Grant Hill

  1. Grant Hill likes Phoenix but keeping his free agent options open

    Mar 30, 2011, 12:06 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is nearing retirement — and if there is one thing you can find plenty of in Phoenix it’s retirees. Warm, dry weather is easy on the joints, you know. Plus, lots of places you can have dinner at 5 and still make it home for Jeopardy. Hill will be a free agent at…

  2. Coach K stirs up Duke vs. Fab 5 issue again. Ugh.

    Mar 29, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Grant Hill and Jalen Rose hugged it out. Or talked it out. Or tweeted it out. So finally we can put this whole Fab 5 vs. Duke thing to bed…. Then here comes Mike Krzyzewski. Like your grandfather that just heard about this Lady Gaga person and wants to tell you she can’t sing, he…

  3. Jalen Rose and Grant Hill bury the hatchet

    Mar 27, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    After the controversy surrounding Jalen Rose’s comments about Grant Hill in the Fab Five documentary for ESPN (along with Jimmy King’s comments about Hill being a female dog), it would appear things are on their back to recovery for the two’s friendship. Hill tweeted on Saturday: Had a great talk with @jalenrose today. We remain…

  4. Jalen Rose responds, says Duke comments taken out of context

    Mar 21, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    17th Annual ESPY Awards - Red Carpet

    When Jalen Rose was 17 and making one of the biggest decisions of his life — where to attend college — the inner city Detroit kid didn’t want to go to Duke because he didn’t see that as a place he fit in. In ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary on Rose and Michigan’s Fab Five,…

  5. Grant Hill fires back at Fab Five

    Mar 16, 2011, 4:33 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Jalen Rose and Grant Hill came from very different places. Still do. In the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary about Michian’s Fab Five, Jalen Rose (a member of that team and current ESPN NBA analyst) said this about Duke and Grant Hill (now of the Phoenix Suns). “Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me.…

  6. Grant Hill leaves game with “minor” knee sprain

    Grant Hill limped off the court in the first half of the Suns game against the Cavaliers Sunday for what is being described by the team as a “mild” knee sprain. He collided with Manny Harris while going after a long outlet pass and is not returning to this game. Smart money would have him…

  7. Vince Carter expected to debut for Suns Wednesday

    Dec 29, 2010, 11:23 AM EDT

    Vince Carter,

    Steve Nash tweeted Tuesday night he was excited about Vince Carter‘s entry into the Phoenix lineup. It’s gonna be fun. He can do things no one on our team can do and will improve us The fun starts Wednesday night — Carter will make his debut for the Suns against the Philadelphia 76ers, coach Alvin…

  8. No surgery for Vince Carter, just rest and rehab

    Dec 22, 2010, 10:56 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_Carter.jpg for post 211

    Vince Carter’s knee still isn’t good, but it isn’t so bad as to need surgery either. That’s the good news from the doctors in Phoenix who looked at an MRI and decided what Carter needs is some rest and rehab, according to a tweet from Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Having his knee scoped…

  9. Alvin Gentry lets his bench know Steve Nash needs some rest

    Nov 26, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Hello Goran Dragic. We’re looking right at you. Steve Nash has averaged 34.8 minutes per game this season, which is up two minutes a game from last season. The man is 36, has groin and foot soreness this season, and has been battling a bad back since, roughly, 1978. Nash needs to be playing fewer…

  10. Grant Hill and Reggie Evans in the worst ejection ever

    Oct 7, 2010, 10:26 AM EDT

    Image (1) referee_kennedy-thumb-250x375-22275.jpg for post 6332

    Grant Hill and Reggie Evans got ejected from a preseason game last night for patting each other on the butt. Seriously. It may be the worst ejection we can remember in the NBA. Referee Bill Kennedy is in mid-season overreaction form. It happened while the Raptors were blowing the Suns out of the building Wednesday…

  11. Steve Nash says all the right things about taking on a challenge

    Aug 27, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash knew when he signed an extension with the Phoenix Suns last summer — two years, $22 million, taking him up to the summer of 2012 — that it might not happen. He didn’t chase the ring, he didn’t go to New York, he took the money from a franchise he loves. So while…

  12. Winderman: After the big name free agents, what will be left for everyone else?

    Jun 9, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

    Amid Game 3 of the NBA Finals and Izzo-gate in Cleveland, two small but telling stories fell somewhat through the cracks Tuesday. In Phoenix, amid Amare Stoudemire’s garish grab for a six-year, $134 million free-agent contract, Grant Hill exercised his $3.3 million option to return to the Suns next season. And in Atlanta, Mo Evans…

  13. NBA Finals, Lakers Suns Game 6: When the going got tough, Kobe got going

    May 30, 2010, 12:13 AM EDT

    When asked “Kobe or LeBron?” my answer the last year has been “LeBron for the first 42 minutes of the game, Kobe for the last six.” Saturday night is exactly why. Kobe is the best closer in the NBA. Kobe is better at making tough shots than anyone in the NBA. Kobe thrives in pressure…

  14. NBA Playoffs Suns Lakers Game 6: Is everything else for the Suns gravy?

    May 29, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    The Suns take the floor tonight for Game 6 versus the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers an underdog. They are considered out-sized, out-talented, and outmatched. But the Suns have shown resiliency in this series, coming back from a dour 0-2 deficit to even the series, then pushing the Lakers to the very wire. The Lakers…

  15. Grant Hill: Doug Collins could make the Sixers a playoff team next year

    May 24, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Grant Hill has been around a long time and played for a lot of coaches. While Mike Breen and the ESPN crew make it sound like he was old enough to play for Red Auerbach, he’s not been around quite that long. But he has been around long enough to play for Doug Collins in…

  16. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 3: The Phoenix starters came up big on a rare off-night for the heralded reserves

    May 24, 2010, 2:13 AM EDT

    The Suns’ reserves have been the heart and soul of Phoenix’s extended playoff run. Goran Dragic, Leandro Barbosa, Channing Frye, Jared Dudley, and Louis Amundson have each had their moment in the spotlight, with their collective shooting, energy, savvy, and synergy making all the difference for the Suns in these playoffs. That wasn’t exactly the…

  17. NBA Playoffs Lakers Suns Game 3: Lakers will find Suns much hotter in Phoenix

    May 21, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns are not going to get well against the Lakers. Not this series, the Lakers are going to win it. Phoenix is not going to be able to do the one thing it needs to counter the Lakers — grow three or four inches a man. But like taking a cold medication, for…

  18. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 2: Dazed and confused Suns try to figure out what's next

    May 20, 2010, 1:30 AM EDT

    The Suns played straight up man-to-man. They mixed in some zone. They tried to front Pau Gasol in the post. They played behind him. They tried to double team Kobe, both aggressively and once he picked up his dribble. They tried every defensive gimmick in the book — and the Lakers scored 124 points on…

  19. NBA Playoffs, Lakers v. Suns Game 1: Everything's coming up Lakers

    May 18, 2010, 12:02 AM EDT

    Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals made one thing abundantly clear: unless the Suns are able to come up with some truly remarkable performances, the Lakers will win this series. L.A. is so talented and so long that they’ll receive the benefit of the doubt in almost every regard, and barring a transcendent performance…

  20. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 1: Kobe is hurt, Grant Hill is old. One will key a win tonight

    May 17, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    Through the years, the one constant in the Lakers/Suns battles is that the Suns never really stopped Kobe Bryant. Raja Bell did a respectable job, but those were the days Kobe had to keep gunning because his other options were pass to Smush Parker or pass to Kwame Brown. Better to shoot over the triple…

  21. What do the Knicks have to lure LeBron? New York City

    May 17, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    Clippers fans are throwing a quaint little parade. Bulls fans are acting like frontrunners. Cavaliers fans are FREAKING OUT. The Knicks? They are ready to make a pitch to LeBron James using the best selling point they have: New York City. The stars, the glamour, the fast paced life, all of it. Living the perfect…

  22. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs: The incredible, invisible Antonio McDyess

    May 10, 2010, 1:26 PM EDT

    What’s so remarkable about the playoffs is how quickly things can change for any one team. The Suns, who at one point struggled to keep pace with the injury-riddled Blazers, now look like a dominant playoff team. The nature of playoff match-ups change everything. Players, strategies, and specific styles can expose weaknesses in opponents or…

  23. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 4: The deed is done.

    May 10, 2010, 1:15 AM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. The Phoenix Suns just swept the San Antonio Spurs. Maybe if I type that phrase enough times, the basketball gods will tie my precious typing fingers into knots for my blasphemy. In what universe could the Suns…

  24. Grant Hill will be back with the Suns next year. Did you know he is old?

    May 7, 2010, 7:13 PM EDT

    Grant Hill thinks it’s pretty funny that there seems to be a law requiring announcers to say his age every time they say his name. “It’s 37-year-old Grant Hill with the three.” “Look at how Grant Hill fill the lane on the break at age 37.” “Look at Grant Hill, still able to take a…

  25. NBA Playoffs, Suns v. Spurs Game 2: Ignore the shiny superstars, this one's about the reserves

    May 6, 2010, 12:34 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan had 29 points and 10 boards, the Spurs had an effective field goal percentage of 55.1%, and George Hill and Richard Jefferson combined for 32 points (including a 18-10 double-double). It just wasn’t enough. San Antonio made runs and they pressed Phoenix repeatedly, but every lineup the Suns put on the floor had…
