UChris Mullin walinda ngoloyiko etafileni yamanqaku, ephonononga isihlwele sasekhaya, engaqinisekanga ukuba uza kuthini na kubalandeli beWarriors.



Kwimizuzwana kamva, olo loyiko lwakhukuliswa lulwandle lwemincili. Ngobo busuku bukaJanuwari ngo-1988, njengoko wayebuyela kwi-basketball evela kwi-alcohol rehab, ikhosi yakhe entsha yaqinisekiswa ngokusemthethweni.

Loo mpendulo yandenza ndaqonda ukuba ndenza utshintsho olufanelekileyo, watsho uMullin. Kulapho ndaqonda ukuba ndinethuba lokwenza into entle.





Xa uMullin engeniswa kwiHolo yoDumo yeNaismith Memorial ngolwesiHlanu, unokucamngca ngomsebenzi owambona edlala kwiMidlalo yeNkwenkwezi ezintlanu kunye neeOlympiads ezimbini kwaye ubambe ibango njengomnye wabadubuli abakhulu.

Kodwa eyona nto ayicingayo yindlela awasondela ngayo ekuyichitheni yonke loo nto.



Ubomi bubuthathaka kakhulu, watsho uMullin, oneminyaka engama-48 ubudala. Ngoku ndiyazibuza, ‘Yenzeke njani le nto kum?

Kwakungekho lula, kwaye phantse akuzange kwenzeke.



Ngaphambi kokuba uMullin aziphakamise, kwafuneka aqale awe nzima kubomi obunomtsalane. Impuku yomthambo eyachwechwa yagqitha kubefundisi isiya kubaphakamisa emva kweeyure zomsebenzi yatsiba imbumbulu kwindawo yayo yokwenza umthambo yesikolo eBrooklyn eFlatlands, yaba yinkosana eselula yaseNew York.

UMark Jackson, umqeqeshi omtsha we-Warriors kunye nomthonyama waseNew York, waqala ukubona uMullin kumgca we-layup ngaphambi kokuba amaqela abo aphakamileyo adlale kwaye acinge: Ewe, mhlawumbi ungumdubuli olungileyo, kodwa sinokumnika ishishini.

Emva koko, uJackson kwafuneka avumelane negama elikhulayo elijikeleze isixeko: uMullin unokudlala.

Into endayifundayo njengoko ndandimazi yayingekuko ngenxa yesakhono awayesiphiwe nguThixo, utshilo uJackson, kamva kwikholeji yakhe kunye neqela le-NBA. Yayikukulungiselela kwakhe ngakumbi kunye neeyure azibeke ukuba abe mkhulu.



Umdlalo kaMullin wawusoloko unemvakalelo yee-1950s-kwaye ekugqibeleni wayigqiba inkangeleko ngokusikwa kweqela lakhe lokuthengisa. Uhlawulele ukunqongophala kwembaleki ngokupasa ngendlela ebalaseleyo kunye nobuchule bokuvula loo mtsi ubulalayo. Ngexesha lakhe eliphezulu e-St. John's, wayepakisha i-Madison Square Garden kwaye ekhokela iqela ukuya kwi-Final Four njengomdlali wekholeji wonyaka.

Kodwa konke kwachithwa kunye namaQhawe, owenza uMullin iNombolo ye-7 ikhethe kwidrafti ye-1985. Emva kwamaxesha amabini onyaka angaqhelekanga, apho i-pudgy Mullin yoyiswa ngoonogada abakhawulezayo, iingcebiso zengxaki zavela kunyaka wakhe wesithathu. Njengoko wayephoswa ziindlela zokuziqhelanisa, uMullin wayengasakwazi ukufihla ingxaki yotywala.

Isiselo sakhe sokugqibela sasingo-Dec. 13, 1987. Akakhumbuli nokuba yayiyibhiya okanye isidubulo.

Ndibethe zombini, utshilo uMullin, unyana wotywala obuchachayo. Ngelo xesha ndandingenalucalucalulo. Mhlawumbi kwakunganyanzelekanga nokuba kubande.

Ibali elisoloko libaliswa yindlela uDon Nelson, owayengumphathi jikelele we-Warriors ngoko, wacela umngeni ku-Mullin ukuba ayeke ukusela ixesha elifutshane. Xa wayengakwazi, uNelson wenza ungenelelo kunye nabazali bakaMullin kunye nearhente. Oko kwakhokelela ekubeni ahlale iintsuku ezingama-47 kwisibhedlele saseCentinela e-Inglewood.

Ndamqinisekisa ukuba kufuneka ajamelane nengxaki yakhe, watsho uNelson. Ungomnye wezinto ezinqabileyo ezingaqhelekanga zokujongana nokuxhomekeka kwaye ungaze ube nengxaki kwakhona. Akuba eyicombulula, nanko lo mntu umhle ngaphantsi kwelo qokobhe. Ndandicinga ukuba leyo yayiyeyona nto ibalulekileyo ebomini bakhe.

UMullin uthe abantu abaninzi bathethe naye kule minyaka idlulileyo malunga nokusela kwakhe. Kodwa akukho nanye kuzo eyayibalulekile de wayekulungele ukuphulaphula.

Andizange ndiyifumane, watsho uMullin. Kwihlabathi lokubuyisela, ngamandla aphezulu akuncedayo. Kuya kufuneka uguqule ubomi bakho kwinto enkulu. Nanini na ndizama ukulawula ubomi bam, ndandibubhuqa.

Akazange alilahle ithuba lakhe lesibini.

Ixesha alichithe ethekweni laba lixesha elongezelelweyo kwindawo yokuzivocavoca. Wayebuyela ebaleni ebusuku nenja yakhe kunye nonomathotholo, aze adubule yedwa. Wehla iiponti ezingama-30 waza waguqula umzimba wakhe waba ngumatshini othambileyo.

UNelson wathatha indawo njengomqeqeshi kwaye wanyusa uMullin waya phambili omncinci. U-Mullin weza ukumela i-final yokuqala kwi-Run TMC amaqela kunye noTim Hardaway kunye noMitch Richmond. Ngamaxesha amahlanu alandelelanayo u-Mullin wafumana amanqaku angaphezu kwama-25 kumdlalo kwaye wagqiba umsebenzi wakhe we-16 iminyaka kunye ne-18.2 avareji.

Njengoko unyana wakhe owazalelwayo engena kwiHolo yoDumo, uNelson uzibiza ngokuba ngutata onebhongo. Kodwa akazukuba seSpringfield, Mass., Kuqhelaniso. UMullin noNelson khange bathethe kwiminyaka emibini.

UMullin, owaba ngumphathi ophambili webhola yomnyazi wamaWarriors, wahlangula uNelson kwimfumba yezilahlwa zoqeqesho ukuze asebenze kwibhentshi yeGolden State kwakhona ngo-2006. Kodwa xa uMullin wakhutshwa kumdlalo wamandla we-ofisi ka-2009, uNellie wabonwa njengomqolo. -ihlaba.

Ngandlel’ ithile ucinga ukuba ndinento yokwenza nokubhubha kwakhe, nto leyo engeyonyani kwaphela, utshilo uNelson. Ndamlwela, kodwa ngokwenene yayingaphaya kwamandla am. Ndandingumqeqeshi nje. Yinxalenye ebuhlungu yesiphelo sebali.

Ngexesha elithile, uMullin uthe, abo babini baya kulungisa ubudlelwane babo. Ngoku ayiloxesha.

Kodwa andinanto yokuba nomsindo okanye ndikhathazeke, wongeze watsho uMullin. Ingaba uyadlala ngam? Ngendandisuka phi? Akukho nto ndinayo ngaphandle kombulelo kuye wonke umntu owakhe wandinceda.

Ngoku umhlalutyi one-ESPN, uMullin ufuna ukuba ngumphathi jikelele we-NBA kwakhona. Akayi kuba nangxaki yokuphinda ajoyine i-ofisi yangaphambili ye-Warriors kwindawo ethile phantsi kweqela elitsha labanini.

Ndiligorha, watsho. Ndinguye lowo.

Konke kubuyela ngobo busuku bukaJanuwari kwiminyaka engama-23 eyadlulayo xa wenyuka etafileni yamanqaku ukungena kumdlalo.

Ukuzithoba kuhlala kungumngeni wemihla ngemihla, kodwa omnye uyaqhubeka nokuhamba ngempumelelo. Kwaye nangona iinwele zakhe ziba ngwevu kwiitempile, uhlala ekwimo emangalisayo.

Kutshanje, uhambe ngebhayisekile iiyure ezimbini enyuka iNtaba iDiablo.

Usuku olugqibeleleyo, watsho uMullin, encumile. Ubomi bumnandi.
