Ranking the Best NBA Trios of All-Time

25. Tim Hardaway – Chris Mullin – Mitch Richmond


Proof that winning isn’t always necessary for producing a fun trio, ‘Run TMC’ (Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, Chris Mullin) took the basketball world by storm in the early ’90s. Led by visionary head coach Don Nelson, Golden State played a fast-paced brand of basketball which looked vaguely reminiscent of the style seen today. All three guys could fill it up in a number of ways. Hardaway typically fed the sharpshooting wings in Mullin and Richmond. After leading the league in scoring in 1990, the Warriors were promptly broken up due to defensive limitations. Although they were only together for a few years, ‘Run TMC’ had a memorable stretch.

24. Steve Nash – Shawn Marion – Amar’e Stoudemire


Speaking of fast-paced, high-octane offenses, few teams could keep up on the scoreboard with the mid-2000’s Phoenix Suns. Under the tutelage of current Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni, the Nash-led Suns blitzed teams in waves on the offensive end. Nash went on to win two MVP’s during this time. Stoudemire and Marion combined for nine All-Star appearances. It was a perfect match — as it featured the sweet-shooting, pass-first point guard with two of the league’s bounciest and most versatile forwards.
