Chicago Bulls Tickets
Chicago Bulls Tickets
Since joining the NBA in 1966, the Chicago Bulls have become one of the league's most successful franchises. The Bulls emerged as a championship contender after drafting Michael Jordan in 1984 and Scottie Pippen in 1987. With Jordan and Pippen leading the way, Chicago won three straight NBA titles from 1991 to 1993 and repeated the feat again from 1996 to 1998 when Jordan returned to play following a brief retirement. Jordan is still considered one of the most dominant NBA players of all time after leading the league in scoring 10 times and being named NBA MVP five times while playing for the Bulls.
United Center, Home to the Chicago Bulls
Located just minutes from downtown Chicago, the United Center is home to the Chicago Bulls. The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on August 18, 1994. The United Center is the largest arena in the United States at 960,000 square feet and hosts over 200 events every year, including about 100 home games of the Chicago Bulls. The entrance to the arena features one of Chicago's most famous landmarks, the 17-foot Michael Jordan statue cast in bronze. This statue was unveiled on November 1, 1994 during a ceremony when the basketball star retired his number 23.
Chicago Bulls and the Eastern Conference
As members of the Central Division in the Eastern Conference, the Chicago Bulls compete against the Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons, and Cleveland Cavaliers. Before the Michael Jordan era, the Bulls had captured only one division title in 1975 as members of the Midwest Division. With the help of the Hall of Fame player, however, the team won six division titles, six conference championships, and six NBA titles. After the Jordan years, the team struggled but have since won two additional Central Division titles.
Chicago Bulls 2012 Team Outlook
It is safe to say the Chicago Bulls are a legitimate NBA-title contender for the first time since the Michael Jordan era. Chicago looks to build off a season where Derrick Rose emerged as a certified superstar and took home NBA MVP honors. Rose did a little bit of everything in 2010-11, averaging 25.0 points and 7.7 assists in leading the Bulls to a league best 62-20 record. Joakim Noah emerged as a defensive force in the post and was good for 11.7 points and 10.4 rebounds despite sitting out much of the season with injuries. Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng will be counted on again to share the scoring load. Boozer averaged 17.5 points and 9.6 rebounds after signing as a free agent from the Utah Jazz. Deng chipped in 17.4 points per game. If the Bulls stay healthy, there is no reason to expect any drop-off from Chicago this season.
