The 57-year-old Cartwright played 16 seasons in the NBA and won three championships with the Chicago Bulls from 1991-1993. After his retirement, Cartwright joined the team’s coaching staff and helped the club win once again in 1997 and 1998. He became the Bulls’ head coach for three seasons (2001-03).
