Chris Mullin is the one New York City product I often wondered …what if he played with the New York Knicks with Mark Jackson and Patrick Ewing. It never came to be. But Chris Mullin was fun to watch play and he was a very big part of StJohn’s success in the mid 80’s
He is a two-time Olympic Gold medalist and a two-time Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee (in 2010 as a member of the 1992 United States men’s Olympic basketball team (“The Dream Team”), and in 2011 for his individual career).
Mullin played shooting guard and small forward in the NBA from 1985 to 2001. During his playing time at St. John’s University, he was named Big East Player of the Year three times and was a member of the 1984 U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball team, Mullin was chosen as the seventh pick by the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the 1985 NBA draft. He returned to the Olympics in 1992 as a member of the “Dream Team”, which was the first American Olympic basketball team to include professional players.
He played with the Warriors from the 1985–86 until the 1996–97 season. Thereafter, Mullin played with the Indiana Pacers from 1997 until the 1999–2000 season. He retired after the 2000–01 season, playing for his original team, the Warriors.
