I know that there was a lot of complaining and Front Office ripping after the George Hill draft pick. Especially after his "awesome" summer league performance.
And I also know that pretty much everyone here has now come to the consensus that he was a great pick, and has forgiven the FO for a seemingly miscalculated blunder.
But to those of you who were part of the faction that hated on Cubits, y'all weren't really too far off your rockers, because it seems that even the coaching staff and FO were a little leary of what their draft pick would become. This notebook article has a small section (the second section, after the part about Pop retiring before 2016) about the Spurs' dilemma in dealing with the thought that George might not be what they thought he was cracked up to be. Good for us that he is a tough little cracker, er...um...player.
