Grant Hill should be inducted into the Hall of Fame based on general principle. He was probably the only Blue Devil to not be hated. Hill could do it all, man. Those that seen him play in his prime shed a tear when they see him now. Hill led the Pistons in scoring, rebounds and assists three times, joining Wilt and Baylor as the only players to do so. He also put up 9,393 points, 3,417 rebounds and 2,720 assists in his first six seasons putting him in the same company as Bird, LeBron and Oscar. Grant was the real deal until he broke his ankle during the 2000 Playoffs. Feeling unwanted by the Pistons, Hill signed with Orlando the following season. He felt both Orlando and Detroit team doctors mismanaged his injuries and he was never the same again.
