Grant Hill Loses His Damn Mind!

8 Jul

Grant Hill has always seemed a class act to me.  While injuries stopped him from fulfilling his promise as one of the first “next Jordan’s”, Hill has to be admired for the way he’s battled back.

He actually played a ton of games last year for Phoenix and was an effective member of the Suns’ squad.  At an advanced age and having made a bunch of money in his career, you’d think the last motivation left for Grant Hill would be a championship.

And you’d be wrong.

Rumors are swirling that Hill is going to sign with the New York Knicks.

Why???

Even if everything breaks the Knicks’ way, LeBron won’t even be in Manhattan for another year.  By then the brittle Hill will be one year closer to 40.  How much will he have left?

And has he looked at the Knicks’ roster recently?  That team is more than a LeBron James and old version of Grant Hill away from a title.

Apparently, the Celtics are in the Hill chase too.   Here’s hoping Grant Hill regains his sanity long enough to sign on with Garnett and the gang.

Playing in Boston would give him a much better chance to go out a champion.  And not even Michael Jordan did that….

    I’m not sure why you kept mentioning Jordan, but you’re right he should go somewhere that has a good squad already in place… Maybe even San Antonio… check out our blog http://doin-work.com

    Thanks for checking out my blog & I’ll check yours out.

    On Jordan – I opened and closed with him. Here’s why. When Grant Hill started his pro career people compared him to Jordan and referred to him as the “next Jordan”.

    Injuries didn’t allow Hill to get to a Jordan-esque level. But wouldn’t it be nice if this class act could go out winning a title in his last year, something even Michael Jordan couldn’t do?

    Hope that makes it clearer.

    And thanks again. Appreciate your taking time to comment.

    Ok, that makes sense! I guess I didn’t quite catch where you were going with it!
