At halftime of the Warriors' Game on March 19, 2012, Golden State retired Chris Mullin's jersey.
When owner Joe Lacob took the microphone to introduce Mullin, Warriors fans at Oracle Arena offered a chorus of boos.
On Friday morning, Mullin was asked on KNBR 680 about that historic night.
"I had a great night. I really did," Mullin said. "I think it's poetic justice that it turned around. That's what sports is all about. You never know what's gonna develop. If you're consistent and you're disciplined and you work hard, good things will happen. So trying to forecast the future is never an intelligent thing to do."
A week before Mullin's ceremony, the Warriors traded fan-favorite Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut, who was recovering from a broken ankle at the time.
After the deal, Golden State went 6-22 the rest of the season to finish with a record of 23-43 (lockout year).
As a result, the Warriors held on to their Top 7 protected pick and selected Harrison Barnes with the seventh pick in the 2012 draft.
They took Festus Ezeli at No. 30 overall and Draymond Green at No. 35.
The Warriors won a playoff series in 2013 for the first time since 2007, won over 50 games (51) in 2014 for the first time since 1992-93, and in 2015 captured their first NBA title since 1975.
Golden State's success means a lot to Mullin, and although he is now the head coach at his alma mater, St. John's, watching the Warriors from afar brings him great joy.
"I have great pride. I was lucky enough to not bounce around. I only played for the Warriors and Pacers ... it makes me proud that I had a little time with the Warriors, played a lot of different roles. More importantly, I love the organization.
"I've got friends and family in the Bay Area."
