Wikipedia Files: Stacey King

First off, may I just say that Stacey King is a giant? Look at how big he is compared to little ole' me. I would not want to meet him in the paint. King is well-known to Chicago sports fans. He was a role player during the Chicago Bulls first championship run in the early 90s. And although he left Chicago, he has returned in recent years to become the television color-commentator for games on WGN-TV and Comcast Sports.

King is quickly gaining cult status as a broadcaster, due to his playful banter with partner Neil Funk, but also because of his creative and off-the-cuff sayings during the basketball game. Anyone who watches the Bulls on a regular basis has been treated to King-isms like "there's a mouse in the house!" or "If you are scared, buy a dog." It was a real treat to travel to the bowels of the United Center to fact-check the Stacey King Wikipedia page with the real-deal, Stacey King.
