A three point play for Ben Joravsky, who demonstrated the same kind of energy, feeling, and hard work that Norm Van Lier and the 70s Bulls did.

With Horace and M.J. gone, here’s an added hope that the Bulls convince “Stormin’ Norman” to reconsider his retirement and play for them again, especially on December 25 when they meet the Knicks for the first time this season. I’d love to see Van Lier teach Starks, Mason, and Oakley his version of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” on the court. I have a feeling that after playing against Van Lier the trashtalkers would wind up with a silent night.
