Michael Jordan. Scottie Pippen. Dennis Rodman. Steve Kerr. Horace Grant. The list of NBA legends who’ve suited up for the Chicago Bulls is a lengthy one. When you win six championships in a decade, your franchise is forever remembered in NBA lore.

Chicago hasn’t been back to the NBA Finals since 1998, “The Last Dance” in the Michael Jordan era. But even since then, the Windy City has seen its fair share of NBA stars come and go. From Luol Deng to Derrick Rose to Jimmy Butler and now Zach LaVine, there’s no shortage of guys who wanted to play for one of the league’s most storied franchises.

So many NBA stars have come through Chicago, so we completely forgive you if you can’t remember them all. Let’s look back down memory lane at three NBA legends you forgot played for the Bulls.

3. John Starks

John Starks and the New York Knicks were a frequent foe of Jordan and the Bulls during the 1990s. Chicago fans are far more likely to remember the nearly 60 games he played against the Bulls as one of the Knicks’ best scorers. NBA fans will probably never forget “The Dunk,” where Starks posterized half of the Bulls roster.

Starks was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team in 1993, an All-Star in 1994, and Sixth Man of the Year in 1997 — all as a member of the Knicks. An oft-forgotten fact about Starks’ NBA journey? He actually played four games for the Bulls in the 1999-00 season before finishing his career with the Utah Jazz.
