Horace Grant, who serves as special advisor to president and chief operating officer Michael Reinsdorf, says Chicago doesn’t need any drastic moves to reach the postseason. In a video posted on CSNChicago, the former Bull says the team just needs its key players to stay healthy. “I wouldn’t worry about trading anyone,” Grant said. “I wouldn’t worry about trading Jimmy or anything. I will find a way with the pieces that we have now, which I sincerely think that we’re going to make the playoffs, that we’re going to make a push.”
What was the initial reason for the goggles? And did you keep them because you had to, or did you like the look? Horace Grant: I got them because I was legally blind. I wore em because of that for a few years. After a few years I got Lasik surgery, but I kept wearing them without the perscription lenses because I had grandparents and parents come up to me and thank me for wearing them. Their kids and grandkids would get made fun of by wearing protective eyewear playing sports, so I kept wearing them to help make it cool to wear goggles for the kids.

Though Jerami and Jerian Grant periodically went to Horace’s games growing up – and spent some summer days working out with him in the offseason – they picked up more pointers in the locker room than in the paint. They gained as much from osmosis as instruction. “You get to see the ins and outs,” Jerami Grant said. “You get to see how the guys act (in the locker room), what to do and what not to do. That was the biggest advantage that I got from being around an NBA family.”
