Not really Bulls-related, other than the Simeon connection between the Derrick Rose and Benji Wilson, but I thought it'd be a nice tribute for what was an amazing player during his time who never realized his full potential. Benji was tragically killed the night before his senior season on November 21st, 1984. Another good article linking Rose to Benji is from Bounce that I thought was an interesting read. For those who are unfamiliar with Benji, he who was shot to death on the eve of the start of his senior season in high school. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Wilson Chicago's led Simeon Vocational High School (now known as Simeon Career Academy) to the Illinois State Championship 1984. During his three year tenure, he was scouted out by many NBA teams. He was killed only days after receiving a full collegiate scholarship to the University of Illinois. His friend and Simeon teammate, former NBA and University of Illinois player Nick Anderson, wore jersey number 25 during his career in his honor.
