Grant would make a great practice player,and locker room cheerleader.If we can get him for the league minimum,he owes us that.

A revamped Magic team may not have a place for Grant to be a starter. We need Ariza and Reddick on the floor to see what they can develop into. The biggest question is who will come in trade and free agency, I would not turn down Billups or Carter if the deal was right. I am not a big Darko fan and he may be the biggest challenge facing Stan as he takes over the helm.

I hope Grant comes back. He's still got talent, and he's a great teammate. I'd hate to see him play for any other team.

Why are we talking Ariza here? He showed glances at times... just like Nelson did... but is he going to turn into a superstar? With Hill we know we can get 15-20 points a night still.

Why doesn't he just follow Shaq around until he gets a ring? That is what Karl Malone tried to do and failed--unfortunately Gary Payton followed Shaq twice and finally rode his coattails to a ring. That ring must mean so much to Gary Payton--what a putz and now it looks like Grant Hill is about to do the same

Is John Stockton going to be the last loyal, classy player we ever see in the NBA?

I'm glad Grant isn't hanging up his sneakers yet. He's still a very good player.

Finally, it's time for Hill to stand up for us like we did for him for 6 years and numerous ankles. He always said that he'd love to restructure his contract, he never did, or come back for the mid level exception to pay us back. Time for him to live up to his word, we sure as hell did!-r.

I'd really like to see Grant back with the Magic. Class individual and still has one of the best shots in the NBA. Come on Grant ... Orlando has been there for you ... be there for us!

Oh now, he wants to win a championship, does he?
Seems just like yesterday he wanted to just play. Next thing you know, he will want more than the vet's minimum.

Thx for the memories GHill. Did no one notice this young team played better without him to end the season in 06. I would show him the door, its only a matter of time until he breaks down again. If he does decide to come back and they pay him more than league min. someone needs to be fired in mngmnt.

If Grant Hill had any class he would pay the Magic back by signing for the veteran min. and playing for the Magic. He made 92,000,000 for doing nothing!! How about saying Thank You!!!

If he keeps playing, he should play for free for the Magic. Lord knows he owes them at least that much.

Well if he is going to compete for a championship: He needs to sign with Detroit or Cleveland as that will never happen with the Magic!

You got that right: Espically after sitting on the beanch all those years, drawing $20 million or more, doing nothing but complainung about the arena and that he had to go to a rap concert in Jacksonville!

Hey Larry Mundello did you watch the Finals last year? Payton was huge and played rather well in both the Eastern Conference Finals and NBA Finals.

Not to mention I recall him hitting a huge shot to send the game into overtime

He does not owe "you" or the Magic anything. It was their choice to keep him around. He can go work for anyone he chooses to and not look back with any feeling of loyalty to anyone. It happens everyday in the business world. And he does work in the business world. He will go to the highest bidder, wait and see.

Grant Hill owes the Magic big time. We've spent millions of dollars for him to sit out. I understand it wasn't his choice to be injured, but to even consider leaving is a slap in the face of all the Magic fans that have cheered and supported him all these years. I would be really ticked off if he decided to go elsewhere.

The fact that the Magic(and the fans by way of ticket prices) paid him over 18 million a year, so he could ride an exercise bike in the tunnel, makes me think he should finish his career here. Actually, LET some other team pay a premium price for him, we will take Billups AND Vince, and then when his bum knee goes out we will see who has egg all over their face. Grant Hill is a nice guy, but we have put gas in his car for long enough. See ya Grant!

Grant OWES it to the Magic to come back for the MINIMUM and play whatever role the organization sees fit. I think the 90 million and 45 games he played over 7 years justifies that request. The fans always stood by him, even after 5 years in a row of him shutting it down. Grant, your a good guy, now do the right thing.

Grant Hill owes the Magic nothing and the Magic owe Grant nothing, lets just get Vince Carter or Lewis from Seattle and actually have a chance to get out of the first round.
