Mitch Richmond will join the NBA Hall of Fame. He’s got a ring and an All-Star Game MVP and a gold medal and a whole lot of career points and the knowledge that tells him that he stuck it out on a series of terrible teams while never making a fuss about the noise surrounding him. He’s a Hall of Famer without the help of NBC, without any League Pass alerts, and without ever having the help of a general manager who knew what he was doing.
Mitch Richmond did this on his own. Sometimes, that’s enough.
