Complex.com’s latest compendium contains twenty-two entries for number thirty-three, but only the worst of luck kept it from being some other, much larger multiple of eleven.  The sheer fact that Grant Hill is still active in the NBA in 2011 seems shocking when you consider how many problems the 39-year old forward has endured to his ankles.  Much like Penny Hardaway, Hill filled the void during Michael Jordan’s first retirement and seemed poised for a Hall of Fame career until the injury bug relegated him to role player status.  And though Hill’s footwear legacy isn’t as rich as the Nike Air Penny series and its offspring, he did help resurrect Fila in the mid ’90s with a couple memorable signatures.  He’s back to the same brand he wore as a Duke Blue Devil now in models like the Nike Hyperize, and you can see a fairly complete history of his sneaker stylings on the full list at Complex.

Grant Hill deserves respect. This guy is 40+ and still a starter? U can't hate on that. He overcame multiple injuries.. and recovered well enough to continue years later... DUDE is a BEAST. Not as athletic as he used to be but who is at that age. His best shoes in my opinion where the Hill2 w/ the patent leather strip.. ILL!!

^^^ dude above me want some attention. I was considering his opinion until he mentioned Ben Wallace the greatest player of all time. Then I thought to myself, why try to educated dude. Just let him be.

Every last single one of them are a bunch of Pha*s! Michael Jordan is by far the most over rated athlete of all time, and his shoes are incredibly ugly!!!! WE all know that Ben Wallace of the Detroit Pistons is single handedly THE GREATEST ATHLETE IN NBA AND A FAR BETTER CENTER THAN MAJIC JOHNSON!! but as of right now i would say lebron james is better than michael jordan by a longshot and his shoes are better!! now if anybody wants to complain about it we can put money on it!!!!!!!!!

Rosie...Rosie...Rosie,SMH. First of all, your statement DOES NOT even pertain to the article you commented on. What does the 2 MJ's,LBJ, and let alone Ben Wallace has to do with GH's shoes? MAGIC (not Majic) could play all positions as a player during his days. Jordan could play 3 positions, LBJ could do it with 4. Sure, I respect your opinion about Ben Wallace as your g.o.a.t. He really play defense, but can he do it in offense? Son...you should gather more info before you say things like that. If my thoughts are right, you're a young sprout who was just squirted freshly out of your mama's pussy during Magic's time.

Ben Wallace. You said Ben Wallace. "Greatest Athlete" in the NBA I would have to say someone like Ray Allen or Billups or Grant HIll. C'mon son! These cats are in their late 30s and still ballin better than most in their 20s. Especially Ray who everybody knows he works hard to stay in shape. Ben Wallace though, really? Dwight Howard is a better athlete than Ben Wallace.

This dude should be banned from talking, period. Like my man Hov said "men lie, women lie, numbers don't." Please get it together, Jordan has countless Legendary shoes,6 rings > Lebitch 0 rings, and one over hyped shoe like him (preheats) as far as Ben Wallace vs. Magic, I wont even acknowledge that. Bottom line Jordan was a big time player in big games you couldn't find lebron in the two finals he has been in. The closet thing that we have ever seen to Jordan is Kobe, which still is not up to that level.

Big_Infinite

MJ-6 Rings, Magic-5 Rings.... Lebron 0... Rest my case. Now put sum money on dat explanation.. and how do u bring ben wallace into dis.. da man can barely comb his own hair let alone belong in a discussion wit MJ, Magic or even LBJ... And last time i checked, da REAL Ricky Rozay wears Jordans FAITHFULLY. Check any celeb foot post fa confirmation

He was primarily a point guard. Then, a power forward when he returned from retirement.
