Jordan Hill Discussion: Back for 2 yr/$18 mil

Re: J-Hill: HOF material (Ham on fire!)

Our frontcourt is going to be so bad if we keep D'antoni.. Kelly & Sacre starting with Wes as the primary backup PF & probably Shawne Williams returning as the backup C :man10: I guess the 1 bright side is we'd get to keep our top 5 protected pick.

Hill > 'Antoni. Also, IMO, Hill > Kelly, so he has a right to be not happy about being benched for the rookie. Kelly is playing very good ball, but the rook should be the one taking a seat here, not Hill.

Hill just had two of the best games of his career so it makes perfect sense to bench him last night.

Just driving bigs out left and right. Nice job MDA. Jacka**.

We seriously need to fire him ASAP when the season is over if we want any chance of getting him back. Any other player has a great game, that mother effer gets put in the starting lineup. Hill has a good game and gets demoted to the end of the bench. :freak2:

^^ Yep.

And now I'm going to say it. I hate Mike Antoni more than I ever disliked Mike Brown. Brown I at least thought was a good guy, although absolutely clueless.

Antoni is a different beast. He's a jerk. An ill-tempered, stubborn jerk. I really can't stand him. I never have liked him either. Didn't on the Suns, didn't on the Knicks, didn't when we hired him and I really don't now that we've had to put up with him and his terrible coaching for two years.

I can't wait until this guy is gone. I just hope it's sooner than later. I don't think I can take another year of this garbage.

I hope Hill sticks around.

Here's a question: the guy is always producing when given the minutes but where else could he start immediately on a contract greater than we'll offer him?

I think he just wants consistent minutes. He'll go somewhere else for cheaper if it means he gets a consistent 20 minutes a night.

Lakers - 5 million + MDA
Other team - 4 million + Consistent time

He's not picking the Lakers in that scenario.

No I don't disagree with that at all. I was genuinely curious where he could start on a team as long as that team has a reasonable shot at him this summer. I was just wondering what teams out there could plug him in immediately.

there's absolutely no way hill stays if dantoni sticks around

and i don't blame him either. he's one of the only guys who gives it his all each and every night and in return he gets benched

Name people who are still fans of MDA after playing a full season with him. Lin? Dude's burning bridges left and right - and if he were producing wins you could forgive him. He'd be a mad genius. As it is he seems a mad imbecile.

Lakers must get Dante Exum at all costs. I believe he and Joel Embiid are the two most franchise-like players in the draft.

Maybe we could somehow get both?!?! Like if we traded Meeks who is a budding superstar for the second pick?!?!

Jordan Hill sounds like he's out of here. He says he wouldn't mind coming back, but seems like he's looking forward to free agency options

I asked Hill what his ideal role is in the NBA. In sum: 25-27 mpg at PF, though he said he's happy playing "any position."

It's so frustrating knowing that, outside of money, we have that for him right here.

I hope he comes back or at least finds a place where he gets the minutes he wants. I'm not sure there's a place out there for him like that, but I hope there is.

The fact that I have him for a dollar in my dynasty league and that he puts up great numbers when given minutes has nothing to do with my opinion...

Will be really irritating if Hill gets picked up by a playoff team and promptly produces for them with a consistent role 20-25 minutes off the bench.

He could even be a starter playing the hustle and dirty work role made famous by Jim Chones, Mark Landsberger, Kurt Rambis and AC Green for the Showtime teams. But sure as s---, he'll be doing it for someone else.
