Former NBA star Orlando Woolridge passed away on Thursday night at the age of 52.
Woolridge had suffered from an ongoing heart condition. He died at his parent's home in Louisiana, according to the Shreveport Times.
Woolridge played 13 seasons in the NBA, including alongside Michael Jordan on the Chicago Bulls. He was drafted by the Bulls in 1981 and had his best season with the team in 1985 when he averaged 22 points per game before being traded to the New Jersey Nets.
He retired in 1994 and was inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.
Woolridge, who also had a lot of success in college at Notre Dame, suffered from a substance abuse problem during his career in the NBA. He was suspended for the majority of one season due to violating the league's drug policy. He also was arrested in February for stealing aluminum water lines valued at $2,000.
