Tyrone Hill is able to get a posterizing jam in this game against his future teammate and frontcourt partner, Dikembe Mutombo.
Former All-Star and one of Xavier’s finest NBA players, veteran Tyrone Hill puts up 20 and 10 for the Philadelphia 76ers against the Atlanta Hawks. The 11th overall pick by the Warriors in the 1990 NBA Draft, Hill was a solid NBA power forward for the duration of his career. The career averages don’t jump off the page (9 points and 9 rebounds), but his hustle, determination, and the relentless nature in which Hill played made him a useful player for over 800 NBA games, retiring at age 35 in 2004.
Of the 801 games Tyrone Hill played in, he started in 610 of them, and averaged 28 minutes per game for his career. Durability.
