Hill was speaking on a panel local in the Indiana title “The State of Black America: A Discussion with Representatives from Sports & Entertainment. “
Hill added that even if he is in good physical shape, he didn’t know how he would be affected mentally by the events of today.
“e don’t know how this will affect me on the basketball court. I know that, physically, I worked my ass off all this time that I was off. I have not taken a day off since all this hiatus is entered into force. … I am in great physical shape, but mentally, I still have a little more work to do.
“I am paid millions of dollars to go down there and perform at a high level, so part of it is like,” man, you have to suck it up and go down there and do what you’re paid for fair “, but the other part of it is like, ” listen man, this basketball— I like it, it’s part of what makes me me , but this is not everything that makes me, and I have the responsibility, as a young professional athlete black, to advocate for this change.
