I'm Christian, a Certified Public Accountant from Philippines and a very huge fan of Grant "Gravity" Hill and this is my first fan post, yeah... haha And it makes me nervous.
I'm just worried about Grant Hill's future, the fact that he is too old (NBA standard) gives me anxiety. I still wanted to watch his sick moves, his blocks, his dunks, all. But after next season he might retire, and it will make my relatives , my friends, and my officemates sad. By the way he still has a huge followers here in our country. I want him to reach his 1000th game in the NBA, currently he played 868 games in 15 seasons, 132 games short and probably 2 seasons are needed to accomplished that. So he badly needed to continue playing for the next two season if he wanted to reach the milestone. The question next season(2011-12) is, Is there any team who will be interested on a 39 yr old vet?
this is his career stat
Last season he registered his career low in points, but some intangible can't be seen on stats, and I can say that 2009-10 is the best year of Grant Hill as a SUN. And I'm sure if he is a free agent this summer a lot of teams will be coming for him, maybe the lakers, the celtics, the heat, all contenders.
But things may change, maybe next season he won't play that great and teams might not be interested on the 39 yr old vet, and he just might RETIRE.
But as a fan of Hill I am wishing that a team will sign him and let him play valuable minutes, and it will be sweeter if he will retire as a PISTON, and his last basket will be a dunk.
... or maybe a SUN, but please not as a MAGIC.
