Milwaukee Bucks: Meet the 2010s All-Decade Team – George Hill

While playoff success didn’t come to the Bucks until late in the decade, they featured a number of surprising sixth men throughout the 2010s. For full disclosure, it was a two horse race between veteran guard George Hill and Mike Dunleavy Jr.

Dunleavy eventually lived in Milwaukee long enough to become the villain as he faced the wrath of a second-year forward in Giannis Antetokounmpo during the Bucks’ first round series against the Chicago Bulls in the 2015 NBA Playoffs, With that said, the younger Dunleavy had a very solid two-year stint with the Bucks by averaging 11.2 points per game while hitting 41.6 percent of his threes over that span and a 58.6 true shooting percentage.

But given the gravity of his contributions during the Bucks’ playoff run last season, it’s hard to go with anyone other than Hill here. That’s even keeping in mind the offensive struggles that the veteran floor general experienced for much of the regular season upon arriving in Milwaukee via trade midway through the 2018-19 campaign.

That certainly wasn’t the case by the time Milwaukee entered the postseason and it was Hill’s leading turn and contributions that played a decisive factor in the Bucks reaching the Eastern Conference Finals and getting past both the Detroit Pistons and Boston Celtics with ease. Hill averaged 11.5 points, shot 41.7 from three and totaled a 65.2 true shooting percentage across his 15 playoff appearances last year.

Of course, Milwaukee’s playoff run later ended in disappointment, but Hill’s playoff run wouldn’t be just a one-off. After securing his stay in Milwaukee last offseason by signing a three-year, $29 million, Hill carried over sparkling shooting and efficiency into his first full season with the Bucks this year.

In his 99 appearances with the Bucks to date, Hill averaged 8.2 points on .484/.390/.824 shooting splits, 2.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.8 steals across 20.8 minutes per contest.
