(WISH) – Former Pacer, George Hill, is trending for what he posted on Instagram. It’s about his name on the social media site, “Indiana George.”

“For everyone asking me if I should change my name to “UtahGeorge” instead of “IndianaGeorge,” I’m not doing it. “IndianaGeorge” is something I’ve always had even as a Spur and it’s not because of Indiana Pacers, it’s because I’m born and raised in Indiana and that’s what I rep all day. So, for everyone who keeps asking me, I’m not changing it. “I’m “IndianaGeorge” for a reason,” Hill said in an Instagram video.

The video has been viewed nearly 20,000 times.

George Hill was a standout player at Broad Ripple and we on to play at IUPUI.

He played for the Spurs for three years before being traded to the Pacers, where he played five seasons.

Hill was traded to the Utah Jazz this off-season.
