Newly minted Basketball Hall of Famer Chris Mullin has suggested that instead of retiring just his number, the Golden State Warriors should also include his famed running mates Mitch Richmond and Tim Hardaway in the ceremony.
Mullin spoke during a news conference for the Hall of Fame's 2011 inductees in Springfield, Mass., and suggested that the trio nicknamed Run-TMC, who became synonymous with exciting, up-tempo Warriors basketball in the early 1990's, should stand together throughout history.

Shaquille O’Neal’s sheer physicality made up for any lack of moves, as defending him was much like posting up a CSX freight train.
