Milwaukee Bucks guard George Hill has regrets about going to the NBA Bubble — saying he feels helpless to take real action in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting.
“It’s just sickening. It’s heartless. It’s a f*cked up situation,” Hill said after defeating the Orlando Magic in Monday’s playoff game.
“You’re supposed to look at the police to protect and serve. Now, it’s looked at harass or shoot.”
When asked what the Bucks organization and players can do — since the shooting took place in Kenosha, WI (about 45 minutes from their home arena) — Hill didn’t hold back his thoughts.
“We can’t do anything. First of all, we shouldn’t have even came to this damn place, to be honest. I think coming here just took all the focal points off what the issues are.”
Hill continued, “But, we’re here, so it is what it is,” Hill said. “We can’t do anything from right here, but I think definitely when it’s all settled, some things have to be done.”
The NBA player also went off about the cops involved in the shooting — saying, “To almost take a man’s life, especially in front of one’s kids, that wasn’t resisting in his back at point-blank range, is a heartless and gutless situation. We need some justice for that.”
