Nifty!

I may be mistaking him for another player (because there were a few of them), but he was oddly overrated in NBA Live 08 PC, and not even in a way that made sense according to his skillset. It goes to show how much of an afterthought that version was. Then again, with a move like that, maybe there were on to something.

Herrmann is a legend in my household. My brother Mark always drafted him, and he was absolutely overrated in the 2Ks on last gen. He was a knockdown shooter from everywhere, fast as hell, and could finish with the best of them.

And yeah, makes you question if the gaming companies knew what they were doing after watching that finish... I wouldnt be surprised if he was overrated in Live 08 as well.

BUT, he was a solid player actually. He won rookie of the month in March of his rookie year and made the all rookie second team, he showed flashes (like that layup) of really good play.

I suppose it comes down to the guesswork that's involved with rookie ratings, and the lack of consistent official roster updates on that generation. If something was wildly wrong, it was seldom fixed. Players like that do become a part of our gaming lore, though. Darius Miles was quite overrated in NBA Live 2003, but it made him fun to play with, and set up a lot of trade possibilities if you picked the Clippers in Franchise mode.

Ha, Miles and Josh Childress in those older games. Both were unstoppable because of quickness, speed, and dunking ability.

Alonzo Gee was unbelievable in NBA 2K11.
