GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS legends Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond had an important announcement to make to the Chase Center crowd during the Warriors’ April 7 matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers. “Dub Nation, we received great news last weekend,” Mullin said. “Warrior legend Tim Hardaway is a Hall of Fame member for the Class of 2022.” Hardaway, who was sitting courtside, stood and waved as he got a standing ovation.
It was a long time coming for Hardaway, who missed the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame vote five times. All of those missed opportunities almost kept him from answering his phone when he saw the Hall calling the week before. He didn’t want to hear the words, “I’m sorry, you didn’t get enough votes,” again. But this time, he got better news. Hardaway, Mullin and Richmond — the core of the Warriors’ famous Run TMC era that spanned from 1989 to 1991 — would be reunited in the Hall of Fame.
While Mullin, Richmond and Hardaway might never know what could have been, they do know that those two seasons created a legacy that is still a fan favorite today. “We only played two seasons together,” Mullin told ESPN. “It’s unique, but for us, as we look back, it’s sad in a way. Things happen and we made the best of the time we had together. For myself, it was the most fun, uplifting, energetic time I played. We had so much promise. “So many years later, so many decades later when we get together, we always ponder, ‘What if?'”
