Grant Hill – Guzzling From The Fountain Of Youth

Posted in Basketball at 7:42 pm by

More than a few times in CSTB’s history, I’ve made reference to the injury plagued career of Suns F Grant Hill, who upon leaving Detroit for Orlando in a August 2000 sign-and-trade seemed like he’d be a Hall of Fame candidate.  Instead, Phoenix’s first-round elimination of Portland last night represented the first playoff series victory in Hill’s 16 year professional career.  Though I’m hopeful that linking to a Suns highlight doesn’t represent tacit approval over recent Arizona legislation (much as I’m hesitant to draw parallels between Hill and Bonnie Raitt), for one day at least, let’s give the former Dookie his due.  5 years ago, there’s no way I thought Hill would still be playing, let alone making such major contributions.
