Herb Turetzky - The Other Nets' Legend

He has been a fixture at the Meadowlands and before that, Commack Arena and the RAC, the Nets' man for all seasons. Turetzky has seen it all from the scorer's table, thunder dunks from Dr. J, Darryl Dawkins and Vince Carter, sweet passes from Bill Melchionni and Jason Kidd, true grit from Buck Williams, Drazen Petrovic and Richard Jefferson. Now, although walking with difficulty, the 60-year-old Turetzky is headed for a milestone. Early next season, he will score his 1,000th straight game.
