I really love Orlando Magic and most of all, I really love Grant Hill. I would hate to see him leave my favorite team. I feel wherever he goes (if he leaves) he will be a great asset to any team. I would miss him, but since I'm his #1 fan, I would continue to follow his career, while cheering my #1 team (the Magics) on.

People act they forgot what Grant Hill is capable of bringing to a team. Hill brings leadership, an explosive game, and most of all a will to win. Me being a diehard Bulls fan, would love to see Hill in Chicago to help the Bulls make it to that next level. My opinion, if Hill retires the NBA loses one of the greats that never had the chance to explode!!!

People shouldnt been mad at Grant for not playing. They should be gratefull for Grant because he finished the contract even it needs to have 6 surgeries.

I love the idea of having Grant again. Dwight + Grant+ Stan + a playmaker/defensive player = championship

I've been a avid fan of my hometown Magic for almost my entire life and I have loved Grant Hill almost as long. However, if he leaves the Magic, I don't think I will ever respect him again. After getting paid for 7 years and only playing for about 1 and a half, I feel as though he owes us and he should sign for the veteran minimum with our team. Agree?

Grant is going to be a good veteran and leader to any team. He instantly can provide 15 or more points a game.
Please come back to Orlando Grant. Orlando stuck it out with you during the hard times, they still need you now. I hope the Magic includes Grant in its championship chase (having Dwight Howard as the centerpiece).

I believe that the Magic will benefit from Grant's departure, We have a veterans salary available that we could use to sign a veteran big men like Joe Smith or Jamaal Magloire that will solidify our big mens poition, then we can go get R. Lewis or Gerald Wallace(1st choice) then try to bring back Deshawn Stevenson that proved this year is worth of getting 3-4 millions a year, Grant Hill is past his prime and no longer fits into the Magic plans, The Magic needs to let their young players develop quickly, More playing time for Grant means less playing time for JJ, lets thihnk about it. Grant is a classic guy but at this time having him in the team will be just delaying young player dvelopment.

Grant doesn't owe us anything. It's a risk every team takes when they sign a player. Don't get me wrong I am the #1 Magic fan, and it would be great to have him back. He brings alot to the team: great offense, great defense, and great leadership for this young team. It's good to have someone on the team that has valuable playoff experience. It would be so sad to see him leave. You are such an amazing player and you are a class act. I hope you stay in Orlando Grant.

Reggie Miller was a class act as well.

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?

Hill is a big, stinky Dukie who seemed comfortable running his yap like he knew anything about even getting to the Finals during the halftime shows. He was so quick to judge the Cavs, but where was the Magic?

Grant Hill is a joke..Are you kidding me?..He STOLE almost 100 Million of the Magics money the past 7 years sitting on the bench and now hes like I want to be in a contender?..are you kidding me?..He should be begging the Orlando Magic to take him back and at a league veteran minimum. Sorry Grant truth is you have not paid your dues and you do not deserve to be on a contender. Your allstar vote last year was a complete joke, due to the fact that there were many forwards more deserving. The Magic need to do the right thing and just let him go. They do not need any more drama after the Donovan incident and Hill really is not worth it. There are younger, healthier guys out there that can be gotten alot cheaper and will work alot harder.

G-Hill should announce that next season is his last and that he'll play pro bono for the Magic. Otherwise, let him sign for any other team that wants him. It's time to dislodge this albatross from around the Magic's neck.

U R such a dumba$$, penny is just as washed up as brian hill, talk about having something left in the tank, he didn't even play for a team at all last year. plus his knee is messed up.

I Keep seeing comments like he's a proven scorer, brings veteran leadership and has playoff experience.
Fact of the matter is Grant Hill NEVER GOT OUT OF THE FIRST ROUND.
He brings nothing to the team that isnt already there. Howard and Nelson have both played more games for Orlando than Hill. So there goes the veteran leadership everyone talks about. Proven scorer? 15ppg is not a proven scorer. its crap for the money he's made.
He's been an absolute bust for Orlando, even when healthy with that paultry 15ppg everyone rave's about. he's given a free pass because he makes nice for the camera's. Meanwhile this same town turned on McGrady and ran him out of town for being on the court and getting sick of having to do everything by himself. Never mind the fact He actually was on the court earning his money, leading the team in scoring and making himself better every year he was here. Apparently, the lack of an art collection was his undoing.

If Grant leaves O-Town I will burn all his B-ball cards. He will recieve no love from the fans that have stuck by him during all his problems. Just him playing the free agent game is insulting to the fans and the whole Magic organization. All would be forgiven if he signed for a reasonable figure (veterans minimum).

As I recall history Grant was induced by the franchise several times to returned from surgery earlier than expected. His injuries deepened and the Magic's impatience paid the price. I know he can walk out and try to be part of a championship contender team after last season's performance...and that is what he should do! Good luck Grant!
As for you fans, get a life and erase as soon as possible Grant and Brian Hill from your lives!

Sign G.Hill for whatever and then trade him ,Nelson,Garrity for Shawn Marion and Phoenix's first rounder.
Do you really think the Suns are that stupid? "Hey, I have a great idea let's trade an all-star and our first round pick for a ham sandwich!" If the Suns made as stupid of a trade as you've suggested their fans would probably burn their arena to the gound! Why not throw in one of our 2nd round picks and get Amare as long as we're at it?
