1981 – Happy 32nd birthday to Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich who is in his 10th NBA season. He spent his first seven seasons with the Bulls and then played for the Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks before returning to Chicago for 2012-13.

Although Hinrich’s production has declined over the last few years, he still would be very serviceable for many backcourts in the league today.
