I'm tellin ya...this day is going to be real interesting:
Mark your calendars. The Jerry Krause lovefest is scheduled for Oct. 31 at the United Center. OK, so maybe Krause will draw his typical mixed reaction when the Bulls honor their former general manager at halftime of the season's second game, against Atlanta. After all, this is the man who used to get booed at championship rallies in Grant Park. But maybe fans also will remember the six championships that Krause helped bring to Chicago when a banner is raised in his honor. Krause has decided to attend the ceremony after initially having mixed feelings about doing so. No word on who will introduce Krause, but Johnny "Red" Kerr is a good guess
My buddy Tim was at the United Center for the Jalen Rose Celeb game, and he said the banner was already up. I think I may have picture somewhere actually...

I certainly hope that people don't boo Krause when he recieves this honor. Although who hangs up a banner for a GM??? Luckily the people at the game will be actual Bulls fans (since who would come to see Atlanta), and not the dopes who always came to the Jordan love-fests when the Wizards came to town.
