The Mayan calendar apparently did not see this coming:

Grant Hill has retired.

In other news: Grant Hill didn't retire back in the late '90s? Huh.

Heck of player who got close while in Phoenix but otherwise never had the good fortune or health to be on a championship team. Best NBA career of any Duke alum but probably a bit short of the HOF.

If that ankle injury in 2000 had put him out of the game entirely, I think he'd be in the HOF; take his whole career into account, though, and I agree with cixelsyd. The only highlight at this point is his longevity, and given that he had four years in the middle of it with less than a season's worth of games total, it's not really even that much of a highlight.
