Looking To Write A Final Chapter In Phoenix

November 30, 2007

Quickly becoming a fan favorite because of his ability in the post, Suns forward Grant Hill recently proved again that he is equally savvy in print after his appearance in the November/December issue of Post PHX magazine. The NBA veteran, who signed with the Suns during the offseason, not only discusses his transition to a new team filled with new personalities, but he and his family’s transition to the city of Phoenix as a whole.

“We like it,” said Hill in the article. “It’s a little weird waking up at 9 or 10 on a Sunday morning and watching football, but we’re getting used to that. I’ve spent my whole life living in the East Coast and my family is from there, so communicating with friends and family back home is a little different. We had to get used to the early calls, but we like it. We like it a lot. There’s a different vibe here, and people are friendly and we’re really enjoying the transition.”

Referred to as a Renaissance man in the story, the All-Star also discusses his collection of African-American art, life as both a father and husband and even politics. But of course no discussion with Hill can be complete without talk about the one goal he has yet to accomplish.

“I want to win (a championship),” Hill added. “I’ve been an All-Star, had my own shoe developed, had commercials, been on a gold medal team, played in championships in college… The only thing left for me is to win an NBA Championship, and I really feel like I have a great chance here.”
