eh to fair IIRC he kinda had a so-so detroit team when he was there and the players they got in the trade for him performed pretty well for Detoit (wallace was I think a 2 time defensive player of the year). He definitely had no where near the talent Webber had w/ the kings.
Also his last season in Detoit (and last pre-injury) had been his best so far and he looked to be still improving... I mean I don't agree with the MJ comparison, but a healthy Hill would've been a lock for the HOF.
After the first six seasons of his career, before his ankle injury, Hill had a total of 9,393 points, 3,417 rebounds and 2,720 assists. Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, and LeBron James are the only three players in league history to eclipse these numbers after their first six seasons
