When superstar have their career derailed by injuries they tend to fade into the sunset or fail to adapt to a new role. Grant Hill is one of the rare exceptions and it is one of the reasons there is still a market for his game. That is why it is nice to see a young player on his new team, first year player Trey Thompikins, show deference to a guy 17 years his senior.

It is not uncommon for guys to buy their number on their new team, and I dont know if Hill slipped him a signed 8×10 of Tamia to make the switch, but its nice that Hill would acknowledge the switch as a loan. Considering all the debate about old guys vs new guys, its nice to see a rookie respect the game and the guys who played it before him.

Both guys will have to update their twitter.com backgrounds. Thompkins will be wearing #9 after asking his followers to help him decide.
