WILL GRANT REPLACE MJ AT THE TOP OF THE HILL?
Published October 27, 1997
Pistons F GRANT HILL was profiled by Curry Kirkpatrick in Sunday's N.Y. TIMES MAGAZINE under the header "Excuse Me While I Dominate." Kirkpatrick: [P]ro basketball is ready for Hill to take over the game. But is he ready?" Hill: "My basketball personality has changed. I came into last season wanting to send a message to my teammates, to the whole league. I'm for real. I mean business. I think I can be the best player in the N.B.A., and I want to show it." Hill, on becoming a superstar: "Going out as a celebrity and V.I.P. was a novelty at first, fun, exciting. Now it's like every time I leave the house, I feel like I'm running for office. If I want to dance, I'll do it in front of a mirror or something." Fila Senior VP Howe Burch, who signed Hill to a recent contract extension: "Grant probably will determine the destiny of our company" (N.Y. TIMES MAGAZINE, 10/26).
