'90s Highlights

Mitch is one of the most underrated. Michael Jordan feels the same way. His Airness claims Richmond was one of the hardest guys he ever guarded. Mitch was a talented scorer that didn't miss a jumper. He shot for 49% in consecutive seasons ('90 & '91), that's almost unheard of for guards. Under the guidance of Don Nelson, Richmond and the rest of Run TMC blew teams out of the water, but that style of play never translated into playoff wins. Injuries slowed down what could've been a Hall of Fame career.
