1981 – Happy 33rd birthday to Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich who is in his 11th 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 more than serviceable for many backcourts in the league today.
