2. player. 100. . SG/SF. (1997-00). Chris Mullin

Chris Mullin might be best known for his time with “Run TMC” Golden State Warriors in the late 80s and early 90s, but he did spend a few years playing for the Pacers towards the end of his hall of fame career.

After spending his first 12 years in the Bay Area with Golden State, the former St. John’s standout was traded to the Pacers in exchange for Eric Dampier and Duane Ferrell. While the hall of famer wasn’t the player he was in his prime with Golden State, he was still a tremendous 3-point shooter.

As of Oct. 4, 2018, Mullin still has the highest 3-point field goal percentage in franchise history. He still has two of the five best single-season 3-point field goal percentages in franchise history. His 46.5 mark in 1998-99 was the franchise record for nearly 20 years before Darren Collison eclipsed it last season.

If you ask most NBA fans about Mullin, his time playing alongside Tim Hardaway and Mitch Richmond will likely be the first thing that pops into their minds.

However, Pacers fans from the late 90s can also recount the period when they had two of the greatest 3-point shooters of all time on their team. As players age, the ability to shoot is usually the attribute that stays with them the longest. Mullin more than proved that to be the case during his run with the Pacers.
