Two Chicago Bulls Legends Die

Patricia Sullivan

On the day after the Chicago Bulls visited the White House, news comes that two Bulls legends have died.

Johnny "Red" Kerr, the first coach of the Chicago Bulls who went on to spend more than 30 years as a broadcaster with the National Basketball Association team, died yesterday. He was 76.
Norm Van Lier, one of the most popular players in Chicago Bulls history and one of the NBA's top defensive players in the 1970s, was found dead in his home just blocks away from the team's arena Thursday. He was 61.

The Chicago Tribune has a tribute page set up. And, because it's a competitive news town, so does the Chicago Sun-Times.
