Former Indiana Pacer Chris Mullin will be in Batesville next Tuesday at the Sherman House.

A former pro basketball player and NFL quarterback will be in Batesville next week.

Chris Mullin is a former NBA All-Star and 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist as a member of the Dream Team.

He spent 16 years in the league before retiring in 2001. Local basketball fans may recall him playing for the Indiana Pacers alongside Reggie Miller from 1997 to 2000, a time when the team appeared in two Eastern Conference Finals and one NBA Finals in 2000.

He said he enjoyed his time in Indiana as the basketball culture is similar to his native Brooklyn.

“Much like Indiana, in New York City basketball is a great tradition. Not only is it a very competitive sport, but people use it socially as well,” Mullin said. “When I was in Indiana, I heard that when you drive around town, that whether it is a firehouse or backyard you see a hoop everywhere. There is a love of the game that is very similar to New York.”

After his playing career, Mullin became the General Manager of the Golden State Warriors. He is currently an advisor to the chairman for the Sacramento Kings.

Mullin along with former NFL quarterback Bruce Mathison, will be in town sharing their stories about life in the professional sports world and the long term health challenges associated with the lifestyle.

The athletes will also speak about Max International. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about a patented breakthrough in cellular protection developed by a scientist. Mullin said it could help everyone, not just athletes.

Mullin and Mathison will be at the Sherman House at 7:00 p.m. on Tues., May 6. Contact Sherry Werner at (513) 256-3407 to confirm attendance. Seating will be limited.
