Interesting article by Paola Boivin today. Most interesting to me:
- Hill chose Phoenix in part because of the fans?
- On a team with less parts than the Suns, Hill averaged 30 minutes and 14 points. Boris Diaw averaged 31 minutes and 10 points.
- Brian Hill said about Grant Hill: He's a calming influence on the floor.
That last one is important to me. We also saw what happens when "non-calmness" reigns on the floor. You get Leandro taking poor shots while Steve is on the bench, Amare and Boris running toward a foul, and lapses on defense that just shouldn't happen. Hopefully the calmness he can bring will help settle the team down and they can play with more sound decisions.
For $1.8 million, I think this was a great pickup.
