The list of NBA players from Marist College is a short one. I am on that list. It does not matter that Marist had no history of NBA players before me, I was taken second overall. Yeah, I was humming a Jackson Five song all the way to training camp. My first year I started 71 games. I followed that by starting all 82 the next year. Four times we advanced to the Eastern Conference finals. Four times we went home empty-handed. We gave everybody plenty of excitement. Three of those losses came in a seventh game. “Miller Time” gave us the hops. I guess we just came up a little short on the barley. I finished my career with over 5,000 rebounds, 12,000 points, 1,000 assists and 1,000 blocks. Some might know me as the “Dunking Dutchman.”
Who am I?
