Recently retired NBA star Grant Hill, who won two national titles during his four years at Duke University, recently told Bleacher Report why he thinks the Blue Devils are the recipients of so much haterade.
"Cause we had a lot of really good white players," Hill told Reese Waters. "The funny thing is, I played with Bobby Hurley and Christian Laettner. They were despised when we were on the road.
But curiously, "if you look in the crowd, and it was nothing but white students at the games," Hill declared. "It was white-on-white hate. I don't understand that."
Waters somewhat laughed it off, but Hill appeared at least somewhat serious.
"They wouldn't get on me," Hill recalled at away games. "They got on Christian Laettner. They got on Bobby Hurley."
