Would you be surprised to learn that Hall of Fame forward Dennis Rodman once again said some crazy stuff about the modern NBA? On Tuesday’s “Reiter Than You” on CBS Sports, Rodman asserted that the Run TMC Golden State Warriors were better than today’s team led by Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. You can watch for yourself above. “Guess what, remember that [Run TMC], what they called it, Golden State back in the day?” Rodman said. “They was way better then. They were scoring like 130 points a game back then. They was way better then than now.”
With all that being said, I don’t want people to forget just how good the NBA was back when I was playing and how hard we competed with one another. On that note, here are the five toughest defensive assignments of my 14-year career. Mitch Richmond: Mitch was a big guard — 6′ 5” and about 220. (I was about 6′ 2″, 185.) He could do it on both ends of the court. He was a solid defender and took pride in it.
Now all that’s missing on the St. John’s coaching staff for the full “Run TMC” reunion is Tim Hardaway. Mitch Richmond will fill the vacant assistant coaching spot under head coach Chris Mullin, the school announced Thursday. Richmond served as a special advisor for the Johnnies last season. Richmond and Mullin played together for three years on the Golden State Warriors, part of a high-scoring trio that also included Hardaway.
His role in that team, Richmond figures, is why he will be inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame on May 16 despite playing only three years in the Bay Area before being traded to Sacramento. “I think it had to do with the other two guys I played with, the team I played with,” Richmond said of his election. “It was the Run TMC era. Playing with that team it was probably one of the funnest teams that people recognized the Bay Area about.”
