FILA 95: Return of the “Grant Hill 1”

July 22, 2013 BY / 12

ROOKIE YEAR


The Detroit Pistons were understandably thrilled when Grant Hill fell into their hands as the third pick in the 1994 NBA draft. Hill was a class act and a proven winner, and it appeared the sky would be the limit for his potential as a instant contributor on a talent-starved Pistons roster. It didn’t take too long into the 1994-1995 season before it was obvious that Grant would not only step right into action, but exceed expectations every step of the way.


In his rookie campaign, he led the team in scoring with 19.9 PPG along with a well-rounded tally of 6.4 rebounds and 5 assists. Despite Hill’s best efforts, Detroit fumbled through an ugly 28 win season his first year, but it was clear that he was a reason to keep the faith and be hopeful for the future. The Pistons had their first post-Bad Boys era superstar and a new face of the franchise that fans could be proud to call their own.
