Grant Hill Doesn’t Give a Damn About a Title

Grant Hill really doesn't care about winning a championship. That's how I interpret the latest news surrounding the free-agent forward (via Mark Murphy – Boston Herald): The Celtics’ obvious edge over the Knicks and Suns – their chances of winning another NBA title – may not play a deciding factor in the chase for Hill,...
