For Old Time’s Sake: Grant Hill
Believe it or not, Grant Hill used to be the “next MJ.” Drafted by the Pistons in ’94, one of the nastiest draft classes in history, Hill was an assassin from day 1. He started in the All Star Game and shared ROY honors in ’95 with Jason Kidd after putting up this stat line : 20 pts, 6 boards, 5 assists, and just under 2 steals. He led the league in triple-doubles in the ’95-’96 season and also won a Gold Medal in the ’96 Summer Olympics in ATL. Until the ankle problems, Hill was on his way to being a first ballot Hall of Famer. While he’s still enjoying a nice career, you can’t help but think of what may have been without the injuries. SHOUT OUT TO YINKA DARE FOR THIS ILL MIX.
