Grant Hill learns about the business side of sports, staying injury free from Feeding the Monster

Ok, fine, that second part isn’t true…but Hill is reading Feeding the Monster because he wants to learn about the business side of sports. Hill hasn’t requested a personalized, signed bookplate…but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t! It makes a great holiday present for your loved ones and in-laws.

    Here are two key things to know about being successful in the business of professional sports.

    1. Make sure your $93 million salary is guaranteed, even if you can’t work.

    2. Actually, there is no second thing. As long as you remember the first one, you’re OK.

    I guess we shouldn’t begrudge him the Magic’s bad business decisions. And he did almost die of a staph infection after one of those ankle operations.

    Seth,
    Please tell me you don’t Google search “Feeding the Monster” every morning! (kidding)

    As a former Blue Devil I am not the most objective source, but I would argue that if Grant Hill had not gotten hurt, he would be Hall of Fame bound. Look at his numbers at Detroit when he was healthy; a ridiculous number of triple-doubles (even when he had to play with Stackhouse). And he is once again a key cog on the Orlando team.

    As a wise man once said to me, “Yeah, and if my aunt had balls, she’d be my uncle.”
