VS: Your all-around impact was ahead of its time, for someone your size to have all the different skills you had. Is it fair to say Giannis is sort of the next evolutionary step along the path you and LeBron walked on? Hill: There’s some similarities. He’s somebody who just can really have an effect on the game in a number of different ways. As you talk about the evolution of that position, somebody like LeBron was so athletic and so strong, and I think you never saw somebody who looked like a defensive lineman who was powerful and graceful and athletic and skilled and now you’ve got a guy who’s, he’s almost like the next sort of evolution of that position, almost similar like to what Durant was as a scorer—6’11” who can shoot the ball like a shooting guard.

VICE Sports: Do you remember when you first realized Giannis had the potential to be a special force in the NBA? Grant Hill: A few years back you saw the potential. You saw his length, his skill-set, and you felt like “Wow, if he can put it all together he has a chance to really be a force on both ends of the floor.” I think it really, obviously, has accelerated here in the last year and a half. Last year he really emerged as, not just an All-Star, but now the conversation went from “He has a chance to be really good” to “He has a chance to be dominant. He has a chance to be an MVP caliber player.” I think that happened last year and he’s certainly living up to that now with the start to the season.

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club will pay tribute to the outgoing 59th mayor of the City of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, and his work during the game at Philips Arena on Nov. 3 with a ceremonial jersey retirement. To celebrate the partnership the team has enjoyed with the leader throughout his two terms as the city’s chief executive, a custom authentic Hawks jersey will be presented to Reed and placed on permanent display in the arena. The in-game observance will mark the first time that a non-team member has received this type of symbolic recognition from the club. Hawks Vice Chair Grant Hill will offer remarks. “We thought it very appropriate to give Mayor Reed one of our highest honors,” said Steve Koonin, CEO of the Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and Philips Arena. “He has consistently advocated for our team’s work to entertain and unite the city of Atlanta through basketball, helping to make our great city an awesome place to live, work and play. The Hawks are excited to create this enduring symbol of our appreciation and respect for his partnership and all he has accomplished as mayor.”
