The vintage sports apparel company Mitchell & Ness published a fun story Tuesday, listing the greatest basketball players to wear numbers 0-99.
And on that list were nine former Bulls who wore 10 different numbers that Mitchell and Ness believed were the best ever.
[NBC SHOP: Gear up, Bulls fans!]
And if you're wondering, Gary Payton edged out Fred Hoiberg for No. 20's best player. And the No. 32 Hoiberg wore with the Timberwolves? We suppose Magic Johnson has an argument for winning that number, too.
00: Robert Parish (1996-97)
The 7-foot Hall of Famer will be remembered for his 14 seasons in Boston in which he won three championships, but he also finished his 21-year NBA career with the Bulls in 1996-97. He earned his fourth ring, averaging 3.7 points in 43 appearances. He appeared in two playoff games that year for the Bulls.
23: Michael Jordan (1984-1998)
Probably the easiest decision Mitchell and Ness had, other than the few numbers that only one player has worn in league history. In 13 seasons with the Bulls (and two with the Wizards) Jordan cemented himself as the greatest player of all-time, winning six championships, six Finals MVPs, five regular-season MVPs, Defensive Player of the Year in 1988, and earning 14 trips to the All-Star Game.
42: Nate Thurmond (1974-1976)
Like Parish, Thurmond made his way to the Windy City for the end of his career with a Hall of Fame resume already in hand. After 11 seasons with the San Francisco/Golden State Warriors in which he averaged 17.4 points and 16.9 rebounds and made seven All-Star appearances, he played for the Bulls for parts of two seasons. In his first game with Chicago he recorded the first quadruple-double in NBA history (22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists, 12 blocks). He averaged 7.3 points and 10.5 rebounds in 93 games before the Bulls traded him to Cleveland.
45: Michael Jordan (1995)
Following his infamous "I'm back" press release, Jordan returned to the Bulls donning No. 45. In 12 games he averaged 26.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists for the Bulls. Not bad for a guy who had just taken two years off to play minor-league baseball. No word on how John Stockton was named the better No. 12, which Jordan wore for a single game on Valentine's Day in 1990.
48: Nazr Mohammed (2012-2015)
Yes, really. Mohammed is one of two NBA players to have donned No. 48. The 17-year journeyman has worn the number eight different teams, most recently with the Bulls. In three seasons he has averaged 1.9 points and 2.5 rebounds per game, though he'll always be remembered most for his shove of LeBron James in the 2013 NBA Playoffs. Mohammed is a free agent this offseason and has indicated he'd like to continue playing.
53: Artis Gilmore (1976-82, 1987-88)
Gilmore arrived in Chicago after five seasons with the ABA's Kentucky Colonials. And in six seasons with the Bulls, Gilmore averaged 20.1 points and 11.5 rebounds, was named an All-Star four times and led the NBA in field-goal percentage in 1981 and 1982. He returned to Chicago in 1987 in what would be his final NBA season, averaging 4.2 points and 2.6 rebounds in 24 games. He was inducted into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011.
54: Horace Grant (1987-1994)
The No. 10 pick in the 1987 NBA Draft, Grant played the first seven years of his career in Chicago. He averaged 12.6 points and 8.6 rebounds, helped Michael Jordan and the Bulls to their first three-peat and added a fourth championship later in his career as part of the 2001 Los Angeles Lakers.
77: Vladimir Radmanovic (2012-13)
Remember VladRad? Though he appeared in just 25 games for the Bulls in 2012-13, averaging 1.3 points and 1.1 rebounds in his final NBA season, he made the list thanks to his unique number. He edged out Andrea Bargnani, who has worn the number the last two seasons in New York. The number has been worn by nine players, including famous 7-foot-7 center Gheorghe Muresan.
90: Drew Gooden (2007-2009)
Our trip down memory lane continues with the only NBA player to ever wear No. 90. Gooden spent parts of two years with the Bulls, being dealt to Chicago at the 2008 trade deadline and then being dealt from the Bulls at the 2009 trade deadline. In 49 games he averaged 13.4 points and 8.8 rebounds while wearing the unique jersey that has landed him on a list with the likes of Jordan, Olajuwon, Stockton, Abdul-Jabbar, Malone, Bryant and Mikan. Well done, Drew.
91: Dennis Rodman (1995-1998)
Here's a shocker: Dennis Rodman has done something unique to get him on this list. The Worm appears on Mitchell and Ness' list three different times, wearing Nos. 91, 73 and 70 in his career (as well as the more standard No. 10). During his three-year stint with the Bulls he complemented his wacky hair-dos with No. 91, averaging 5.2 points and 15.3 rebounds, leading the NBA in boards each year. He also won three rings in Chicago before ending his career with one year each in Los Angeles and Dallas.
