Personal life[edit]

Granger was raised in a religious household of Jehovah's Witnesses. He credits his upbringing for teaching him respect and helping him "evolve into a man."[33]

Granger's younger brother, Scotty Granger, is a musical artist and songwriter who appeared on a reality TV show titled The One: Making a Music Star on ABC, in the summer of 2006 and in ABC's Wipeout game show in 2008. In 2011, Scotty took part in the singing songwriting competition series Platinum Hit on Bravo finishing third overall in the competition after singing his composition "Beautiful You".[34] He has continued a musical career and starting in 2013, he adopted the artistic name Scotty Grand.[35] Granger is also the great-great-nephew of the "Queen of Gospel", Mahalia Jackson.[36]

Granger is actively involved in the "Dribble to Stop Diabetes" campaign due to his family history with diabetes.[37] During his later portions of his career, Granger had also taken an interest in real estate.[38] On December 17, 2016, it was announced that Granger would be inducted the New Mexico Sports Hall of Fame.[39] Granger is currently a sports analyst involving college basketball for the CBS Sports Network, although he has expressed interest in returning to the NBA in a bench role.[40]

Raised in a religious household by Jehovah's Witnesses, Granger always has held himself to a high personal standard that has separated him from the pack.

"I was taught respect, we weren’t allowed to curse as kids, we were brought up in a really respectful way and that really matters," he said. "I think that helped me coming into my own as I evolved into a man. These days a lot of kids are brought up in the wrong way and luckily my family brought me up the right way."

 

 

Perhaps he's returned to his roots after retirement?
