As the seven-time NBA All Star, CBS Sports Broadcaster and Vice Chair for the Atlanta Hawks tells it, “I went through a period prior to 2007, where I couldn’t stay healthy…to all of a sudden, for six years in my late 30’s, not only was I healthy, but I didn’t miss games. I was considered an iron man.” Yet despite that personal and professional success of overcoming injury, Grant Hill was forever changed by the time he spent held back by it. He discusses what he learned as he struggled to overcome both the physical and mental obstacles of pushing for optimal performance and, for at least a period, failing. Hill believes that physical recovery always comes first before the mental and emotional. And that feeling good and healthy affects everything you do, ultimately leading to a better quality of life.
Grant Hill is one of the most accomplished NBA and college players of his generation. Hill was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame as a member of the 2018 class. The seven-time NBA All-Star and two-time NCAA Champion has made the successful transition from 19 years as a professional athlete to leadership in business along with several television broadcasting roles.
