Imagine being a lefty, a Warrior fan, and sitting 3rd row for much of Mully's career. I can confidently say, I saw no NBA player play more minutes than him.
Congrats, Mully! Thanks for showing white kids everywhere that speed and athleticism can be substituted with brains & hustle.
You are one lucky MOFO, you where at "The Catch" 3rd row at the Warrior games..........good lord man!
Season tickets used to be affordable to the middle class.
and you're right, I was fortunate as hell, not to just be there, but to be sharing it all with either my dad, or my closest family & friends; the end result on scoreboard was secondary. That, and being born at the right time. 40 and proud!
That is my dream, to one day sit courtside. My brother had a photographers pass one year and was under the basket and when he got home he told me he couldn't believe how physical it gets in the paint with the big men..........scary as he put it lol
