Hello Warrior fans! Nice timing. It was Chris Mullin’s night, not yours. The evening shall forever be remembered for what you did, not Chris Mullin. There’s no question that Joe Lacob should have excluded himself from the entire deal. But did you have to pick that time, that moment to exercise your right to freedom of speech?
It was supposed to be a special night for Golden State Warriors legend Chris Mullin, as the team honored him with an elaborate jersey retirement ceremony for his No. 17 during Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
