Video: George Hill imitates David Beckham, Pacers beat Warriors

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This controversy fell under the radar.

On Friday, the Golden State Warriors were robbed of a last-second possession when the Indiana Pacers’ George Hill imitated David Beckham and foot-trapped the ball while defending Monta Ellis.

Hill’s ‘footie’ skills were a kicked-ball violation, and the Warriors should have had possession out of bounds. The refs missed it, Hill raced down-court with the ball.

Game over. Pacers win. Warriors lose. Click the video and get at us with thoughts in the comment box below.

David Beckham wins MLS Title, really wants NBA lockout to end

“As a fan, its’ killing me because I love the game and I love watching these athletes, I think they’re such great athletes. It’s killing me because I love the spectacle of going to the Lakers and watching the guys play.”

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He has everything. Money. Pop star wife. A family. Multiple mansions. Celebrity endorsements. International fame. Over one hundred caps for his country. English Premiership glory. UEFA Championships. And most recently, an MLS Title.

Well, he doesn’t have everything. David Beckham doesn’t have the NBA.

Like you and me, Beckham desperately wants an end to the five month old lockout. The rock star of ‘The Beautiful Game’ is a die-hard hoops fan who wears #23 to honour his idol Michael Jordan.     

Beckham often sits courtside with the other A-list celebs’ at Los Angeles Lakers games. So the impasse between players and owners is frustrating -even for a man who appears to have everything.
