WILL GRANT REPLACE MJ AT THE TOP OF THE HILL?

          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).
