Last June, the talent starved New York Knicks with the eigth overall pick in the NBA Draft decided to select 6-10 forward Jordan Hill out of the University of Arizona. Hill was an unknown to New Yorkers and was not treated kindly by the Knick faithful inside the WaMu theatre at Madison Square Garden on draft night. As the 2009-2010 NBA season is a litte over 2weeks underway and Brandon Jennings who the Knicks passed up on is averaging 20.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.2 Assists while Hill has not started a game and has barely seen any minutes. On Friday Night against the Golden State Warriors Jordan Surprisingly got the start to begin the secind half by head coach Mike D'Antoni and proceeded to score eight quick points in the 3rd quarter. Hill spoke with me after the game. Listen to why he says it's tough to not be playing many minutes why he's playing with a chip on his shoulder, he tells us what his GAME is, what it's like playing on the elite level of the NBA, and how much he enjoys playing at the World's Most Famous Arena.
