Default Has Grant Hill Figured it Out: All-Star?

It appears that he is starting to fit into the offense very well. He even went on record and stated that he finally has his Phoenix Sun legs.

Do you think he will continue the trend? Maybe become an All-Star once again?

He will continue his trend of missing 30+ games.

He'll probably be an All-Star in the West this season. The forwards are weak, not as much competition as years past. Dirk, Melo, Boozer, that's it.

An all-star? No. I don't think he'll be an all-star again, but I do think he's starting to figure out how he can be most effective for this team.

The coaching staff has told him they want him to shoot 3's. The problem I have with that is that you're trying to teach an old dog new tricks. The first few games into the season, he was parked at the 3 point line constantly, and he wasn't playing to his strengths, which is shooting the mid-range shot, and slashing to the hoop.

It's no surprise that Grant's numbers have been better as he's looked to work inside first, and then make his way outside. He's been slashing to the hoop, and he hasn't been settling for 3's everytime down the court. He'll be much more valuable to the team if he plays the way he normally plays first....then maybe sprinkle in a 3 here and there.

duncan?

if he is listed as a C this year it would force either yao or himself to the bench, and both deserve to start.

I think this had a big thing to do with the emergence of Grant Hill. He is taking away a lot of points from both Marion and Amare.

Figure out? This is the third season he's been "back." Looks like he figured out how to piggy back with a loaded team that has a ton of posessions. He doesn't look much different to me, except that dunk I saw him throw down last night.

I don't think Hill is even the best forward on his team.
