WEDNESDAY WEB SITES OF THE WEEK
Published May 8, 1996
The "Grant Hill Home Page Presented by Fila" offers enough information about the Pistons young superstar to satisfy even the most dedicated Hill fan. Designed to be both informative and interactive, the site is broken into five distinct sections. "Stats and Facts" reviews Hill's career since high school, noting his records, achievements and feats along the way. "Grant on the Net" catalogs his own "hot spots" on the web and provides a springboard to those sites (Fila, The Detroit News, The Palace at Auburn Hills and Duke home pages are prominent). "What's New" offers the opportunity to join "Grant Hill Insiders" and receive e-mails "right from Grant." It also reprints feature articles on Hill and provides a copy of a newsletter highlighting his endorsement deals and upcoming commercials. Hill's general likes, dislikes and memorable moments are listed in "Q & A." Viewers are in turn encouraged to submit thier own questions to Hill, for which answers will be displayed at a later date. A "Fila" section is still under construction. The site, found at http://www.granthill.com, is managed by Advantage International (THE DAILY).
