Grant Hill All Class In Response To Jalen Rose's 'Fab Five' ESPN Documentary Insults

Everything about Grant Hill screams class and demands respect. It's no surprise then, that he choose to respond to Jalen Rose's "Fab Five" documentary insults in a well-reasoned manner.

Hill didn't fire off mad Tweets or give an interview while angry and understandably upset at being called an "Uncle Tom" by Rose in the ESPN show.

Think what you want about Duke, who for many sports fans have become the Yankees of college basketball, but you have to admire everything about Grant Hill's career.

His class in the face of insult is just another example of what's made Grant the kind of guy his coach, Alvin Gentry, once said was the model of the type of man he wished his daughter would marry. I am privileged to know Grant on at least a professional level and couldn't agree more.

To hint that those who grew up in a household with a mother and father are somehow less black than those who did not is beyond ridiculous.
