He is the son of a Coach. Was Mr. Basketball in high school in Iowa. Captain Kirk led the Jayhawks to the NCAA title game, only to come up a little short versus Carmelo and Syracuse. After playing all four years at Kansas (very rare), he was drafted by the 7th overall by the Chicago Bulls, giving them a reliable but under appreciated point guard for seven years. When Derrick Rose was injured, the Bulls got Kirk back. The Bulls have had bad luck drafting point guards in first round, remember Jay Williams.
