Grant Hill: “I’m not surprised that someone has come out. I’m very happy for Jason. I think it’s probably got to be liberating. He’s got to be able to feel free to get that out and not have to hide it for as long as he has. I think it will be interesting to see the response, if [Collins] wants to continue to play. I hope he does play, if he still wants to. It took a lot of courage and it’s very brave and I’m happy for him.” NBA.com

Grant Hill, a seven-time All-Star, gave Chris Paul's son, Little Chris, a dunking lesson. Hill stuck out his arms and pretended to be a hoop. "I want the dunk, I want you to hang on it, and I want you to run backward with your swag, all right," Hill said to Paul's son. Little Chris proceeded to jump onto Hill's arms as though he were jamming a ball, then he ran around the locker room showing off some dance moves and stutter steps. Los Angeles Times

The Orlando Magic are one of the youngest franchises in the NBA, which is a little hard to believe. They've made the NBA Finals twice, and featured some of the best and most iconic players of the past three decades: Shaquille O'Neal, Penny Hardaway, Grant Hill, Tracy McGrady, and Dwight Howard. And yet, the team is only coming up on its 25th anniversary next season. With that in mind, the Magic have unveiled a new logo to commemorate a quarter century of basketball. "This new look provides us an opportunity to reflect on where we've been and look forward to where we are headed," team CEO Alex Martins said in a press release. "Our silver season logo signifies the history we are creating each day—every game, every play, every moment really is history in the making." USA Today Sports

Hill had not played since logging 14 minutes on Mar. 30 against Houston and in an odd twist almost worked too hard in Memphis to stay ready. “I was a little worried because this morning, before the game, we went hard 4-on-4 here at the arena,” Hill said. “Me, Chauncey [Billups], Maalik [Wayns], DaJuan [Summers], Ronny [Turiaf], we played a few games up and down. And before the game I went pretty hard, so when they told me at halftime [that I was going to play], I was like, ‘My legs are kind of heavy.’” NBA.com

Hill gave every indication to me that he'll retire after the season, his first with the Los Angeles Clippers and 18th in the NBA. "I'm 40 — come on," he said. Orlando Sentinel

Fittingly, cruelly, in his final season, Grant has had to overcome two knee surgeries, having played just 14 games for the Clippers. He doesn't buy the notion that his body was preserved sitting out most of his seven seasons wearing Magic colors. "Doesn't matter. Forty is still 40," he said. Orlando Sentinel

Hunter said he received 102 text messages after he became interim coach. Texters included one of his ex-coaches, Larry Brown, as well as former teammates Rip Hamilton, Rasheed Wallace and Grant Hill. He also talked to Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson, both former point guards who landed coaching jobs without experience. "He's a guy who doesn't think he knows all of the answers," Jackson said. "He loves the game. He has been around some great minds. He is going to be just fine. I think it's great that he has the opportunity." Yahoo! Sports
