Richard Wayne Dumas is a retired basketball player who was associated with the NBA, and had a professional career from 1990 to 2003. He was considered one of the most promising players playing for the Phoenix Suns, back in the early 90s. His most memorable season was in 1993, when he helped his team make it to the finals of the NBA. He had an average of 15.8 ppg and 4.6 rpg. His career best play was when he reached the score of 25 points in the 5th game of the 1993 NBA Finals, and he showed all the qualities in that season to become a great player. Unfortunately, that was his only success in the NBA, since in the following years, he was in the clasps of substance abuse, until by 1997, he was out of a roster spot.
