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.”
One of the short term objectives for George Karl is assembling his coaching staff in Sacramento and it’s likely that the Kings existing assistants will remain intact — with perhaps one addition, is learning. According to league sources, Mitch Richmond and Coby Karl are possible additions. Richmond — a Hall of Famer, former King, and current scout for the franchise — may be in the mix to join Karl’s staff. Coby Karl, George’s son, is currently playing professionally in Germany and is under contract. So a more likely scenario is that the younger Karl joins the Sacramento ranks this summer.
