What do you think about the current flopping rule in the NBA?
They need to increase the fines. I’m not sure if NBA players got the message about how distasteful flopping is.
Do you have any predictions for the upcoming NBA season?
Now that Dwight Howard’s free agency has been settled…I don’t think the Rockets will go to the Finals, but will finish as the 2nd or 3rd seed. I think Kevin Durant wins his first MVP this season. And finally….my hometown Pistons will make the playoffs!
Do you have any tips for aspiring sports writers?
Don’t worry about being famous. Worry about being good. Our business boils down to a simple thing: Can you deliver information that people don’t know? Concentrate on reporting and everything else will come.
What was the last movie you saw in a theater?
The Internship with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Think Wedding Crashers, but with Google. And not nearly as funny as Wedding Crashers.
I would personally like to thank Jemele Hill for taking time out of her busy schedule with ESPN to join Sports Unbiased to conduct this Question and Answer session. I wish her continued success with ESPN and in life. I’m sure we will see greater achievements from her soon. On a side note, I think I would win in a 3 game bowling series if we were to ever play 1 on 1. Check out more from Jemele Hill on her ESPN radio show “His and Hers” featuring Michael Smith.
