Grant Hill

What do you think of the new rookie league, so that players can go straight there rather than play college ball?

I think it is bad. I think athletes should go to college to become better ballplayers and to grow as people.


Does Brian Williams help the team?

Yes. He provides an inside presence for us that we haven't had in the last 4 years.


How old were you first slammed a ball?

I was 14.


Do you like professional ball better, or do you wish you were back at Duke?

I like professional better. Duke was great. It was a lot of fun. The whole social/academic environment was fantastic. But my college days are behind me.


Brian Williams seems to have "clicked" with the team offensively. How has he clicked with everyone personality-wise? He seems like a funny guy.

Brian is fitting in well. He is very funny and very much outspoken. Everyone likes him.


Your mom roomed with Hillary Clinton in college. Did you ever hang out with the President?

Yes. I hung out with Bill when he was governor.


What kind of music do you like?

All music except country.


Where do you like to go on the net?

Besides my own site...Duke basketball, Coach K, Fila, Detroit Free Press.


What is your opinion to the Sprewell situation?

I think it is unfortunate that it had to happen. Hopefully people can learn from this and avoid a similar situation.


Your team got to a 2-0 start and now your four games under .500. How do you plan to turn the season around?

Gotta take it one game at a time. The season is a marathon, not a sprint.


Have you been taking any more piano lessons. Do you ever have time to practice? What is your favourite song to play?

No. My favourite song to play is "Jesus is Love" by Lionel Richie. I haven't taken lessons since I was 14.


Lerry Bird seems to have adapted to coaching well. Would you consider coaching after your playing career has ended? Or...would you considering touring as a pianist?

Nope, neither.

After getting married, do you plan on having a family and still playing in the NBA?

Yes.
