Richard Coffey was the defensive backbone of those teams. To use a hockey term, he was their grinder. While Willie Burton, Kevin Lynch, Melvin Newbern, and Walter Bond were getting the buckets, Coffey was cleaning the glass and was arguably the team's true leader. I don't think he had anything close to an NBA game, but it was pretty awesome to see him get a cameo with the young Timberwolves during their second season in 1990-91.
