It was only a week or so ago that Grant Hill announced to the Inside The NBA crew that he was hanging up the Filas (of sorts) and calling it a career after 19 seasons in the NBA. In case you missed it, the fine folks in our video department did a great retrospective on Mr. Hill’s career (which you can see below). The video puts a respectful bow on the career of Hill, who was the No. 3 pick of the 1994 Draft and rose to NBA stardom almost overnight.
But what some of you younger readers (or even the older ones) might have missed is just how nasty of a dunker and overall player Hill was during the peak of his athletic powers with the Detroit Pistons. Luckily, the fine folks over at Pistons.com have compiled the 10 best plays from Hill’s days in the Motor City and it is an absolute must-watch.
