NBA Star George Hill — No Regrets I Chose Kids Over Team USA

Exclusive 081913_george_hill_launch
NBA star George Hill stands by his decision to ditch the Team USA basketball training camp to attend a kids charity event instead … even if it means he blew his shot to don the red, white and blue.

The Pacers guard shocked the sports world last month, when he bailed on Team USA”s invite-only camp to attend a bball camp for kids in Texas — a move that could cost him any chance of making the team.

So when our photog spotted him in L.A. Sunday, he had to ask — are there any regrets now that he”s had a few weeks to reflect on blowing a HUGE opportunity

He explains, “I probably messed up my chances, but if I can impact one kid”s life … that”s way more important than the USA basketball team.”

So we gotta ask …
