Forty-year old Los Angeles Clipper, Grant Hill, is finally thinking about ending his storied career. Hill has only played in 27 games due to a bone bruise on his right knee and has averaged only 3.2 ppg this season. The small forward is on contract for another year after this year, however, Hill believes that this may be his last rodeo.
When Hill was asked just how certain he is about retiring, he replied, “Strong chance. I’m leaning toward it. I want to get to the end of the year and off-season and think about it but I’m pretty confident that’s where my mind is right now. I’ve enjoyed it.”
Hill has always been a starter throughout his career and would likely play far more minutes on another team, however, the veteran small forward has no regrets about joining the Clippers. “That knee injury (bone bruise) set me back a bit in terms of staying healthy and getting in the rotation so that hasn’t been good,” Hill said. “But I wouldn’t change it one bit other than to be hurt early in the year. I like the situation. I like my teammates. We’ve had an up-and-down season. We’ve experienced every emotion you can. We’re still battling for that third spot. We haven’t played well of late but we still have a chance to correct it. We have the ability and the talent to beat anybody. I have no regrets. It’s been a great experience.”
