Lakers forward Jordan Hill has been spending most of his time on the bench since being acquired from the Rockets as part of the Derek Fisher deal. This gives him much time to think, and like any bored man, he took to Twitter. Hill, probably frustrated that he only received three minutes of play-time in the Lakers beat-down of the tanking Golden State Warriors, sent this tweet after the game:
This came just minutes after telling himself to “stay cool.” I would be frustrated as well if I was behind Troy Murphy’s corpse on the depth chart, and I admire his use of the third person. Honestly, Hill probably has a legitimate gripe here, since he is a young, big body that the Lakers could probably use instead of wasting minutes on guys like the aforementioned Murphy. Twitter can be capable of amazing things, though it seems Mike Brown is not part of the social network. That might not bode well for the #freejhill movement.
