Grant Hill Joins Hall of Fame Board of Governors

by April 20, 2011

Grant Hill becomes the first active player to ever get such an honor. Reports the Arizona Republic: “Hill will serve a three-year term on a board chaired by Jerry Colangelo, who remains the chairman of the Suns. ‘It is truly an honor to be elected as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Board of Governors and to represent the living history of basketball,’ Hill said in a statement. ‘It is important for the current generation of players to get involved with the Hall to help recognize the greatest in the game who have gone before us.’ The board governs the Hall of Fame and its election process, raises revenue and aims to increase awareness.”
