Former Bulls Broadcaster

Former long-time Chicago Bulls play-by-play man, Tom Dore.

Our discussion includes Tom’s native Illinois, his time at Missouri University and subsequent journey to France and New Zealand where he played basketball professionally. We talk about Andrew and Lindsay Gaze (Australia’s own basketball royalty), how Tom became a broadcaster for the Bulls and his association with two of the all-time greats; Jim Durham and Johnny ‘Red’ Kerr (both RIP). We also discuss his relationship with Michael Jordan and unearth some fantastic MJ stories.
