GRANT HILL is one of Doug Collins' favorite topics, which should be of no surprise. The NBA veteran has persevered through much in the 15 seasons since Collins coached him as a rookie, from freak ankle injuries and an even freakier infection, to the trials of his personal life, specifically his wife's 2003 diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. As their top draft pick, Hill was supposed to herald the Pistons into a new championship era and later, was supposed to do the same in Orlando.

The coach has often referred to Hill in glowing terms.

Grant Hill was a heralded NBA rookie when he joined the Detroit Pistons in 1994. The kid from Duke had some solid teammates in Joe Dumars, Allan Houston and Terry Mills. He averaged a nice 19.9 points per game. The Pistons won 28 (count 'em) games. Enter Doug Collins and the turnaround culture. A year later, the Pistons won 46. A year after that, they won 54. After 7 years away from coaching, relaxing in the relative solitude of the TV booth, Collins is back to try to turn around the 76ers.

PHOENIX - When 76ers coach Doug Collins took over as coach of the Detroit Pistons, he had a pretty good idea of what he was getting with second-year forward Grant Hill . Collins' son, Chris, was a teammate of Hill's at Duke, and Collins spent much of his time watching Hill play the point for the Blue Devils. Hill, the No. 3 overall pick in 1994, had been named the rookie of the year - the first Piston to receive that honor since Isiah Thomas won it for the 1981-82 season - and Collins, aware of his versatility, played Hill extensively at the point.

When Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was the coach in Orlando, the Magic and the Detroit Pistons completed a sign-and-trade deal that sent Grant Hill to the Magic for Ben Wallace and Chucky Atkins in August 2000. The Magic planned on pairing Hill, a star, with the emerging Tracy McGrady. But a severe ankle injury that ultimately required surgery limited Hill to just 47 games in his first three seasons in Orlando. Rivers was fired 11 games into the 2002-03 season. On Tuesday before the Celtics played the 76ers, Rivers recalled Hill's struggles as being similar to those the Sixers are going through with injured center Andrew Bynum.

It is in there somewhere, behind the quick smile that the NBA wants to take to the bank, behind the wide eyes that proclaim astonishment over all the fuss everyone is making about him. Somewhere inside Detroit Pistons rookie star Grant Hill, underneath all the humility and good manners and Duke-graduate poise, is something harder and colder. It coalesced years ago, when he first started playing competitive basketball in the Washington, D.C., area, going into places that were unlike his upper-middle-class, suburban neighborhood.

Grant Hill, Alonzo Mourning and Ray Allen - not the Sixers' Allen Iverson - were chosen yesterday to fill the final three roster spots on the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team, the Associated Press reported. The selections were made during a conference call by USA Basketball, the governing body for the national team. Several NBA sources, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity, disclosed the selections. Allen, a fourth-year guard for the Milwaukee Bucks, was selected to fill the team's perceived need for another pure shooter.

After seven long seasons of decrepit 76ers basketball, did you ever imagine that the Sixers could have the best record in the entire Eastern Conference? Even coach Larry Brown conceded that he had never envisioned such a lofty achievement. Yet here they are. Three games into an abbreviated 1999 season, the Sixers have positioned themselves - especially with last night's thrilling 90-86 win over the Detroit Pistons - as a Cinderella story. They clapped their heels, stomped their feet, and pushed themselves from rags-to-riches status - for now, at least.

All-Star forward Grant Hill is expected to miss 3 to 6 weeks after he has surgery for a sports hernia. Hill, the Orlando Magic's second-leading scorer last season, saw several specialists after he was pulled from the lineup Oct. 19. He is due to have surgery next week. "It's better than 3 to 6 months or 3 to 6 years," Hill said. He told reporters earlier that he suffered the lower abdominal injury a few weeks before training camp began Oct. 4. A sports hernia is different from a true hernia.

Four thousand tickets for Friday night's NBA playoff game between the 76ers and the Indiana Pacers went on sale at 10 yesterday morning. They were gone in 20 minutes. "This is by far the hottest ticket we've had in the four years Pat Croce has been our president," Sixers senior vice president Dave Coskey said. "There were people camped out at the First Union Center at 1:30 [Tuesday morning]. I can't tell you how many calls we've gotten from people who wanted to come. " The game is officially sold out. The irrepressible Croce will be there, but he was otherwise occupied yesterday.

GRANT HILL likes watching basketball with a side of "Onions!" Tomorrow, Hill and former La Salle hoops star Bill Raftery will be broadcasting their first Final Four games on television. Raftery, of course, is renowned for his quirky phrases, including "Onions", "Mantoman" and "Send it in, Jerome. " Hill and Raftery will team with Jim Nantz for tomorrow's national semifinals and Monday's title game. "We're just three friends talking about the game," Hill told the Associated Press, "and I don't know if that's how it comes across, but that's how it feels.

TORONTO - Michael Carter-Williams is recognized as the NBA's best rookie but not necessarily for his ability to lead a franchise. Based on the point guard's recent performances, his recognition may widen over time. "He's been a true floor general," said Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young, whose squad will face the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday at FedExForum. In his first career game, Carter-Williams was so good (22 points, 12 assists, 9 steals) that Hall of Famer Magic Johnson instantly named him the rookie of year.

Orlando's J.J. Redick gave the Magic their first lead on a three-pointer with 42 seconds remaining as they shocked the Clippers, 104-101, Saturday in Los Angeles to snap a 10-game skid. The loss, despite Blake Griffin's 30 points, ended the Clippers' 13-game home-winning streak. All-star guard Chris Paul went down holding his right knee with 54 seconds to go but returned after a timeout to hit a 15-footer to draw Los Angeles within one with 33 seconds left. But the Clippers turned the ball over on Jamal Crawford's offensive foul.

FEW THINGS have been sure bets for the 76ers this season. Wednesday in Houston, where they incurred their fifth straight loss, coach Doug Collins trotted out his sixth different starting lineup in 26 games, none of which has included the big offseason acquisition, Andrew Bynum. At times the Sixers have proved to be a very good outside shooting team, other times they've shown why they are called shooters and not makers. Their inside game is practically nonexistent and the defense has ranged from one of the best in the league to one of the worst.

TORONTO - His contributions on the court for most of the season have been minimal, but there may be no player on the 76ers more valuable to coach Doug Collins than veteran Tony Battie. Now in his 14th season out of Texas Tech, Battie has become more mentor than anything else, a steadying voice in the locker room when times are rocky, a butt-kicker when that's called for, too. His actions have not gone unnoticed by Collins. "I've always told Tony Battie that he can be a part of any team I'm ever on," Collins said.
