The others are Tom Meschery, Wilt Chamberlain, Alvin Attles, Rick Barry and Nate Thurmond.Although we never achieved the ultimate of winning a championship, I wouldnt trade in the people in this room that I was blessed to be around, said Mullin before the festivities.Who was in that room? People such as former teammates Mitch Richmond, Tim Hardaway, Sarunas Marciulionis, Tom Tolbert, Rod Higgins and Jim Peterson. Also there was former coach Don Nelson, former coach and general manager Garry St. Jean, former athletic trainer Tom Abdenour, former strength and conditioning coach Mark Grabow and long-time equipment manager Eric Housen.My emotions are my memories at this point in my life, Mullin said. After playing for so many years you say it while youre playing: that its all about the people and when its all said and done it truly is.I remember some good nights and some tough nights, but the people who influenced me along the way is what lasts forever and the memories of those people.All the Warriors players wore a Chris Mullin shooting jersey before the game, and even head coach Mark Jackson greeted the media for his pregame availability wearing one.Mullin received video tributes from Magic Johson and Larry Bird, who were teammates of Mullins on the Dream Team.The halftime festivities were hosted by former Warriors play-by-play man Greg Papa with Attles, Hardaway, Richmond and Higgins each speaking glowingly of Mullin.I came here an apprehensive young man, Mullin said. I grew up right here in front of you. The Warriors fans were a huge part of my success and Im proud and happy to call the Bay Area home.Despite boos from the crowd for owner Joe Lacob, the ceremony went on and in the end Mullins daughter, Kiera, unveiled the jersey from the rafters.

Draymond laughs at Jazz coach Quin Snyder: 'Like bro ... just chill'

The Warriors left Utah with a 106-99 victory over the Jazz.

With 9.3 seconds remaining and the Warriors up by eight points, Kevin Durant was hit with a technical foul.

Draymond Green walked over to Durant and started laughing. Why?

"We were laughing at Quinn Snyder who kept calling timeouts," Draymond told reporters after the game. "Like bro, you're down 10 with six seconds left, it's kinda over my man."

After Zaza Pachulia missed two free throws with the Warriors ahead by 11 and 1:05 remaining, the Jazz got the rebound and immediately called timeout.

After Draymond made one of two free throws with 49.4 seconds left to make it 104-94, Utah called another timeout.

After Steph Curry made a free throw to give the Warriors an eight-point lead with 9.3 seconds left, Quin Snyder used his final timeout.

Warriors play-by-play broadcaster Bob Fitzgerald said: "Utah is gonna use another time out. Quin Snyder is just practicing game-ending situations."

Analyst Jim Barnett responded with: "Absolutely, that's what he's doing."

"Just let us go to the restaurant and have a good dinner; just chill," Draymond added. "That's what we were laughing at. Nothing about the tech ... that was funny. But that's all it was."
