Former Spurs player George Hill gives back to city’s frontline heroes during coronavirus pandemic

Although George Hill no longer competes with the San Antonio Spurs anymore, the Milwaukee Bucks player is showing the Alamo City some love during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hill, who was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2008 NBA draft, partnered with Tony Cain, the owner of Bush’s Chicken, to provide meals to those on the front lines in the battle against the spread of the virus.

“(I’m) just here to spread the love,” Hill said in a video posted by Bush’s Chicken. “… They are working long hours, not being able to go out and get lunch … and this is just a way to say thank you for all they are doing.”

This week, Hill and Cain stopped by Baptist Health System to deliver about 100 meals of Bush’s Chicken to the hospital’s employees. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the San Antonio hospital thanked the two for their “generous donation” and for “filling their hearts and tummies.”

Hill and Cain did the same for a San Antonio Police Department station, according to a Facebook post Friday from the San Antonio Police Association.

After being drafted by the Spurs, Hill played for the team until 2011. The Spurs traded Hill to Indiana for the Pacers’ top pick in the 2011 draft, which was Kawhi Leonard.
