    Already mentioned on the Norm Van Lier thread, but Red deserves his own.

    Weird day.

    RIP, Red.

    Damn. Tough day for Bulls greats. I loved listening to Red call games.
  3. He was a homer. But dammit, he was OUR homer.

    RIP, Red.

    Hard not to enjoy listening to Red. Great passion for the game and the Bulls. RIP to a good one.

    Thought I'd offer up a couple good quotes from Kerr:

    When asked how he would have defended Kareem, he responded, "I would breathe on his goggles."

    He also said, "I knew it was time to retire when I was driving the lane and got called for 3 seconds."

    He'll be missed.

    I saw him a couple of weeks ago, when they honored him during a Pistons-Bulls game. Rest well.
