Box Scores Were Unkind to Grant Hill on April Fool’s Day

This is great: “You know it’s April Fools Day when Grant Hill shows up in the Warriors’ box score. Twice. These pages might be changed by the time you read this, but for a while: NBA.com gave G. Hill a DNP – OLD AGE/LACK OF TALENT. Yahoo gave him 23 points on 10-of-13 shooting (Hill’s actual line from the Suns win over the Rockets on Wednesday).”

UPDATE: Bright Side of the Sun unveils how the mistake occurred.

    ….and to those who boooed Danilo Gallinari, now what’s your opinion…you suckaz

  • Roberto

    Didn’t they do this to Robert Horry a few years back? Once…funny, twice…ehhh, three times…find a new joke. Here’s to hoping they don’t do it again.

    pretty funny

    even though they did it before, I still think it’s funny.

    I think they tried to do something like this to Eddy Curry, but realized he doesn’t play to begin with…

    That’s hilarious. Thing is, I wish the score was an April Fools’ joke.

    Moose, any better who didn’t take the “over” on the +/- for that game won’t be a better for long. It’s a guaranteed recipe for 300 points every time.

    hill is amazing, heres to hoping they make the playoffs.

    SLAM muted me. Great.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    on that one post at least.

  • chris

    hes been one of the best players on the suns this year. Hes the only player to play all the games so far. I hope they can resign him

    He balled it up last night, that’s all I’m saying. Without him last night, they get murdered by the Rockets because of their lack of defense. His offense gave them breathing room.

    @ Tano ==> Are you trying to say that DanGal is the next Grant Hill? I’m thinking he’s probably more like the next Frederic Weiss.

  • DJR

    NBA.com should’ve taken this to the next level and gone off the charts: Shaq goes 17-17 from the line; Kobe gets 20 assists; Lebron gets a quadruple-double; Detroit lose by 40 and Sheed doesn’t get T’d up; Yao gets 8 steals; Nate gets 12 blocks; A. Iverson – DNP – Thought It Was Practise; G. Arenas, A. Jamison and C. Butler all play more than 30min in the same game…the list could go on…suggestions anyone???

    Good afternoon, Happy April Fool’s Day!

    Three Englishmen were in a bar and spotted an Irishman. So, one of the Englishmen walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder, and said, “Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was a drunken loser.”
    “Oh really, hmm, didn’t know that.”
    Puzzled, the Englishman walked back to his buddies. “I told him St. Patrick was a loser, and he didn’t care.”
    The second Englishman remarked, “You just don’t know how to set him off… watch and learn.” So, the second Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, “Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was lying, cheating, idiotic, low-life scum!”
    “Oh really, hmm, didn’t know that.”
    Shocked beyond belief, the Englishman went back to his buddies. “You’re right. He’s unshakable!”
    The third Englishman remarked, “Boys, I’ll really tick him off… just watch.” So the third Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, “I hear St. Patrick was an Englishman!”
    “Yeah, that’s what your buddies were trying to tell me.”
    A visitor from Holland was chatting with his American friend and was jokingly explaining about the red, white and blue in the Netherlands flag.
    “Our flag symbolizes our taxes,” he said. “We get red when we talk about them, white when we get our tax bill, and blue after we pay them.”
    “That’s the same with us,” the American said, “only we see stars, too.”

    Happy April Fool’s Day!
