Grant Hill and his mom, Janet (VP of a business consulting firm and sits on the board of Duke’s business school) apparently loved Family Feud growing up. “It was our favorite show when Grant was a kid. When Grant was maybe from about 8-15 we would sit at dinner together every night and watch. We knew we could win Family Feud if we just had a big enough family. There are only three of us. Grant’s an only child, I’m an only child and Calvin (Grant’s former NFL player father) is an only child. So we kept talking about various friends of our we could expropriate and make them part of our family and win Family Feud.”
Grant and his mom got to make their weird dream come true when they recorded the episode in September with 5 other NBA players and their moms. The episode isn’t run until the week of November 12-16th.
“It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be,” Janet said.
