“I’m not the guy who’s going to get in your ear, not something I do, maybe because I’m not from here,” said Deng, who was born in what is now South Sudan and lived in Egypt and Britain. “My focus is on what I have to do.

 Though walking down lower Broadway near Wall Street, I did see a not uncommon New York City street scene with a man pulling down his pants and underwear and adjusting his clothing naked while everyone just hurried by. Given it was so close to Wall Street, I also took it for a metaphor for what the country’s financial center has done to the average person.

“I do want to point out that six of them came with the Bulls,” said Obama, a big time Chicago fan. “You remember that, Magic?”

That one had all in attendance cracking up, particularly after Obama turned towards Magic to pantomime Michael Jordan’s right-hand-to-left-hand layup in the 1991 Finals, when Jackson’s Bulls defeated Johnson’s Lakers 4-1.

“It was really a special moment in time that I’m going to always remember that the President of the United States trash-talked Magic Johnson,” said Johnson. “And me restraining myself not to come back at him. He was the only man on earth that ever trash-talked me and I (didn’t) say anything … it was a great moment.”

"When Noah was drafted, [Rick ] Morrissey wrote a column called "You Must Be Joakim" predicting Noah would be a bust, and promising to eat his column, with salsa, if Noah turned into a good NBA player.

When I finally saw the video, one thing stands out: Joakim Noah is not only there watching, but he's up out of his chair, cheering and dancing!

After Morrissey's droning preamble, in which he doesn't really admit he was wrong, but instead asks Noah about how he got so dramatically better (as if nobody could have possibly foreseen this two-time NCAA champion succeeding -- let the record reflect that when Noah was selected, David Thorpe said the Bulls would win a championship with Noah), it gets to eating time.

Noah claps his hands together, shouting "NOW WE'RE EATING THE SALSA! NOW THE GOOD PART!"

Indeed, because of Noah's energy, this is the good part. "

"This disclosure sparked a discussion about our shared love of music. When Red asked for some of my favorite artists, I mentioned acts as varied as Uncle Tupelo, the Clash and Alejandro Escovedo and didn't give it much more thought.

About a week later, Red arrived at the United Center for a game with a stack of CDs in his hand.

"Here," he said, handing them over. "I burned you a bunch of your favorite artists. I really like that Uncle Tupelo. Thanks for turning me onto them."

He was 68 at the time."

"Chicago understood Norm because it is known as the Second City. It is in the flyover region. Norm couldn’t crack the big time and run with the big boys, not among the playing elite and not afterward. But he never accepted being less than them and always was sticking his foot in the door to remind them he wasn’t going away.

Norm was like us. Never really appreciated despite working so hard at it and giving everything he had every time. Norm broadcast harder than some guys played the game, and he let them know it. Someone was speaking up for us, and we loved Norm for that. And he loved us because he understood, if not accepted, rejection."

"It was my dad who helped me let go of my anger. Before he died in 1988, we watched “The Godfather” together. Afterward my dad asked me, “Why do you think the Bulls owe you anything?”

I told him about this and that, slights and slams, stuff that had grown into huge obstacles in my mind.

“Did they pay you on time?” Yes, sir. “Were their checks good?” Yes, sir.

“Well, then they don’t owe you a thing. So get up, stop feeling sorry for yourself, and go to work.”

I swear, from that moment on, my attitude was completely different. I’ve not looked back since."

Awesome article from 1994 re the recently departed Stormin' Norm Van Lier. A little bit of flash, 1970s beanbag bong hits, and some racism that still lingered twenty years (and fifteen years past that).

"There was a time, not long before Michael Jordan, when Norm Van Lier was the best guard who'd ever played for the Bulls and was worshiped by basketball fans all over Chicago."

"On that disheartening note, longtime Bulls broadcaster John "Red" Kerr is ailing with prostate cancer. After working the microphone for the first seven or eight games this season, the 33-year veteran and expansion team's original coach (of the year, 1966-67, gaining entry to the playoffs) was forced to stay close to home.

A ceremony honoring Kerr's service to the franchise has been moved up from April to the second week of February. A statue in his likeness, sculpted by the same artist who carved Michael Jordan's image, will be placed outside the United Center in the same vicinity as His Airness.

Conspicuously absent from the Hall of Fame as a contributor, Kerr was a better-than-average center (13.8 points, 11. 2 rebounds) for 12 seasons with Syracuse, Philadelphia and Baltimore. His biggest achievement in my eyes, though, was recognizing the greatness of Julius Erving and George Gervin as GM of the ABA Virginia Squires long before anyone else."
