Many San Antonio Spurs fans were shocked to hear the news the Spurs traded George Hill to the Indiana Pacers for the rights of Kawhi Leonard.
He endeared himself to Spurs fans and even Spurs coach Gregg Popovich referred to Hill as his favorite.
And once the trade was final, a very emotional Hill took to Twitter to send his thanks to San Antonio for their support:
As much as it might pain Spurs fans to see a fan-favorite get traded, Hill will be able to go home to Indiana, take on a larger role with the Pacers, and help make a budding NBA team become stronger.
So Spurs fans, how did you feel once news came out Hill was traded to Indiana?
