R.I.P. Red and Norm...

'Stormin' Norman' Van Lier

Johnny 'Red' Kerr

Wow. I can't believe that these two Chicago Bulls players/broadcasting legends passed on the same day. Like anybody else who experienced those golden years of Chicago basketball between 1991-1998, both Johnny and Norm were key broadcasting voices throughout it all.

I don't know how many times over those seven years I chuckled at Jordy's pre-game ritual of heading to the broadcasting booth to clap talcum powder in front of Kerr and Norm's colorful pre-game and post-game analysis...but I do know, that they'll both be missed.
