Long-time NBA star Grant Hill, a forward for the Phoenix Suns, has always been known for his pleasant demeanor and off-the-court efforts to help others. In recognition of all his great works, the NBA once again awarded the Joe Dumars Trophy to Grant as the ’09-10 NBA Sportsmanship Award winner. Hill is the first three-time winner of the award, previously earning the distinction in ’04-05 and ’07-08.
However, just because you are a role model and a sportsman of the highest order, doesn’t mean you can’t be a great player – Grant has surely been that – nor does it mean you don’t have a little meanness in you, especially when someone is trying to dunk on you and your team. Check out this amazing block and a little burst of emotion from Mr. Grant Hill.
