Back in the '90s, Grant was one of the most versatile players the league had ever seen. He was a great scorer, had an amazing vision for a forward, and gave every opponent major problems when he stepped on the court. During his time in Detroit, Grant averaged around 22 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists per game.
Hill had a very impressive rookie season as he was named the co-rookie of the year alongside Jason Kidd. He was the first player to lead the All-Star ballot voting as a rookie.
In his second NBA season (1995), Grant showed his All-Around ability by leading the NBA in most Triple-Doubles with 10 during that season. In his first two seasons in the league, NBA scouts were comparing him to Scottie Pippen in terms of his ability to handle the ball as a forward in setting the team play. With his ability to distribute the ball, Grant led all forwards in assists back in the 95-96 and 98-99 season. Hill was named to the all-NBA First Team in 1997, and All-NBA Second Teams in 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000 and 3rd place in MVP Voting in 1996!
Grant used his size to attack the basket and his speed to beat defenders in 1-on-1 action. In 1999-2000 season, he averaged 25.8 points which was the 3rd best behind Shaquille O'Neal and Allen Iverson. Grant was beasting everyone until an injury literally ruined his careers. Grant Hill never managed to fully recover and play at an elite level.
Imagine if he stayed healthy throughout his NBA Career — he could have been one of the greatest players the league has ever seen. Unfortunately, Hill remains one of the biggest what-ifs in NBA history.
