Watch Chris Mullin beat Kings at three-point shooting (VIDEO)

Oct 4, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

The Sacramento Kings have taken their training camp to UC Santa Barbara, a university where you have to be pretty smart to get in but nobody really goes there for the academics. Interesting motif to choose for training camp, but there you have it.

After practice Thursday, some UCSB students were let in and entertained by a three point shooting contest featuring DeMarcus Cousins, Jimmer Fredette, Ben McLemore, and consultant and team advisor Chris Mullin. Oh yea, Mullin just happens to be one of the best shooters in the history of the game and a Hall of Famer.

According to Cowbell Kingdom, Mullin was introduced to the crowd as ““Vinny, a 16th year senior majoring in aeronautics” but then he proceeded to knock down 14-of-15 from three. (Cousins won the contest because he was the first to hit a half court shot, so apparently the rules the Kings use in this game make about as much sense as the rules of for quidditch.)

Great video from Cowbell Kingdom with the interviews.

    Damn, he’s moving faster now than he ever did on the court.

    Great idea. I’m sure spending time in Isla Vista will help Cousins get focused.

    Mullin left many,many people clawing at air and eating his dust….he was not remotely slow on the floor…..great lateral quickness,beautiful first step and that step was all he needed,bust you inside or out,with so many spins and banks off the he drive and break …till you stepped back and covered it and then he just dropped it on you…….as DC said…he is in the HoF for a reason….and it wasn’t that nasty ass haircut….

    You have to be smart to get in but nobody goes there for the academics…what a trite thing to say. Been there lately?

    2 out of the 3 Run TMC in SacTown. Love watching those 3 guys growing up. Why do so many GSW players end up going through Sacremento, I have no clue.
