In his years as a 90’s Knick, this stud off the bench averaged about 2.6 points per game and destroyed the boards when no one was watching. Only when star center Patrick Ewing had sweated off his entire body weight and the Knicks were down by 30 would chants of “Herb” echo through Madison Square Garden. Pat Riley would sigh, re-grease his Gordon Gekko do and point at #32 to hop off the bench for 3 killer minutes.
But who can forget those 1994 NBA Playoffs when Ewing picked up 2 quick fouls? Herb leapt off the bench IN THE FIRST QUARTER, Rudy-like, filled with pep, playing the great Chicago Bulls in the World’s Most Famous Arena and he… um… he uh… got dunked on 4 times in 4 minutes.
