Anonymous on December 11, 2006 at 3:08 pm taht was great. Grant is my favourite player and I am so happy to see him having such a good year. Wouldn’t it be great if it came down to the pistons and the magic. I would love that so much. The pistons would win of course but it would be great to watch it. It would be grant, darko and Arroyo going up against there old team. Oh I would love to see it happen. I am sure the piston want it to be the heat however on the end. Reply

Grant was always a class act. He made it easier for me to get over the fact that he was a Dukie pretty fast. He also got us a championship by forcing the sign and trade with Orlando. I’m just glad that his ankle finally held up for more than a few games, if I were in his shoes I would have quit years ago.
What was best about this video is that all of the highlights were from the good jersey era. I’ll always associate Grant with the time that management smoked crack and decided that what the Pistons needed were those awful teal and orange numbers. I don’t even like the red alternates we bring out now.

I’m still laughing.
This is the “ERA” when all the “BANDWAGON JUMPERS” were not on the BANDWAGON YET. After the pistons won the ship in 04 , everyone piled onto the bandwagon, just like the Tigers bandwagon fans this year, it was laughable. Maybe everyone will pile on the Lions bandwagon in a few years from now, HAHAHAHAHA
Grant will always be that player with respect. He could have went to Orlando and not said anythign to Joe but instead out of respect he went to Joe adv him on what was going to happen so he could owrk out a sign and trade so we could get Ben and win a ring. It just shows what kind of person he is, he does put himself first not like some other player we all know.
I am sure there were times where grant wanted to quit the game with everything that has happened but he was not ready to give up and now we know why he is having a year like a rookie and I hope he keeps it up. You go grant
For me Grant is like Barry, each played hard and selflessly for terrible teams that never competed. Both very humble as well. I agree, Natalie, the teal jerseys were just another smack in the face as if last place wasn’t humiliating enough.
Awesome, Awesome. I still watch a GHill video every once in awhile I got at Meijer’s while he was playing for the Pistons. The thing I loved about this guy, besides his Joe D type class, was his lack of fear to drive the lane. How many times did he take on Mutombo or Ewing at the rim? Sure, he’d take his licks and get blocked once in awhile, but he’d drive the lane again the very next play. And who can forget the time he leaped from behind over Stoudamire and grabbed his layup out of the air. Thanks for the video Natalie.
In other news, I’m watching MNF here and they just reported that Allen Iverson’s locker was cleaned out. Where or where will he go.
I am sorry but that has to be hard on AI with they way things are ending. I know he asked to be traded but it must have taken alot for him to do that. We all know we wanted to retire a 76er. I think AI is a great player and hate to see this happen it is nothing like Roy but it seem like people are making it out to be. AI will never fit with the pistons but I hope he goes to a good team and things work out for him for the last few year he has left. I also hope that the 76ers do not make the playoffs and they get rid of that coach they have.
ON the Hill note he is a great player and will always be remember as one of the pistons best I wsa sad to see him leave a piston and was a little mad at first but than I seen what we got by him leaving. I wish great well for the rest of his career.
I became a fan during Grant Hill’s rookie season- mainly because of him and his stellar play. It was hard to see him leave and breaking down- he could’ve had a great career. He’ll always be one of my childhood heroes.
by the way, I miss that one in your face dunk against Mourning 😉
Grant will always be a Piston at heart. He was my favorite player when I was younger, I had the biggest crush on him back then.
