Video: Chick Hearn Interviews Chris Mullin

By Coolhand Luke  |  July 19th, 2011  |  Published in History, Sports

hris Mullin is one of the greatest Golden State Warriors of all time, but his first couple years in the league left something to be desired. After overcoming a slow start and a bout with alcoholism however, Mullin went on to become an All-Star, a member of the gold medal winning 1992 Dream Team and a Hall-of-Famer, thus making him the NBA’s poster child of new beginnings.

This 1989 interview with legendary Lakers announcer Chick Hearn takes place during the turning point in Mullin’s career, and the year before Tim Hardaway was drafted to complete Run TMC and their subsequent string of play off appearances. His Brooklyn rogue is prominent, but it is his renewed focus, humbleness and dedication to his craft that shine through in this segment.

Props to our friends over at Warriors World for digging up this gem and naming the 6’ 7” white boy as the starting 2 guard on their all-time Golden State squad.
