'90s Highlights

The kid out of Brooklyn with the buzz cut was one of the purest shooters to pick up a basketball. After shitting on cats when he was at St. John's, Mullin continued to do the same in the NBA. Along with Mitch Richmond and Tim Hardaway, they formed Run TMC and averaged 116 points a game over the course of two seasons ('90-'91). Mully was also a member of the 1992 Dream Team aka the greatest team ever assembled.

He averaged 25 and 5 for four consecutive seasons until the injury bug hit. When his numbers took a dip, the Warriors dealt him to Indiana where he helped the Pacers make two consecutive Eastern Conference Finals appearances in 1998 and 1999. Injuries were minor compared to his battle with alcoholism early in his career. Those setbacks didn't stop Chris from becoming a Hall of Famer.
