"Sometimes I forget until maybe I watch a video or two (of his pre-injury days),'' said Hill, averaging 12.0 points this season, "I'm not going to sell myself or something like that, but I feel confident enough and not sounding arrogant that, if I hadn't have gotten hurt, I probably would (be a sure-fire Hall of Famer)."I'll put my (first) six years up against anybody's ... Bill Walton (made the Hall of Fame). How many years did he play healthy? Who knows? I'll keep my fingers crossed.''
Hill brings up a good point. While Hill has played in 811 career NBA games, the often-injured Walton only managed to get into 468.http://nba.fanhouse.com/2009/12/14/w...e-hall-passes/Walton, like Hill, won two NCAA titles, although Walton was one of the greatest college players ever. Walton did win two NBA titles and an MVP trophy, while Hill hasn't broken into either of those categories.
What are your thoughts on Grant Hill? I was a big fan in the early days and when he was to be paired with T-Mac in Orlando I thought it was going to be a contending combination but it was never meant to be. Should he make it? I think it all comes down to who he's competing against.
