Basketball legend and former Chicago Bulls star Orlando Woolridge died in his parents’ Louisiana home Thursday night at the age of 52.
According to Desoto Parish Chief Deputy Coroner Billy Locke, Woolridge had been suffering under hospice care for a chronic heart condition.
Woolridge was drafted by the Bulls in 1981 and played in Chicago for five seasons, before moving on to the Nets, Lakers, Nuggets, Pistons, Bucks and 76ers, before retiring in 1994.
The NBA suspended him for the 1987-88 season for substance abuse.
Rest in Peace Orlando.
