That's how the freak athlete, great all around small forward blueprint was supposed to go. Hill was supposed to be the link and he was but for too brief a time.
Absolutely, good post.
Pippen was really the prototype for that point forward position.
Hill would've been the evolutionary link between Pip and the finalized EPITOME final product, LeBron James ... much the way Julius Erving was the evolutionary link between Michael Thompson, and the EPITOME final product, Michael Jordan.
Statistically he was just hitting his peak before he got that ankle injury too. It's sad we missed out on two generational defining players from the 90's Hill and Penny because of injury.
