As everybody celebrates Kevin Durant’s birthday today, NBA fans should also share some cake with the underrated sharp shooter Hersey Hawkins.
There’s not a lot of footage of Hawkins on the internet but I did find this great video of Hawkins scoring 30 (20 in the first half) against Michael Jordan and the Bulls. This game happened during Hawkins’ All-Star season in 1991 when he averaged 22 points a game.
Hawkins is currently the Player Development Director for the Blazers – the team that passed on Kevin Durant.
