Hardaway was an explosive point guard, but just misses the list
Antoine Walker had deep roots in Chicago and until blowing through his wad of cash was very active in doing charity work in the city. When asked why he shoots so many threes, the three-time all-star once quipped "because there are no fours."
His hilarious "Shimmy" meme threads may not land him on the team, but they certainly have enriched our lives.
Still, Walker was a good player with deep Chicago roots.
Jerry Sloan is one of only four players to have his number retired by the Chicago Bulls, which says quite a bit about what he meant to the franchise. He was a hard-nosed, defensive-minded guard and brought that same attitude to the coaching ranks, where he's become one of the all-time greats.
Unfortunately for Sloan, the point guard crop is simply too deep for him to make the list.
Norm Van Lier had many of the same qualities as Sloan, his backcourt running mate. He was one of the best perimeter defenders of his era and a true Bull. He then went on to imprint himself on the memories of Bulls fans by doing color commentary for years, frequently dropping his trademark phrase "48 minutes of intensity."
Norm always played with intensity, but unfortunately, much like with Sloan, Chicago's deep with shooting guards.
Tim Hardaway was another elite Chicago point guard. The five-time all-star played for 13 seasons in the NBA at a high level, but repeated injuries kept him from ever compiling monster playoff statistics.
Tim is most well-known for his quickness and devastating crossover. When fully healthy and in his prime, Hardaway was an elite player.
