The Complete History of NBA Players Being Called "The Next Jordan"

Grant Hill

Year: 1994

Hill's career started out with a bang, taking home co-Rookie of the Year honors (with future Hall of Famer Jason Kidd) in the '94-'95 season; he then made the All-Star team in six of the next seven seasons. During those first six seasons, Hill was one of the premiere players in the L. His skill level and his personality helped Grant net tons of endorsements. Unfortunately, Hill broke his ankle in the 2000 Playoffs and was never the same again. 

Hill only made the Conference Finals once (2009-10 with the Suns) and that was as a member of the bench squad. Hill's a smart guy and a heck of a talent but like everyone else on this list he failed to live up to the ridiculous expectations of "The Next Jordan."
