Who is Grant Hill?

Grant Henry Hill is a former American basketball player who played professionally for the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, and Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.

As a collegian with Duke University, he was the 1994 ACC Player of the Year, a two-time NCAA All-American, and a two-time NCAA champion. As a professional he was the 1995 NBA co-Rookie of the Year, and was a seven-time NBA All-Star, five-time All-NBA selection, and three-time winner of the NBA Sportsmanship Award.

Throughout his college career and early in his years with the Detroit Pistons, Hill was widely considered to be one of the best all-around players in the game, often leading his team in points, rebounds and assists. Many went as far as to say that he was one of the greatest collegiate basketball players in NCAA history. Despite dominance in his first six seasons with the Pistons, in which he averaged 21.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 6.3 assists, his next twelve seasons were injury plagued, as he averaged just 13.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game. On June 1, 2013, after 19 years in the league, Hill announced his retirement from the NBA.
