Mitch Richmond played a total of four minutes in his only year in the playoffs as a Los Angeles Laker. Despite his remarkable pedigree, Richmond failed and displayed his age in his last season in the NBA. The six-time All-Star and former Rookie of the Year failed to excel in the Lakers' system, but a ring is a ring, especially for someone who made the playoffs only four seasons in his 14-year career.
