With free agency and trades changing the complexion of the NBA, lets take a look at the top five Chicago Bulls players who looked weird in another uniform.

Long before he entertained Bulls fans with his post and pre-game analysts, “Stormin' Norman” was a tenacious defender and fan favorite in Chicago throughout the 1970s. After seven seasons with the team, he was waived by the Bulls in 1978. Van Lier would later retire in 1979, but not after appearing in 38 games for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Another fan favorite in Chicago is Kirk Hinrich. Known for being a gritty defender who would never shy away from contact, Hinrich was traded to the Wizards in 2010 in order to clear cap room. Although he would later return to the team in 2012, the image of Hinrich in a Wizards jersey is etched in the minds of Bulls fans everywhere.

Legend Bob “Butterbean” Love made a name for himself in Chicago with Dick Motta's Bulls throughout the late 1960s through the 1970s. Love was a three-time All-Star and two-time All-Defensive player for the Bulls, but it all came crashing down when Love was traded in 1976 to the New York Nets.

2. Michael Jordan (Washington Wizards)

It was definitely weird watching Jordan lace it up for another team not named the Bulls. When Jordan took over as part owner of the Washington Wizards, it was only a matter of time until No. 23 would put on a Wizards jersey. Bulls fans can forgive him with all of the championships he gave to Chicago.

1. Scottie Pippen (Houston Rockets)

Yes, Scottie finally gets the nod over Michael — at least on this list. When Pippen joined the Houston Rockets in the lockout-shortened season in 1999, it came just six months after winning his sixth and final championship as a member of the Bulls. It was far too painful for any die-hard Bulls fan to watch.
