He said he feels like he can play another four or five seasons until he is 36 or 37, especially after Hill told him he thought his career was over before the Suns staff helped him play until he was 40. It will all depend on his knee. “That’s basically what it all comes down to in the NBA,” Granger said. “Everybody can play. It’s just a matter of how healthy are you going to be, how long does your body let you do it?”

Granger had an extensive conversation with former Suns player Grant Hill about what the Suns staff, led by head athletic trainer Aaron Nelson, did to help lengthen his career and those of Steve Nash, Shaquille O’Neal, Amar’e Stoudemire and Antonio McDyess. “They just take a different approach,” Granger said. “They kind of break your body down into three stages and start from the bottom. They want you to get your base or your foundation a lot stronger than what it is. That’s the preliminary phase before you even begin to think about strengthening. Get the right muscles firing. It’s a different approach but it works. Working on my flexibility. Working on the mobility in my knee. Getting my certain muscles to activate and shut other ones off. It’s a cool process, actually.”

Hill didn’t immediately return an e-mail seeking comment. Sal Galatioto, founder of Galatioto Sports Partners, declined to comment.

Then there’s that selfishness argument. “Kobe, he did it, but I think his instinct was to go to himself,” said seven-time All-Star Grant Hill, now an analyst for NBATV. “And he was extremely successful. Jordan was more inside, more physical, more around the basket even as he got older. … Kobe tended to take and make tougher shots. He would take a lot of shots that you’d say, ‘That’s just a bad shot.’ But he made them. Whereas I always felt like Jordan got what he wanted.”

Now, he wishes he had listened to himself. “I wish I had sat down in 2000, when it first was giving me problems,” he said. “I think about that all the time. It’s not about discomfort and pain now, though I’ve got an arthritic condition in the ankle. It’s just sort of regret that what could have maybe been. If I could have gotten better advice, or gone to another doctor, or just trusted my gut. The thing I learned through this whole process is just because somebody’s a doctor or an expert, it doesn’t mean they’re right. When they say they’re ‘practicing’ medicine, they’re really practicing medicine.”
