Grant Hill Bio

As a collegiate with Duke University and early in his professional career with the Detroit Pistons, Hill was considered one of the best all-around players in the game, often leading his team in points, rebounds and assists.

Hill played four years with the Duke Blue Devils, winning national titles in 1991 and 1992, where Duke became the first Division I program to win consecutive titles since UCLA in 1973. Hill led Duke to the championship game once again in 199. He won the Henry Iba Corinthian Award as the nation's top defensive player in 1993, and in 1994 he was the ACC Player Of the Year.

During his collegiate career, Hill became the first player in ACC history to collect more than 1900 points, 700 rebounds, 400 assists, 200 steals and 100 blocked shots. As a result of his successful college career, he became the 8th player in Duke history to have his jersey number (33) retired. He played with many Duke greats including Bobby Hurley.

Hill was drafted by the Detroit Pistons with the third pick in the NBA Draft after graduating from Duke in 1994. In his first season, he became the first Pistons rookie since Isiah Thomas in 1981-82 to score 1000 points. Hill ended up sharing NBA Rookie of the Year Award honors with Jason Kidd of the Dallas Mavericks, becoming the first Piston since Dave Bing in 1966-67 to win the award. Hill also won the Sporting News Rookie Of the Year award.

Hill was named to the all-NBA first team in 1997, and all-NBA second teams in 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000. Hill also regularly played in the NBA All-Star Game, where he made history by being the first rookie ever to lead an NBA All-Star fan balloting in (1994-95) with 1,289,585 votes, narrowly defeating Shaquille O'Neal. In fact, Hill became the first rookie in all major sports to get most votes for an All-Star game.

Hill also won a gold medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta as a member of the U.S. men's basketball team, where he had the team's fifth highest scoring average (9.7) and led the team in steals (18).

At the conclusion of the 2004-05 season, Hill was awarded the Joe Dumars Trophy presented to the NBA Sportsmanship Award Winner. After the Pistons, he played for the Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns (where Steve Nash was his teammate). in 2012 he signed a contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. He retired from the NBA in 2013.
