Saw somewhere that Mully is working on a Broadway musical as a shooting coach. Fuck yeah. I mean, if you’re gonna hire a shooter, hire a shooter, you know?
Always loved Mullin. He was the badass Brooklyn whiteboy tearing shit up in the heyday of Big East, he was the flat-topped (and damn near flat footed) left handed ASSASSIN in the pro’s, and he’s about the only guy this side of Herm Edwards that actually shows some personality on ESPN these days. Face it, that’s the trifecta of doom and shit.
Throw in the fact that he overcame alcoholism in his early days in the NBA, and really what’s not to love about the guy?
Anyway, like the title of this post says, now is my big fucking chance to post the old Chris Mullin show sketch, which is really one of the funniest and most absurd things I’ve ever seen, and certainly the greatest thing any athlete has ever done in the comedy realm.
Alas, there were actually two of these made, but I can’t find the first one no matter how hard I tried. I mean, it literally has to be the only video on earth that can’t be found on Youtube these days, proving that life is indeed horribly unfair sometimes. Sad part is I believe the missing video to be even funnier than this one. Let’s just say it involves Maya Angelou shooting 3 pointers and missing badly and leave the rest to your dreams.
