Chris Mullin Returns To Oracle To Announce Warriors Vs. Clippers On Christmas

The Golden State Warriors will see one of their best return to the arena on Opening Night 2011. Chris Mullin is coming home. Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area filed a report that former Warriors player and NBA Hall-of-Famer Chris Mullin will make his first visit to Oracle Arena in more than two-and-a-half years, as a part of ESPN’s announcing crew for the Warriors season opener against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Mullin left the Warriors on perhaps the worst note imaginable. As Warriors general manager, he was caught in a power struggle with owner Chris Cohan, team president Robert Rowell, and head coach Don Nelson, with the latter two constantly trying to usurp Mullin's position in making personnel moves for the team. Once he was undercut, Mullin left the team.

With Cohan, Rowell, and Nelson all gone, it looks as if the Warriors are doing their best to distance themselves from the past and Mullin seems more interested in returning to Oracle. Here's hoping the wounds heal.

This is the late night game on ESPN. What's also interesting is that Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy will be flying across the country to call their second game on the day (after the Finals rematch of Heat-Mavs), with their former buddy Mark Jackson making his coaching debut in Golden State.
