Craig Hodges

Sport (Years Played): Basketball (1982–1992)
After the Chicago Bulls captured the NBA title in 1992, they were invited to the White House in the now customary tradition. As a member of the championship team that would go on to meet then President George H.W. Bush, Hodges saw this moment as an opportunity to stress his concerns to Bush about the government's treatment of black Americans in the form of a letter. During the off-season, Hodges was released by the Bulls. SMH, the Chicago front office may tell us otherwise, but we all know the truth.
