This weekend, Mitch Richmond deservedly gets inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

Richmond was a player ahead of his time, a guy whose game would fit in beautifully in today’s NBA. He was a great shooter in an era when the three ball was not as prevalent, but if you closed out wrong he could put it on the floor and get to the rim then finish with authority. There’s a reason he averaged 21 points a game or more for 10 consecutive seasons. He may be best remembered as part of the Warriors’ “Run TMC” years with Chris Mullin (already in the Hall of Fame) and Hardaway (who should be).

Richmond went on to be a six-time NBA All-Star, won an NBA title (2002 Lakers) and an Olympic Gold Medal (1996).

Enjoy the best of his career highlight plays.
