Grant Henry Hill is an American NBA basketball player who currently plays for the Orlando Magic. Hill was one of the best all-around players of his generation, often leading his team in points, rebounds and assists. He was ranked #74 on “SLAM” Magazine’s “Top 75 NBA Players of All Time” in 2003. Hill still holds the record for most consecutive triple-doubles among active players with 3 - spanning from Apr. 11-14, 1997.
In college, Hill played four years with the Duke Blue Devils, winning national titles in 1991 and 1992, where Duke became the first college to win consecutive titles since UCLA in 1973. Despite losing two of the biggest contributors on the Blue Devils, Christian Laettner and Bobby Hurley who went on to play in the NBA, Hill led Duke to the championship game once again in 1994, but ended up losing to Arkansas Razorbacks. Hill was voted the best defensive player in the nation for the 1992-93 season, and in 1994 he was the ACC Player Of the Year.
Grant 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, Hill averaged 19.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.77 steals per game, sharing NBA Rookie the Year honors with Jason Kidd. In 2000, Hill was traded to the Orlando Magic.
