L.A. Lakers star Jordan Hill -- who has just been charged with choking out his girlfriend -- insists the allegations won't affect his playoff game ... and he'll do everything he can to win another championship.

TMZ broke the story ... Jordan was charged today with felony assault after allegedly choking and bruising his GF back in February in Texas.

But Jordan's not letting the accusations distract him -- releasing a statement, claiming, "I promise to keep my focus and attention on the playoffs during this time and to helping my team win another championship."

He adds, "I'd like to apologize to the Lakers organization and to all of their fans for the untimeliness of these accusations."

Jordan faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

TMZ, you crack me up...

If convicted, so-and-so faces up to blah blah blah in prison. Really now? How many convictions has California actually handed out for stuff like this to "STARS"?

I'm the last person to defend some punk but chances are this is some blonde bitch who wouldn't have looked at this guy twice if he was the cable guy or the techie in a cellphone store. In her case she has to pay for all her $$. Shame on him. Shame on her.

This vicious girlfriend beater should not be allowed to play in any NBA game. He should be suspended NOW.

If he did it, it should torpedo more than a fricking playoff. These *******s think they can do whatever they please. Since he's been charged, he should be suspended until it's settled.

If you play sports well in America, you can kill and get away with it. The fans (sit on juries and they) are morons.
