The Golden State Warriors announced they will retire Hall of Famer Chris Mullin's jersey No. 17 at a ceremony on January 20, when the team is scheduled to host the Indiana Pacers.

Mullin, who spent 13 years of his 16-season NBA career as a member of the Warriors, will become the sixth player in team history to have his jersey number retired, joining Alvin Attles, Rick Barry, Wilt Chamberlain, Tom Meschery and Nate Thurmond.

"This is certainly a tremendous honor and one that I will cherish, especially when you consider the few, elite gentlemen who have preceded me," said Mullin.

Mullin was a five-time NBA All-Star and collegiate standout at St. John's, where he is still the all-time scoring leader and was named Big East Player of the Year an unprecedented three times. In addition to his 1992 gold medal, he also won Olympic gold as a collegian in 1984, then played 16 NBA seasons for Golden State and Indiana, amassing 17,911 points. He was enshrined into the Hall of Fame this summer.

well deserved. I always loved Mullin as a kid, and his work ethic. I mirrored my shooting routine after his haha.

Its a pity that he had some offcourt trouble with Alcohol because he already is a hof but withouth that ( and the injurys) he would probably have been a top 30 player.
