'90s Highlights

Like Penny, Hill was on his way to a Hall of Fame-type career. He was putting up LeBron numbers before LeBron. Homie was a triple-double machine and was a top five player in the late '90s. That was until an ankle injury during the 2000 playoffs almost ended his career. Grant is one of four players to rack up 9,000+ points, 3,000+ rebounds and 2,000+ assists in his first six seasons. The others? Oh, just some dudes named Larry, Oscar and LeBron. Hill did everything for the Pistons which probably led the front office to believe they didn't have to build a real team around him. With all his stats, Detroit never got out of the first round during his time there.
