Grant Hill goes in - Page 5

post #61 of 76
Did Harriet Beecher Stowe have Uncle Tom go on a murderous rampage or something in a later book? I thought he was a fine fellow. Now he's treated like A. Dolph Hillter.

Seriously, I have no idea what you're trying to say here.

Jimmy King, Ray Jackson, and Juwan Howard all graduated in 4 years even though Howard left school a year early to go play in the NBA. And, Jalen Rose left a year early as well, but later got his degree awhile back.

Some have complained that the documentary didn't offer interviews with Hill or Laettner to rebut the Fab Five's comments.

But the filmmakers did one better. They simply showed footage of Hill and Laettner kicking the FF's ass on the court immediately after the bitch, pussy, Uncle Tom comments.

Grant Hill was better than anyone in the Fab 5. Too bad his career was hurt by all those injuries. He made 7 All Star teams in a row when he played for the Pistons and won a NCAA championship as well.

Man, it must have hurt you to type that.

He's a great guy and who knows what he could have done w/o the injuries but Chris Webber probably had a better pro carreer. Hill put up some inflated numbers on a bad Detroit team. I don't recall exactly but I think he's 0-6 in playoff series and Detroit actually starting doing better after he left.

I think Juwan Howard probably has enough $$ from his 15+ year (and still going) nba career not have to work again once he retires... plus he has his degree (got it on time too despite leaving early for the nba)


(I'm assuming Kunk meant rose and webber as his 2/5)

eh to fair IIRC he kinda had a so-so detroit team when he was there and the players they got in the trade for him performed pretty well for Detoit (wallace was I think a 2 time defensive player of the year). He definitely had no where near the talent Webber had w/ the kings.
Also his last season in Detoit (and last pre-injury) had been his best so far and he looked to be still improving... I mean I don't agree with the MJ comparison, but a healthy Hill would've been a lock for the HOF.

Quote:
After the first six seasons of his career, before his ankle injury, Hill had a total of 9,393 points, 3,417 rebounds and 2,720 assists. Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, and LeBron James are the only three players in league history to eclipse these numbers after their first six seasons

Juwan might be the richest of the bunch. At one point David Falk was negotiating better contracts for him than Webber (in his $-making prime). And he's still collecting money as a player. Also he hasn't aged a day in the face which is the ultimate sign of wealth

I don't get it. I thought Jalen Rose showed great courage to admit that he used to have jealous and ignorant viewpoints when he was a teenager. Methinks Grant completely missed the point.

Yep, but it is understandable why he did.

Can we please drop this.

I assume everyone in here understands the english language and how the word "felt" is the PAST TENSE of the word "feel". As in, "I FELT Duke recruted players that were Uncle Toms." As, thats how Jalen, as a 17 year old teenager felt at that time. Not how he feels now.

Jason Whitlock, Jim Nantz, Grant Hill, and now Coach K needs to let this go.

Fab Five forever, Duke is still a bunch of soft bitches and over rated P*ssies
