One of the reasons why we love the summer so much is because we get to see a lot of our favorite NBA players and players that probably should be in the NBA, compete in pro-am games. A few days ago, we got to see Steph Curry put up 43 in his San Fran Pro Am debut and we can’t tell you how excited we are to be bringing you the best highlights from the upcoming Seattle Pro-Am with Jamal Crawford.
Another reason why we love the summer so much is because we get to go on tours like the Ballup one and follow our favorite streetballers and dunkers. On Sunday, July 6th, the Ballup crew will be playing in Indianapolis at Arsenal Tech Gym to play a team coached by the Pacers’ George Hill.
Unlike the ballers on Ballup, Hill isn’t known for fancy moves and although he’s not one of the flashiest or known guards in the league, he’s been one of the most underrated for a couple of years now.
A couple years ago, Hill introduced himself to Indy by competing in the Indy Pro-Am league, along with Eric Gordon, Mario Chalmers, Lance Stephenson and Gordon Hayward, and he put up a masterpiece game worth remembering. Hill hit 21 of 25 shots (many on Shelvin Mack) on his way to 50 points and also grabbed 12 boards.
His back court teammate, Eric Gordon, stole the show in the championship game with 46 points.
