Default Grant Hill (39 years young)



As the lockout came to it's end, one of the biggest things for me was watching another year of this man playing ball.

Last year Grant Hill played 80 games, he missed just 2 games in the last 3 years.

He averaged 13.2 / 4.2 / 2.5 for 30.1 MPG shooting .484 .395 .829

He was the best defensive perimeter player on the Suns and arguably top 10 in the league.

He might be nearing the end of his career but he's not looking nor playing like it.

A solid starter and a competitor on both ends of the court.

He stated many times before that he's just happy to play the game and will keep at it as long as he can.

How many seasons you think he has left? Where and how will his career end?

seems like the suns make everybody healthy, and get them 3pt range. shaq, hill, nash all healthier, hill, dudley, frye, all went from non-3pt shooters, to very good ones.

He's one of the best guys to watch play in the league. Like Kobe or Pierce, he has a complete skillset and an all-round game.

I'd like to hear the backstory on how he got on the HoF committee. Almost seems like an apology for him losing out on what would have been a Hall-worthy career.

Because of the amount of time he's missed, his actual body is probably the equal of a 34-35 year old. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes another 3 years.

Both are extremely skilled and have a high BBall IQ. They don't rely on their body.
