You may not know much about Herb Williams. Even if you watched basketball in the 90s, you probably still wouldn’t know much about the guy. But if you were watching this Bulls & Knicks game from the 90s, you probably felt really bad for him. In a short stretch of just four minutes, he was DUNKED ON 4 TIMES: once by Pippen, once by Pete Myers and twice by Horace Grant!
Mutombo once said, “When you get dunked on, you know you are going to be on all the nightly highlights shows.” I’m pretty sure Herb was thinking that after Pip dunked on him, less so after Pete, and then said, “f**k it, who cares” after Ho Grant got him…twice.
WHO IS HERB WILLIAMS
