“Depression is real in the NBA for retired players,” said Grant Hill, a seven-time All-Star who played 19 years in the pros. “It’s the one thing that validates you, and now you don’t have that. The game, this make-believe-world we have been in, consumes you and as a result of that, you don’t necessarily have time to develop other skills for the real world. For me, I’m going to stay busy.” Hills, 43, retired after the 2012-13 season. He is now an NBA and NCAA tournament analyst for TNT, a co-host on NBA TV’s “Inside Stuff,” a minority owner of the Atlanta Hawks and has other business interests.
In sports, the word “rehab” conjures images of casts and crutches, hydrotherapy pools, stationary bikes, resistance bands, ice packs. But reclaiming greatness also requires a resiliency of spirit—a talent that is seldom talked about in a world obsessed with hops and length and killer crossovers. “There’s a fight that’s necessary to be really good,” said Grant Hill, the TNT analyst and former All-Star. “And there’s also a fight necessary to come back from injury. You have to fight it. And it’s just as much a mental challenge as it is a physical one.”
