Chris Mills


Christopher Lemonte Mills (born January 25, 1970) is a retired American professional basketball player.

He was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers as the 22nd overall pick in the 1993 NBA Draft, and played four seasons for the Cavs. Mills then played for the New York Knicks for the 1997–98 season and then the Golden State Warriors for five seasons. He was listed as a member of the Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks but never actually played a game for any of them. He was a solid defender on the wing and a decent shooter. Mills also had several problems with his health in his late career and was not a stellar athlete, ultimately being a solid back-up off the bench.

In 1999, in a game against the Dallas Mavericks, after a jump ball, Mills attempted to make a basket, but on the wrong side of the court. Amazingly, his shot was blocked by opposing player Samaki Walker.
