Grant Hill retired as a basketball player a few months ago, but he's not done working.
He's a partner in Penta Mezzanine Fund, an Orlando-based private investment firm he co-founded.
He's done some public speaking.
And he's plunged into the world of broadcasting.
"I thought I'd play a lot of golf when I retired, but I've yet to get out there on the golf course," Hill joked.
These days, you'll most likely see Hill in his new role with Turner Sports, a job that includes co-hosting "NBA Inside Stuff" every Saturday on NBA TV.
After playing four years of college basketball and spending 19 seasons in the NBA, he's now the one asking players questions.
But it's a welcome change.
Hill, 41, said he took the broadcasting job because he thought it'd be fun.
He watched "NBA Inside Stuff" during his college years and his NBA playing days. His work with the show and his occasional appearances as an analyst on NBA TV and TNT keep him close to the game he loves.
"I'm a fan of the game," said Hill, who still lives in Isleworth with his wife and their children.
After six seasons with the Detroit Pistons, Hill joined the Magic in Aug. 2000 via a sign-and-trade deal. The Magic paid him almost $93 million over seven seasons.
The Magic brought Hill and Tracy McGrady aboard simultaneously, but those seasons were rough.
Problems with his left ankle limited him to a total of 47 games in his first three seasons with the Magic and forced him to miss the entire 2003-04 season.
"My career is based on a lot of 'what ifs?' " McGrady said. "I look back, and what if we had a healthy Grant Hill? We possibly could've been in contention for a championship."
In all, Hill underwent five surgeries on his ankle, including one for a life-threatening staph infection from a prior surgery.
Fans never saw all the excruciating, solitary work he did to try to return to the court.
"I certainly wanted to play and went through a lot to get back and resume my career," Hill said. "I had a number of my colleagues — Shaq and T-Mac and various people who kind of knew and had seen my ankle. They told me a number of times, 'Why are you trying to still play?' "
But Hill eventually came back and became a productive player again, although most of those productive seasons were spent with the Phoenix Suns.
"I wasn't the same player, but I got great joy and fulfillment from these last 10 years of playing. I'm really just glad and proud that I didn't quit and I kept going," he said.
Still, Magic fans never let him forget his injury-filled tenure with Orlando. The fans booed him every time he played against the Magic in Central Florida.
Magic officials have approached him about possibly being honored in the months ahead as part of the franchise's 25th-anniversary celebration.
The team already has included him in its historic video montage and in some of its signage.
Hill has never complained about the booing he received as a visiting player in Orlando.
"It's passion," he said. "That's a good thing.
"Fans are into their teams and so on. And, so, with regards to my situation, I understood it. I understood what was happening. I understood the circumstances and the perspective of a fan. But the real sort of encouraging thing is, even though I left and things weren't great when I was there when I played or things didn't go according to the script, I still kept a great relationship with people in that organization."
