Do you want to play point guard for the Spurs?


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.

Welcome to America, Fenerbahce Ulker.

The Turkish powerhouse was in America playing some exhibition games this preseason, and they got a first-hand reminder that Kevin Durant is back. KD had 13 points in the Thunder’s easy 111-81 win.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook got in on the act.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
