The NBA lockout has certainly left fans with a feeling of emptiness, a void that can only be fed by some sort of hoops fix.
Besides the occasional local charity game, fans have been left without an opportunity to see some of the best players in the game today hit the hardwood.
And with that void comes the nostalgic feeling for fans of watching their favorite players play over the years. With NBA basketball in doubt for the remainder of 2011, the game's loyal fans are only treated to airings of Michael J. Fox's Teen Wolf and classic games on NBATV.
That being said, some of the game's more classic contests are clearly some of its best, giving fans an opportunity to celebrate some of the NBA's most legendary players.
Lucky for them, "Steiner Sports" is also taking advantage of the opportunity, bringing select legends to its stores to meet and greet their loyal supporters over the years.
The authentic memorabilia store has welcomed Magic Johnson and Brooklyn's own Bernard King its Roosevelt Field Mall store on Long Island over the last week, providing fans with the thrill they've been seeking during the lockout.
Today another Brooklyn native comes home to New York to be celebrated once again.
Chris Mullin will be at the mentioned "Steiner Sports" location today, Saturday October 22nd, from 3-4:30pm for what's sure to be a special meet, greet, and autograph session with fans.
Still riding the tremendous momentum from his induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in August, Mullin came home this week to be further celebrated at his ala matter of St. John's University, and will also have his jersey number retired by the Golden State Warriors, when the lockout is officially lifted.
Truly one of the area's greatest stars, don't miss out on your chance to meet Mullin today!
