Former Bulls, Notre Dame star Woolridge dies
Orlando Woolridge, the rugged forward who carved out a reputation over 13 NBA seasons as a scoring specialist and one of the original alley-oop artists, died late Thursday at his parents' home in Mansfield, La. He was 52.
DeSoto Parish Chief Deputy Coroner Billy Locke said Woolridge died while under hospice care for a chronic heart condition.
The 6-foot-9 Woolridge was the sixth overall pick by the Bulls in 1981 after starring at Notre Dame in college and Mansfield High School in Louisiana.
