Oh the potential Grant Hill had coming out of Duke. He, along with Scottie Pippen, defined the role of the point-forward. He jumped out to a quick start in his first few years in the NBA, getting to the All-Star game in his first year and being a First-Team All-NBA member in his third.
Hill also only missed 25 games in his first six seasons, but that all changed in the 2000-01 season, when he missed all but four games. From there, he only made two All-Star games and his scoring dropped drastically.
Despite that, Hill has managed to re-invent his career as a defender and all around player, even at the age of 39. His career averages are 17.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists. That being said, he had two great seasons which stood out. In 1995-96, he averaged 20 points, 9.8 rebounds and 7.0 assists. In 1999-00, Hill had his best scoring year with an average of 25.8 points.
Jack Marin was a more difficult decision because of Luol Deng, Corey Maggette and Shane Battier also played for Duke. Marin played for 11 seasons in the NBA, with two All-Star games. He had career averages of 15 points, five rebounds and two assists. Marin's best season came in 1971-72, with averages of 22.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists.
He is put as the second option above Deng for two reasons. First, Deng has yet to peak quite as well as Marin did. Deng also just made his first All-Star game, while Jack made two in his career. That being said, it looks likely that Luol Deng will pass him as a better small forward, he just hasn't quite yet.
