Not even a year removed from the NBA, Grant Hill remains a master of his craft.

Speaking by phone with Bleacher Report, Hill discussed everything from his all-time starting five to the importance of player diets to the significance of back-to-backs. He also offered up some thoughts about the league's current one-and-done rule, admitting that more collegiate experience could be necessary.

"I think two years minimum of college would certainly help," Hill, who played four years at Duke University, said. "I don't know if in one year guys kind of fully buy in."

Hill was speaking with Bleacher Report in promotion of the Allstate NABC Good Works Team. He is among the voting panelists who helped decide which nominees were eventually named to the team.

Per a news release, the Good Works Team is a "preeminent community service honor recognizing college basketball players who have made a commitment to improving their communities and the lives of others." 

"That was very, very eye-opening on my part," Hill says of his involvement with the NABC Good Works Team. "It's a good thing. It's a good message."

Still one of the more cerebral athletes out there, Hill had some useful messages of his own, providing plenty of insight into the game he devoted nearly two decades of his life to.
