George Hill is mad. (Twitter)

Feels like even Joerger wants to back off of the Vets a bit and give the young guys more run. Problem is it appears Vlade wasnt clear enough to the Vets that this is a rebuilding situation and young guys get priority.

Its easy as a fan to say play the young guys more but these are Pros with Egos and lots of talent. They all want to play and all of ZBO/G.Hill/VC/GT/KK have a legit case to be playing over any of the young guys based on skill/seniority.

This was never really a Tim Duncan mentor type situation, seems like it may be kinda messy behind the scenes. (KANGZ).

The "problem" is that a professional getting paid 20M is acting like a baby giving public whiny face incoherent tweets while playing well below expectations, not that Vlade didn't use the exact perfect words to appease this "professional's" ego.

Grow up, get better, and help the team. It's not like you haven't had ample playing time. If you can't do that, don't stir up drama like a giant baby sending out angry face tweets.

So we're for sure that he's not just mad at himself for (yet again) playing like trash?

If he's actually mad at Joerger for benching him, that's pretty laughable. Hill has been terrible all year.

We don't know and that's the point. It appears to be general whining. Some of these adult NBA players have the communication skills of third graders, and unfortunately Hill appears to not have anyone in his circle that can let him know this.

You send out a tweet like this after you get benched, reasonable conclusion is that you're whining to your fans. Not a good look. I just became a fan of trading him (FM3's play helps me).

Can't argue with this logic!

I wonder how tradable Hill is, what with his bloated deal and horrible play.
And now bad attitude. Worst combinations.

I'm extremely disappointed in him, as he had come to us with the reputation of being a stellar team guy and a solid fundamental player. I thought that even if he wouldn't be scoring, we could rely on his fundamentals to help the team, and his mature vet attitude to be a net positive.

This is extremely disappointing.

Calm down. You can only guess as to his meaning with those tweets. You may be right, but you could just as easily be wrong.

3 games into the season I made the prediction that Hill wasn't going to work out. Unfortunately it looks like a good call on my part. We are going to have a hard time getting any value out of trading him.

One has to question why on a winning team last year in Utah he got a good contract offer in a place where he was thriving and he declined it to come sign with a lowly Kings team I know he wanted big money but is it not better to get a good amount of money in a place your playing great rather than going into the unknown not even knowing what kind of offer you might receive (he actually got a way better offer from the Jazz).

That should have been a massive red flag for a rebuilding team

The situation with Hill is strange, but so typical of what happens in Sac.

Hill has a stellar reputation in the league prior to joining the Kings.
Once he joins the Kings, he’s cursed. Can’t play anymore, no desire, and no aggression in his play.

Going to be very difficult to trade that 20 mil.

The other thing... What’s up with Joerger and his post game attitude/arrogance. Not the most likeable guy.

joegers attitude at press conferences have made me uncomfortable for a while now. Especially when Kayte asks him a question. Does he just not like her? On more than one occasion he has come across as a straight up prick. I know the press can ask some stupid questions but I have made a point to listen closely now and I haven't heard one. Maybe something happened behind the scenes that we're not aware of.

Do you actually mean it "could mean anything"? Like anything?

Like, he watched Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter on the way to Milwaukee and loved it. Then after the game, he checked the list of Academy Award nominees for best picture for the year 2012 and tweeted his displeasure?

I noticed this after a recent game as well. Kayte asked a question and he answered in a manner that raised my eyebrows a little. He seemed to purposely not hear her and answered off topic and a manner that expressed annoyance at a stupid question (Dont remember what she asked but it was normal and made sense)

Not necessarily checking that off.

So when Greg Popovich does it, it's cool but when Joerger does it, it means he's a prick? Got it.

People think it could mean anything haha stop it man just stop it. Same people who believe Bledsoe’s tweet that he was at the barber shop and not talking about the suns

Pop has earned the right to do whatever the heck he wants.

Joerger doesn't even belong in the same sentence as him. Win some titles, win 50 games in a row for 20 years straight, then be a tool to the media.

On the original point, Koz has called out Joerger for his attitude, so it certainly isn't just you that noticed

....yes?

I don't even listen to the post-game interviews, but that's how it works in the NBA. No would've tolerated Kobe or Jordan if they were bench players and not the legends they are.

I don't listen to the post game interviews and I don't particularly care about his attitude in them, but I am curious about the context here of what you've noticing. What's getting him so annoyed, can you guys tell?
