George Hill: Jazz Wants Vocal Leadership From Me


On Jazz management giving him (George Hill) a directive to fill a much-needed leadership void:

“Definitely so. They said that’s one thing they wanted more of — a vocal leader here. I think Gordon (Hayward) is a great leader, but he’s more of a lead by example. He’s a very quiet guy, but he works extremely hard and everyone sees that. Everyone feeds off of that, but I’m just trying to bring a different aspect. He’s a lead-by-example-type of a guy. I’m a lead-by-example guy but also vocal because I’m the point guard. You need the point guard to be vocal. That’s my job and that’s all I’m trying to do here.”
