Here’s something we never thought we’d see: Grant Hill considered leaving Duke before his career really started because he wasn’t sure he was good enough. And where would he have gone?

George he could begin to plot a career in politics.

He’s still considering it.

It’s a pretty weird idea - both the idea that he didn’t understand how good he was and the idea of him getting into politics. He’d probably be successful, but it’s still strange to consider.
