A few highlights from Grant Hill’s career (VIDEO)

Jun 2, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

With Grant Hill announcing his retirement after 19 NBA seasons on Saturday, the league put together a brief clip showcasing some of his highlights.

What’s most noticeable is Hill’s quickness and athleticism, and the speed and ease with which he was able to get by defenders and elevate to the basket.

This video could have been an hour long, but two minutes or so is enough to remind you of what we’ll be missing.

    Am I the only one that wishes this guy would’ve stayed healthy. The hoops landscape from 2000 through about 2007 would’ve have LOOKED entirely different! I said a couple weeks ago that he was Lebron before Lebron. Obviously not as strong but just as quick, good with the ball and capable in every other facet of the game. Lebron’s strength gives him capabilities that Hill’s body didn’t allow. But for any of us who watched him play sans bum ankles, he is the most favorable comparison to LBJ.

      I think that’s basically everyone. 😛

      Between Hill, Penny and McGrady, I think the 2000s lost 3 potential HoF superstars.

    very talented and could’ve easily been one of the greatest players of all-time…injuries placed a dark cloud over what could’ve, should’ve and would’ve been one of the all-time great careers.
