Position: -
Born: 10/05/72
Height: 6-8 / 2.03
Weight:225 lbs. / 102.1 kg.
Hill currently lives with his wife and two daughters in Orlando. He is a part-owner of the Atlanta Hawks, a real estate investor, an art collector, and a successful broadcaster with Turner Sports. He works out often and is pretty close to his playing weight, although he stays away from running and jumping so he can protect his arthritic ankle. His TV partner, Jim Nantz, persuaded him to take up golf, and Hill now says his wife Tamia, a six-time Grammy nominated singer, is “a golf widow.” Hill is also very involved in politics – he was an early supporter and fundraiser for Andrew Gillum, who just won the Democratic primary in the race for governor of Florida – and he continues to play footsie with the idea of running for office. “I’ve always tried to live my life as if I would run one day,” he says. “I’m not ready now and may never be ready, but I want to keep that option open for down the road.”
Well, fellow Duke basketball alumni and Hall of Famer Grant Hill thinks the young star is on track to end up where Hill will be enshrined Friday — the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. “I think he’s on his way,” Hill told MassLive’s Tom Westerholm. “… He’s in a great situation, which is really good. In some ways you could say it’s a blessing and a curse. Because (the Celtics) are so talented, he doesn’t have to do as much, which is great for a young player, and they have a chance to win a championship, and have a lot of runway for the next five, six, eight years. But also it doesn’t really allow us to see the full package. I think we did see that last year when injuries hit that team, and now it was like they needed him to show and prove, and he did. And he was just a rookie. 19 years old. I think time. Time is what he needs, and I can’t wait to watch and see what he ultimately becomes. It’s scary.”
