Quintin Dailey RIP

Former Chicago Bull Quintin Dailey died last week at age 49. He was a talented player but a personal disaster, missing a bunch of games for drug violations and getting into other criminal trouble. The Bulls tolerated his issues until he started complaining about the attention Michael Jordan received, essentially ending his time in Chicago.

Quintin Dailey's defining moment in a Bulls uniform occurred in a 1985 game against the Spurs. During the game, he borrowed money from a reporter and sent a ballboy to the concession stand to get a slice of pizza. Dailey ate the pizza at the end of the bench and coach Kevin Loughery went nuts. The Bulls lost 106-98.
