There are hundreds of men who have played Big East basketball in New York City, some famous and others all but forgotten. Of them all, though, there may not have been a more pure shooter than Chris Mullin. He was a four year All-Big East standout and first team all-American as a senior at St. John's University under Hall of Fame coach Lou Carnesecca. He won the John R. Wooden Award and both USBWA and UPI Player of the Year in his time there and went on to have a 16-year career in the NBA, scoring over 17,000 points.
A member of the 1992 Dream Team Olympic squad, Mullin is a Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer. He also spent some time in the front office of the Warriors and Sacramento Kings, before retiring from playing in 2004. Since then, he's worked as an analyst on NBCSBA telecasts.
Most recently, he has reteamed with his Run-TMC comrades Tim Hardaway and Mitch Richmond to offer color commentary on Warriors pregame shows. The trio appears on a handful of shows each season, including the upcoming broadcasts of Golden State's games at Chase Center this December. It's a role that he takes seriously, and one that makes him happy to be able to reunite with his former teammates. The three will be on the air for four pre-game shows that should have fans outside the arena buzzing. NBCSBA has also arranged for Mullin to take over some regular play-by-play duties for the Warriors, when the schedule allows.
