Tribute to Stormin' Norman' and Slap to the Face to the Bulls Organization

Let me first say that if it were not for Norm Van Lier, I would think that basketball is a wimpy sport.  Norm told me what the Bulls have been doing wrong for these last ten years.  Most of the time he just pointed to his heart.  Too bad the Bulls didn't listen.

For all these years that the Bulls have been terrible disappointing fans year in and year out, we all found solace in Norm Van Lier who would speak the truth about the Bulls and express the feelings that we shared. The players, the coaches, and certainly the management seem to not have cared about winning for a long time. Norm was the one guy associated with the Bulls who did. Now he is gone, and who do we have? The Bulls had plenty of opportunities to honor Stormin' Normin'. They did not have to retire his number. But Norm always seemed to be left out. The latest example is the Johnny Red Kerr ceremony. Even when the Bulls switched from FSN to CSN, he was left out of the post-game crew initially. There was no appreciation for this man. He played harder than any of the guys currently on the team. Of course no one expected this, but the Bulls should be embarrassed for never showing any appreciation for him. But I personally don't know how much more the Bulls can be embarrassed.
