Born in Independence, Kansas, Hastings played collegiate ball at the University of Arkansas from 1978–1982. While there, he was initiated into the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

While being a heavily recruited athlete Hastings had a choice between the University of Kansas (in his home state) or the University of Arkansas. He chose the University of Arkansas.


He was selected in the second round (29th overall) by the New York Knicks in the 1982 NBA Draft. He was a member of the 1990 Detroit Pistons NBA championship team.

He holds the NBA record for most games in a row without a steal at 65 straight games. This spanned over a 3 year long period from 1989 - 1992.

Present day

Today, he hosts a radio-show with co-hosts Drew Goodman and Sandy Clough on Sportsradio KKFN 104.3 The Fan in Denver, Colorado. Prior to 2012, Hastings co-hosted shows with Mike Evans and Alfred Williams. He also provides television color commentary for the Denver Nuggets on the Altitude Sports and Entertainment cable TV network, working alongside Chris Marlowe.
