A recent post by former Gophers and Duluth East basketball star Rick Rickert on Facebook: “Just got back from practice with our new coach, Bill Cartwright. I remember him playing for the Bulls and winning the ’93 NBA Championships with Trent Tucker and Michael Jordan. It’s awesome playing for him (and crazy having a coach taller than me!) — with Trent Tucker.”
