FILA 95: Return of the “Grant Hill 1”

July 22, 2013 BY / 12


If you were asked to name some of the most popular NBA players from the star-studded mid-90s era, chances are that Grant Hill might not be one of the first names that comes to mind. With so much talent and so many big personalities in the league at the time, it’s easy to overlook Grant Hill’s popularity when looking back, but in 1995, the NBA All-Star ballots told a different story.

Not only was Hill the first rookie in NBA history to lead the league in All-Star votes, he was the first rookie in all of the major sports to claim the honor. The fans got their wish as Grant Hill started the game, putting in 10 points and 3 assists for the East in 20 minutes of action, all the while with his first signature Fila shoe along for the ride.
