Powered by imdb

Mitch Richmond graduated from Boyd Anderson High School in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida, in 1984. He attended Moberly Area Junior College in Missouri for two years before transferring to Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, in 1986. In his two seasons as a Wildcat, Mitch averaged over 20.7 points and 6.0 rebounds per contest and led his team to the Elite Eight of the 1988 NCAA tournament, where they lost to the University of Kansas, their in-state and in-conference rival who ultimately won the national title. Mitch Richmond played on the 1988 United States men's Olympic basketball squad, earning a bronze medal. Following his Olympic experience, Mitch turned his sights to the National Basketball Association. The Golden State Warriors had selected Mitch with their first-round draft choice, the #5 selection overall. Mitch rewarded the Warriors by having an outstanding first season, culminating in his being named the Rookie of the Year in 1989. In Golden State, he teamed with Chris Mullin and Tim Hardaway to lead a high-scoring offense which earned the nickname Run-TMC, after the first initials of the offensive stars. After playing for Golden State, the Sacramento Kings and the Washington Bullets, Mitch played one final season as a reserve for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2001-2002, garnering an NBA championship ring. Mitch finished his career with a scoring average of 21.0 points per game, with a total of 20,497 points.  See full bio on IMDb »
