NBA white guy of the day Chris Mullin
One of my All time favorite white guy basketball players Chris Mullin, who was part of Run TMC with Mitch Richmond and Tim Hardaway with the Warriors. Who had a fun and storied career in the late 80’s and 90’s. John Stockton and Chris will always be two big white guy point guards from the 90’s I’ll always remember.
Mr. Mullin was actually Mr. Basketball for New York State and was recruited by legendary coach of St. Johns Lou Carnesecca. His freshman year there he set a record scoring 16 pts a game. Chris was named Big East player of the year 3 times and also named to the All American team 3 times. Adding to his ridiculous college career he actually was on a gold medal winning olympic team in 1984. His senior year he brought the team to the final 4 averaging 19 points a game.
He was picked 7th overall in the 1985 NBA draft to the Golden State Warriors. He was drafted in front of Detlef Schrempf, Charles Oakley, Karl Malone, Joe Dumars and A.C. Green. Chris had an historic NBA career capped off by being on the Dream team in 1992 and winning the gold metal again. Mullin was eventually voted in the the NBA Hall of Fame and now is the coach of St. Johns as of 2015 amassing a 20-38 record.
Here are some Highlights.
