D-Rose and a Victorian celebrate the Bulls' win

The story of the night at the United Center on Halloween was--of course--Derrick Rose's return to action in front of the home fans and his game-winning shot with less than 10 seconds to play.

The morning after, however, another person is emerging as a star of the night: Mikey Gendell.

He is one of the fans dressed in Victorian garb that got some screen time during TNT's national broadcast, but it is Scott Strazzante's picture of the fan after the game that has people talking.

Strazzante, a Chicago Tribune photographer, caught this soon-to-be legendary photo of Gendell congratulating Rose as the Bulls star makes his way to the locker room.

Truly a once-in-a-lifetime--or at least a WTF--photo.

Strazzante also is the photographer who snapped the viral photo of Derrick Rose peeking around a corner in Miami in January.
