Tim Hardaway
Tim Hardaway was the catalyst of the famed Run TMC (with Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond) for the Golden State Warriors that took the NBA by storm in the early 90s.  Hardaway was a point guard who set the running style of the Warriors in motion.  When traded to Miami in 96, Hardaway teamed with Alonzo Mourning to make the Heat title contenders.  Hardaway was also a great perimeter shooter who opponents could not leave open and he became the undisputed master of the crossover dribble with his mad dashes to the basket.  A 5 time All-Star and 5 time All NBA performer, Hardaway definitely has the credentials statistically with over 15,000 points and 7,000 assists.  Best remembered for his ability to get to the hoop and then dish, Hardaway is one of the best pure point guards in league history and arguably the best at his position not in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

I think Richmond should be higher than Hardaway.

I think Hardaway should down the line be in, but there are so many players about to retire he might keep getting pushed down that line.
