Kendall Gill can add another bullet point to his resume.
NBC Sports Chicago's Bulls analyst was announced as a member of the University of Illinois' Athletics Hall of Fame for the Class of 2018. Gill enters in the same class as his coach at Illinois, Lou Henson, and former Bulls broadcaster Johnny "Red" Kerr.
Gill was a part of Illinois' 1989 Final Four team and earned consensus Second-Team All-America honors the following year as a senior when he led the Big Ten in scoring (20 points per game). He is third in program history in steals with 218.
He went on to have a 15-year NBA career, which included a stint with the Bulls.
Last year was the inaugural class for Illinois' hall of fame.
Joining Kap on today's episode are Jon Greenberg (The Athletic), David DeJesus (CSN Chicago), Patrick Finley (Chicago Sun Times), and David Haugh (Chicago Tribune).
First, the guys preview the all-important series between the Cubs and the Cardinals where the Cubs can clinch the division by Tuesday at the earliest. Plus, should the Cubs rethink Jon Lester's position in the postseason rotation given recent performances?
Next, the guys go over the Bears success running the football in their upset win against the Steelers. Plus, what's up with the lack of production from the Bears wideouts, and what the $%*! was Marcus Cooper thinking on his blocked kick return at the end of the first half?
Finally, Kendall Gill joins the show to talk Bulls Media Day.
