Happy birthday Chris Mullin. Here are some highlights.

Jul 30, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

You look at a picture of Chris Mullin and you don’t think “that guy has a lot of playground in his game,” but Mullin was a showman. He was not only arguably the best pure shooter of his generation but he had an all-around game, he could pass, he ran the floor, he played good overall ball.

Mullin, the guy who resurrected St. John’s, became a New York hero and was a member of the great Run TMC teams of the Warriors, he was a member of the 1992 original Dream team, and is now rightfully a Hall of Famer.

Mullin turns 50 today. Happy birthday Chris.

For fun, here is his Hall of Fame induction video.

    Great player, and he had ” The Chris Mullen Show”. Google it if you don’t know it.

    Goosebumps watching these videos…I was just old enough to start being a sports fan when Run TMC was around.

    I think Mullin is one of those players you could drop in the league in 1953 or 2013 and he would be a great player either way.

    Best Player in the history of the Big East
    4x – all 1st team Big East
    3x – Big East Player of the Year -ONLY PERSON TO EVER DO SO – shared with Patrick Ewing his senior year only because Thompson voted for Pearl Washington to make sure Ewing got a piece of the award
    – won the Wooden Award his senior year
    – if they had the 3point line when he was in college – he would still own conference scoring record ( that was a layup for him)

    These are some weak highlights. Chris Mullen was not even all that. What gives?

    also what’s up with the hick song(s)?

      Either you are too young to have watched “Mully” play live or you are not intelligent enough to understand a real basketball player…I feel for you

        I understand what “a real basketball player” is. I never said he sucked. I just don’t he is all that. Don’t agree F**k it

    It was a pleasure to watch our West Coast version of Larry Bird. Crafty is the best word I could use to describe Mullin. You can call Chris a poor man’s version of Larry Bird, but the thing is if you watch both of their game, these guys always knew where everyone was on the floor.

    These guys were not the most gifted or most physically talented players in the league, but they were just incredible players.

    You’re not going to be “wow” by their highlights, but if you watched their games, you’d understand why they’re HOFers.

    That’s a MUST view for anyone who dare calls themselves a basketball fan.

    He was, quite simply, a pleasure to watch.

    There simply isn’t a player playing today with the skill set of Mullin…..faster…yes,jump higher…yes, more famous….yes…..richer….yes….but more skilled….NO….Shoot,drive with either hand,pass with either hand,rebounded well,off man defender…..playing the game and making it look so easy…..Mullin,like the true greats in every sport,understood it is a game of geometry….angles and physical relationships between position and movement….not a track meet or highlight reel….
