UPDATE: Grant Hill's Response to the "Fab Five" documentary

With the hype and success of ESPN's 30-for-30 documentary on the "Fab Five", it brought up some long suppressed bad blood...especially on how the preppy schools, like Duke, recruited a 'certain type of player."
And as you know the story follows, the players that ended up choosing Michagan did so in protest and to prove a point.

Grant Hill and his father Calvin Hill pose on Duke's campus.

Duting all of that, mean things were said of certain players who did select the clean-cut schools...like Duke...and like Grant Hill.

Well, Grant Hill is speaking out. According to Sports By Brooks :

A source at the NEW YORK TIMES told me late Tuesday that Hill has submitted an editorial to the newspaper to be published this week that will detail his feelings about the aforementioned Michigan team. Included in Hill’s piece is an anecdote about King attending Pistons training camp in 1999.

I’ve been told that Hill notes in the N.Y. Times article that King’s unflattering remark about him was particularly disappointing because he considered King a friend. In fact, Hill reveals in his editorial that he thought so much of King that he repeatedly lobbied then-Pistons GM Rick Sund not to cut the former Wolverine at the end of training camp in ‘99. (Hill’s efforts turned out to be futile, as King was released before the season.)

*Should be good. Well link the story when it posts!

It's a shame. Jalen knew he was wrong when he sent that text to Grant.
