2013 NBA Playoffs: Text Message Exchange Between George Hill and Tony Parker Doing No Good
It was recently revealed that San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker had exchanged text messages with Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill in regards to how to beat the Miami Heat. Unfortunately for Hill, LeBron James had other plans. Last night, James and his Heat pulled off an incredible third quarter en route to a game five win to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.
It’s no secret that Hill and Parker are good friends after being teammates in San Antonio prior to the Pacers acquiring Hill. Just what exactly was Parker telling Hill? Those details haven’t quite emerged yet.
Parker was asked by NBA.com to describe his conversations with Hill and said “I watched (all of Indiana’s Game 2 win over Miami). We’ve been texting the whole playoffs. I always follow George. He’s like my little brother, so I always text him.”
CNN’s Rachel Nichols said via Twitter that Parker revealed all during an interview with the point guard, but did not give particulars.
This begs the question, which team do Parker and the Spurs wish to face most in the finals? The way I see it, head coach Gregg Popovich would rather play the best team available to him out of the East. He’s never been a coach to take the easy way out of any situation and most certainly will not start now.
Forward Tim Duncan is playing at one of the highest levels we’ve seen him play at in recent years and the Spurs are clicking on all cylinders. To him, I would bet it doesn’t matter either way. Whether they face the Pacers or Heat, his team absolutely has a fantastic chance to win yet another title.
