A 6'2" guard from Virginia Tech, Combs was nicknamed "The Kentucky Rifle" for his long-range shooting. He was drafted by the National Basketball Association's San Diego Rockets in 1968, although he never played for them, opting to spend his entire career in the rival American Basketball Association after being drafted by the Dallas Chaparrals in the 1968 ABA Draft. Combs was a member of the Dallas/Texas Chaparrals, the Utah Stars, the Memphis Tams, and the Virginia Squires, and he appeared in three league All-star games (1970, 1971, 1972). He also won an ABA Championship in 1971 as a member of the Stars, and he led the league in three-point baskets made (103) in 1971–72. When he retired in 1975, he had scored 7,666 career points.
