Limited Youth Andrew Hawkins Jersey The entire Bulls organization is deeply saddened by the passing of Jerry Krause, Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said in a release from the team. Jerry was one of the hardest working guys I have ever been around, and he was one of the best talent evaluators ever. Jerry played an integral role in our run of six championships in eight years. He truly was the architect of all our great teams in the ’90s. I would not have been elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame if it were not for Jerry. We will miss him tremendously, and we send our thoughts and prayers to his wife Thelma and the Krause family.

Born and raised in Chicago, Krause began his NBA career as a scout for the Baltimore Bullets and also dabbled in baseball scouting but became famous after he succeeded Rod Thorn as the Bulls GM in 1985, after Jerry Reinsdorf bought the team.
Krause managed the franchise as Michael Jordan, who he inherited as a player, and Phil Jackson, who he made the coach in 1989, ascended to elite status.
But his eye for talent also brought the Bulls players such as Scottie Pippen, from tiny Central Arkansas. Still, he was criticized by fans for frequent misses on draft day.
With Channing Frye, Deron Williams, J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Tristan Thompson starting, the result was not surprising for the Cavs. It was, however, what LA needed in order to keep pace with the Thunder for playoff positioning.
ABC and the league, on the other hand, likely saw ratings drop a week after the Warriors and Spurs sat their stars during another Saturday night primetime matchup. Basketball fans not tuned into March Madness got to witness the Cavaliers have season-lows in points, 3-pointers made (five) and 3-point percent (18.5). Not to mention, Clippers stars Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan sat out the entire fourth quarter.
