You know to go wow took me awhile because you know you you with these guys and EEE. Rookie Eddie Mitch Richmond. On Chris Mullen all star and you just looking at these guys you like man you know it is just on the count difficult but I guess it before they put me up by any Wayne's an icy night. You quarterback that's around waiting list as do it. And now. In known as high as at all happened. He originate or the color crossover Tim Hardaway back in the Bay Area getting inducted into the barriers sports hall of fame tonight what a great honor for each and he's here on the afternoon libel Papa by turning to 57 game so. You Mitch. Chris you guys are still tied obviously shipment to game together yesterday we of course great saint Jean is well is hanging around with the guys just talk about those times and early ninety's when you guys got to roll and scorn over seventy points a game there were talking before we started to segments and you guys earlier originators of the small ball not my dad Tony was Don Nelson. In your three guard lineup just talk about playing when Mitch and Chris. Exactly you know I try tell folks you know all. This era. Com started way back in 899091. Would Don Knauss. I'm small ball he called a small ball. And Nam a lot of people didn't know how to on guard us because we had different combinations out there and Tom Tolbert. Was our dream migraine I've bringing up the ball in orchestrating a lot of office. We've got called a controlled chaos out via because there. If we didn't know. What we've is doing it all the teams definitely didn't know that we're the owners don't want so we caught Allison calls here and there. And now it that was like you know. Dual bank PA cork or some mighty fake something names and post up by now we knew exactly who we used a point but they'd you know will lose don't want so. Com yeah I mean Dan Tony gets in now because. You know we have social media we have NB ATV back in pointing we it was TTV ads. A lot you was on now NBC. And that was it you know a lot he would in no. About com on the Golden State Warriors or Ryan TMC so you know it was no social media. But now now you know all the people gave an act of wasteful what we did. And now but if they if they look at a history and go back on YouTube and audit you understand that when I'm talking about but you know. You know just just just watching these guys played game. Com you know. How they and they keep more stiff curry he just tees moved Klay Thompson just keeps moving. Com you know you get you get at all on dream migraine coming in. And just walk history stuff tell people move corn down it is said history you know are we trying to give him the ball at you know just sport fishery now on the office. Which is fun just just wanna have. Back doors slips. You didn't eat when when you. Our plan we guys. They know how to play and look and flood as they stay the same things that you look for bad duel at eight AC to play before happens. That's the way. That's a way I asked why La watch and worries play because it it does bring back some in America memories but they just they just played a game the right way. Getting moved abolish the same open offense that Nellie had any you know I took from Doug Moe years ago Timmy right that is the main differences that three ball. And the way they shoot it and in Houston this year shot more than half of their shots being of the on the line you're on the go on the bench for years was standing and Detroit and you know the deal here and it's amazing to me that you guys could score as many points you you scored without. The three ball but if you guys played in in net today Sarah. What what we'd like were run TMC is born for today's basketball not the lady. He's a ninety's to no question no question it goes Bora for today's basketball and a way to ruse are today. Our man you know. This I mean how we used to get to hold back in the day would all the cold inane Graham been pushing and it. And you can steer people hand check and stamina way to that you need to be steered to. So anyone get to the hole. But it we had a rules that that what today on Tom not just on defense for us because we try to manipulate the rules on defense. And we get colon allowed illegal defense but now. I mean you could just have a dad is play his own and be down and you just guard on the people down to four people on his own man at you know. I mean because. I mean it would have been great to do that but. But you know. These guys dot com you know a date three point is now that's what issue they they say in Downey savings and analytics they say that. And in the mid range jump shot. If you don't shoot day they don't want you should mirroring jumps out if you look at Houston Rockets right now. They do not shoot me rate jump shot it is only one person issue to me arranged on shyness Chris Paul. Thereby else. Eight a step back but they stepped back to a three eagle coin and if they see it did they get you beat the cornea for a lay up. You know they date a step back for three now instead of stand back from mid range jump shots they say mid range jump shots like like Dan Tony say. Mid range jump shot is not on beat as we let Karen direct shoot as many midrange jump shots as he wants okay he is 3840. You know I mean and they wind so I mean you you get you get it. Get a watch what you you do out the year because. If they if because Kevin Durant he's a sniper he don't he don't make those mid range jump shots. Op more the and you think he's not going to make. Anybody says that Timmy never so your friend Chris Mullin play pounds and he gives you a victory in Atlanta this dreary stepped up when you play college ball he wasn't a that's three point shooting the three point line. What wasn't even in the rules and a great Tim Hardaway joining us in studio in the afterglow a puppet Vontae. Here that if I said they gave before it goes into the Bay Area sports hall of fame. Tonight and you know just pick it up on what you're. Talk about and you know the way you guys move the ball on the way you guys shot the ball and I was I often tell the audience the story I tell a lot in analogous small ball all the time the Delhi started issue though. He years and years ago but the one thing when you watch James Harden play. You could've done that. Every play yet they came in at the Molly admits wouldn't be in Springfield right now. They don't watch her life so just talk about the rule that Nellie had for you when you could use the killer crossover project couldn't use it. Right away but James Harden laws everybody this sleep it makes should be ready to ask you hate everybody dance that was after everybody touch the ball. Right right right not Nellie Nellie always see it this he said Tim you don't give you dance tent I'm that you have this dance tent but we. But we we don't control OK but first things first. When we and we bring in the ball on a fast break you come down right to do anything come down to shoot three come down due to crow also would go for Leo whatever. But he CA you know normally if they score and we don't have the basket picks it up. Go through. That their bios touched the ball when a ball comes back to you. The and you going TO dance move and you keep you know hasn't dance time. And now and do what you need to do on the other side of the flow whichever way you come up passing go through. Thereby see what they get first Indian come back to you dean take your man off the dribble. And and make hay and create a place for you or your teammate the end so law. I mean it was just a rule debt because it like you see it. If I had a ball in my hands. I Abby likes these aren't just drew drew drew drew Drupal. And like he CA Chris Marla admits they've been that it could sell but not you know I and I tell folks this I CA you know we we practice one day for about. Osce about two hours. And now. And Chris he shot the ball. Mostly every time began I picked at practice. And people think I'd be exaggerating. Messier effort to Alice Chris Mullen did not miss jumps. Did not miss in two hours of practice. And in every time began. He shot he month on what tedious he probably had about 75 points that day and crack is easy to read too would have. But he bet I mean so when I see people say did you know he made. Eighty fat out of a hundred he made this idea. I say amassing Chris Mullen did not miss a shot into us so I think his ears are burning tonight hey but I mean yes yes. And so we have on the line Soria I'm calling you out there. Costello Hollywood with Arafat and I'm absolutely with. Two hours of practice and never pass the buck fridge and shouted everyday after I would feel about it and I ask. I did he even gave it to one because our own good yeah. Yeah I'm so I insignia. He passed ball as he Gatti he was open so we shot. Well.

Really was short lived so does yeah. Part of Iceland interracial years so just talk about that day when Mitch Richmond they get traded to Sacramento for Billy Owens would have both you guys felt like was it. Obviously it was devastating because you guys are still close to his day but just talk about that moment when inmates got treated and all of a sudden run teams he was broken up. Well I tedious it was. It was a beginning to Ian. For me. And Tom and for the team. Because we had established. Something. Odd chemistry with a us that we weasel state but like you know 56 years. And when Ellie seated then he traded mixed. It would mean and her. I mean they're really hurt it it it into the film and it will ultimately about. I guess all week in Noah to. Before we you know really got our minds back into. Because. It was ironic we play. Sacramento I think that next game right Mitt ami right Molly we get so we played them in bed that next game image wasn't there. And now and because he he was still trying to process it to. When it was on it it was it was just tough. And it and it. As it is not only as a free hand but a family member of but just stands I get it it you know we head. Chemistry that we had and we was looking to do. Something much more crater. And take it to the next level. That's what he's looking for. And it was a big blow and hey it's the I think. It is stunned us for a while. From Italy but it from property or your. Go to yeah mode because the comment up every time equipment are eager grants made it to major. Aren't the real inferno in the corner where grew the most the most the year. Emotional orbit but yeah I can read we really Ehrlich we are bumpy going.
