Exactly. They wait a whole 2 months when the Lakers start their championship run, Jordan Hill is now healthy and part of the rotation, playing as one of the best bench players for the Lakers, and now the legal *******s pull this ****.

Family politics probably, one side of the family saying let it go, the other .... lost my Dad and Grandmother at basically the same time almost 5 years ago and the bickering and in fighting in our family that resulted is still going on. A family splits over an issue they are worse than Democrats and Republicans voting on a pop corn fart subsidy...

Since when does family place charges on family?, and why wait until Hill start to make a name for himself and get some shine a month or two later to place them? Sounds shady already. If he is convicted it will suck for us Lakers fan, because he is giving 10.6 pts 11rebs 2blks off the bench from the OKC game to now. :facepalm: Just the worst timing.

Although I would agree with you on this point most of the time, this case is not one. This is a clear cut he said/she said (or he said/he said) case that does not need forensic evidence or much follow up to determine if an arrest is required.

This time delay means one of two things:
1) The victim originally refused complaints (refused to prosecute) and then changed their mind OR
2) The victim never came forward until just recently (past week) to make the accusation.


Either way, I would've had a hard time following through against Hill with much vigor. I would be surprised if they push Hill to turn himself in prior to the playoffs ending (or if the Lakers sweep, possibly at that time to get it done with a few days off)

Unfortunately, family can turn out to be the most vindictive people you know if you cross them. Whoever is placing the charges now may have decided at the time of the alleged assault they would wait just to make the charge hurt the most.

Complete BS if the league lets Houston get away with this. How could they not know... Granted, it does not sound like he was arrested at the time and this might be some madeup ex GF bs trying to get a settlement, but I'd imagine someone knew about this...and they ditched him right in time.

Los Angeles Lakers center Jordan Hill is facing assault charges in Houston after he allegedly choked a family member, TMZ.com reported Monday.

The incident allegedly took place in late February when Hill was still a member of the Houston Rockets.

The Houston district attorney's office charged the 24-year-old bench player with third-degree felony assault, according to the report. It was not clear what the alleged victim's relationship was to the 6-foot-10-inch center.

Hill was traded to Los Angeles in March in exchange for veteran guard Derek Fisher and a first-round draft pick.

The former Arizona star was drafted eighth overall by the New York Knicks in 2009. He has averaged 5.3 points and 4.2 rebounds per game in three seasons with the Knicks, Rockets and Lakers.

Since family allegedly choked other family? You don't let someone off for something because they are family. It just gives them reason to not see they're wrong and do it again.

If he doesn't have a record - he will do little to no time. Too many specialty courts exist for a first-time offender, especially when it is domestic and/or involves a family member. He'll get probation with intensive treatment if he doesn't have a prior record. I run a specialty court for the State Government - I know what I'm talking about.

Actually, they are once the DA and a competent defense attorney start talking. It will get pleaded down, unless someone is looking to make a name for him or herself, or if Hill has a violent, criminal history already. If this is his first and only offense he'll be released on his own recognizance. Shouldn't impede Hill's chance of playing in the playoffs at all.

No amount of homework will obviate a domestic dispute that comes to light months after the occurence and likely for no other reason than the injured party felt the need for "get back."

And the latest reports are that it wasn't with a relative, but with a girlfriend. No, I'm not saying that it's ever right to lay hands on a female, but that might explain why an assault that occured in February is just now coming to light. The article below also indicates that the argument was over his future. If true, beware: woman scorned.

That someone is Hill and only Hill don't you think he should own up to what he did, instead of saying is trying to sabotage the lakers, these players should be given a 1 yr suspension, goes the same for Ron Artest world peace what a frigging joke, and I am not just talking about basketball, its football, hockey, baseball, they need to send a strong message to the unions and also the players and owners of these teams. 1 time offender is a warning 2nd time your suspended for 1 without PAY if you do not like it then find another way to make a living.

He is an idiot. If you are a good person, you dont get involved in **** like this.

Let's hold off until we know the facts. We haven't heard Hill's side yet. For all we know the woman is making it up.

Something similar happened to a cousin of mine. He wanted to end his relationship with his live-in girlfriend at the time. While a huge verbal confrontation ensued, there was no physical component at all on his part. She was the violent aggressor, going as far as breaking a wine bottle against his back shoulder as he was walking out the door. (It would later come to light that a neighbor saw this, unbeknownst to the girlfriend.) My cousin left for the ER, not even bothering to go back for his things. He didn't lay a hand on her. Nevertheless, the very next afternoon the police visited him at his job and arrested him for assault. She lied and said that he was the one that threw the bottle. She also had slight bruises on her arms from where he tried to fend her off, but she claimed that he had inflicted those in an attempt to physcially and sexually assault her. It took two witnesses (1 being the neighbor) as well as the testimony of her own 8 year old son who was there at the time (a child by another man) to get him off. But by then, the damage was already done. He lost his job, his good name, and the bills for his defense attorney and medical therapy were through the roof.

So you see, until we know for certain, let's not cast aspersions on Hill or the woman in question. We just don't know yet.

Firstly, it will be a low first rounder.

Secondly, as is the case with most drafts, even in the NBA, there is no guarantee that Houston will strike gold with said draft pick. Yes, in a void, at face value, with zero circumspect one can say this is a solid move. That's if the transaction in and of itself is the end and all and be all. It's not. The fact is it's too soon to grade this move until you see how it turns out. What if Houston picks up another -- in your words -- crap player? Is it still a good move? No, of course not.

The Lakers are getting production out of Hill now, when and where it counts most: in the playoffs. Unless Houston flips that pick into someone who achieves minimally the same production and value, it is anything but a solid move.
