I"m ticked off as hell that nba.com didn't show the halftime. They showed that freak of a broadcaster licking Chris Weber for 10 minutes.

Bah, my vcr isn't hooked up and I'm not staying up that late.

I saw they have a couple short clips of it on the comcast sports chicago site, but not the whole thing. Hopefully they'll put it there or on the Bulls site, or maybe it'll end up on youtube.

Obama will do anything to get his picture into the media won't he? His publicity team is working overtime. Sickening if you ask me.

Great tribute to Red. ESPN should have had that game televised. Didn't realize he was in that bad of shape. He IS the Chicago Bulls

Somebody should have told Norm Van Lier that last night was for Red Kerr, not him. Therefore he should stop whining about not receiving an invitation. His time was almost 40 years ago, and if it wasn't for the Bulls pregame and postgame shows, he would be living a life in obscurity.

I was never a big fan of Kerr's coaching or announcing. Dick Klein brought him in because he worked cheap. Typical Chicago sports scheme. Nice to see that he got a nice tribute for his years of torture watching this terribly run franchise.Though I do have new respect for him seeing as he didn't want that fat Pig Jerry Krause there.

Van Lier SHOULD have been invited.

I was at the game last night, and it was truly remarkable. seeing Kerr's former personnel there to support him was amazing. With former stars coming to the UC for the support showed his true commitment to the team. Nearly everyone got a standing ovation, except that horrible, scared,GM stood up. I was one of possibly a few to yell out get Amar'e. Being in the nosebleeds I doubt he heard me, but belting my frustration with his terrbile team management, it felt good to release it. All in all, the tribute was to Johnny "Red" Kerr and the accomplishments he not only made to the Bulls organization, but also to the NBA.

You are a moron. Obama is a Bulls fan, and real Bulls fans know that Kerr is a huge part of this organization. It's kind of appalling that you seem to be upset at the fact that, before his death, Red Kerr got to be addressed by the president... I'm sure it felt great for him.

Did all the other white trash up there react the way you did?

Why don't you take some eggs down to a Bulls' practice and throw a few at Paxson as he's coming out to his car, or are you too much of a puscy?
