Though Mullin was a three-time All-American and 1985 national player of the year at St. John's, some NBA teams were worried by his lack of athleticism. Benoit Benjamin, Joe Kleine and Jon Koncak were among the players picked ahead of him. As it turned out, Mullin could score against anybody. A brilliant shooter and crafty player, he averaged 18.1 points over 15 NBA seasons, making five All-Star teams. He also won gold with the U.S. Olympic teams in 1984 and 1992.
