hill’s assist numbers also skyrocketed. He averaged 5.1 apg, much higher than his career average of 2.3. Shows he is a good distributor which is key for a ball handler.
Jr. Williams – George Hill is a highly durable point guard, his offensive numbers are solid, and he protects the ball exceptionally well, which is why he makes the top-20 list of PGs in the NBA. I would have liked to see him rank higher in overall team impact, however, i think the N0.18 spot is an accurate ranking.
