#86 – Grant Hill

The Life of Dad Show - Episode 86 - Grant Hill

Tommy Riles and Art Eddy chat about how the movie Frozen has taken over each of their households, what funny games they play with their kids, Art as the element of water, and his sneaker collection. The guys also have the great pleasure to have former Duke and NBA great Grant Hill on this week’s episode.

If you are a fan of the game of basketball than you are probably a fan of Grant Hill. From his college days at Duke University to his time in the NBA, Hill always gave it his all on the court. If you don’t believe just look at some of his accolades. In college he was a two time NCAA champion, the ACC Player of the Year, and NABC Defensive Player of the Year.

In the NBA Hill made his presence known right away by winning the NBA Co-Rookie of the Year award. He was a seven time NBA All-Star and was part of the All-NBA First Team in 1997.

Besides his great body of work on the court, Grant has helped just as much off the court with community service. Hill has been working with the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and Allstate to promote the 2014 Allstate NABC Good Works Team. This is a team made up of 10 college basketball players who have been recognized for their community service and work off the court. Hill is a member of the voting panel with other former student-athletes, coaches and media members to select the team.

Grant was able to chat about the NABC Good Works Team program, basketball, fatherhood, and his signature sneakers.
