Mullin impressed with new direction of Warriors
Friday, August 5, 2011
DANVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- Chris Mullin harbors no hard feelings toward the Golden State Warriors, and the Hall of Famer says he would go back to work for them under the new regime if the fit were right.
He's not ruling that out, either. Mullin -- set to be enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame next Friday night -- counts new coach Mark Jackson among his close friends. He worked with assistant general manager Bob Myers when Myers was an agent and Mullin was Golden State's executive vice president of basketball operations.
For now, the 48-year-old Mullin is busy paring down his Hall speech to the three-minute limit. And that's a tough task for the former St. John's star who beat alcoholism during a 16-year NBA career.
