SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – One of Jerry Sloan’s daughters found a old warmup suit from Sloan’s playing days with the Chicago Bulls.

Sloan’s daughter Kathy Wood was going through her parents’ house when she stumbled upon full warmup suits.

Kathy tweeted a picture of them on Sunday afternoon.

“Going through Mom and Dad’s house we stumbled upon several full warmup suits and shorts Dad wore when he played for Chicago Bulls,” Wood wrote. “We could not believe how they were so intact. The one Adam has on looks brand new!! We’re so lucky to have them!! #JerrySloan #ChicagoBulls.”

Sloan passed away at age 78 on May 22 after dealing with Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia since April 2016.

He was drafted 4th overall in the 1965 NBA draft by the Baltimore Bullets. One year later he was traded to the expansion Chicago Bulls.

The “Original Bull,” as he was called, was known for his toughness on defense. He led the Bulls to the playoffs in their first season. He averaged 15 points and 7 rebounds in 11 NBA seasons. He was a two-time all-star and named to the All-Defense First Team four times.

His number 4 jersey was the first retired by the franchise.
