At the trade deadline in 2012, many questioned why the Lakers would get rid of Derek Fisher for Jordan Hill as Fisher has been a part of five championship teams. However, the Lakers ended up finding a corner stone off the bench and one of the best energy guys in the NBA.
Hill has become a fan favorite at the Staples Center for his motor and propensity for crashing both the offensive and defensive boards. Before his energy, Hill was one of the NBA’s best offensive rebounders despite coming off the bench.
Today, Hill turns 26. Let’s show our appreciation for Hill’s hard work on the floor for the Lakers and wish him a happy birthday by liking the Jordan Hill graphic on our instagram account!
