Livingston — whose title is director, players affairs and engagement — will be the highest-ranking Black person in the Warriors’ front office since Mitch Richmond in 2008. Rod Higgins was general manager — and No. 2 in basketball operations under Chris Mullin — from 2004 to 2007, with Richmond as his assistant. When Higgins left to take Charlotte’s GM job in May 2007, Richmond was promoted to director of player personnel.

Ray: Can you name an all-star five for the Kings from your years with the team, as well as an opponents’ all-star five? Gary Gerould: For the Kings, I have to include Mitch Richmond, Chris Webber and Peja Stojaković. I probably have to include DeMarcus Cousins. I know that is frontline-heavy and I have not done justice to guards. I thought about Reggie Theus; I thought about Mike Bibby; I thought about Kevin Martin. In view of the success that the Kings had in that eight season run where Bibby was involved, I would make him probably the fifth guy. So Richmond, Stojaković, Webber, Cousins, Bibby is the five that I would go with.
According to Checketts, Ewing desired a relocation to Golden State and his power agent, David Falk, was pulling the strings. Mullin agreed to participate but was apprehensive. “Pollak was basically saying, ‘Look, Mullin is from New York, he doesn’t want to cooperate, he doesn’t want to be the reason Ewing gets to leave New York,” Checketts said in an interview with the Daily News. “But he’s in this tremendous conflict situation. Because if he makes it happen and you have Mullin, Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Patrick Ewing on the Warriors — they’re winning a bunch of titles.”
They were together for the 1989-90 and 1990-91 seasons, Hardaway’s first two in the NBA. Their run ended when the Warriors traded Richmond to Sacramento. But “Run TMC” remains part of Warriors’ lore. “We’re blessed, Tim and I and Mitch to have been able to stay together, stay close friends, pretty much our whole lives,” Mullin said. “We often look back and we smile. We’ve got great memories together. Of course, we wanted it to last longer but we cherish the times we were together and we’re able to share it with each other and the greatest fans in the world.”
