Chicago Bulls created a dynasty. The only team in NBA history to win 70 games in one
season…the only team to win 6 championships in 8 years with two 3-peats in the midst.
During the hay day, the waiting list for Chicago Bulls tickets was frustratingly long. No one
wanted to give up their Chicago Bulls tickets.
The Chicago Bulls arrived in 1966. Success for this team was early. They had the best
record by any expansion team in NBA history. This was attributed to a team that included
Johnny “Red” Kerr and Bob Boozer. The Chicago Bulls tickets were hot even then.
After years of mediocrity, the Bulls drafted someone named Michael Jordon. After 10 years
with the team, the Chicago Bulls tickets paid off. With Scottie Pippen, B.J. Armstrong, Horace
Grant and John Paxson, the team won three championships in a row. Phil Jackson coached
the team to the championships. He had just begun wracking up his championship wins as an
This feat was completed again after the end of Michael Jordan’s retirement. New pieces to
the Bulls puzzle were Ron Harper, Steve Kerr, Toni Kukoc and rebounding master, Dennis
Rodman. With this mix of players, the team pulled off another 3-peat. If you landed
Chicago Bulls tickets during this dynasty era, you were envied.
After the second 3-peat, the team was dispersed, including the coach. The glory days in
Chicago ended. New hope springs in Chicago with the addition of Derrick Rose. Since he
started, the Bulls have had two consecutive seasons with the best NBA record.
The International Amphitheatre was the initial home of the Chicago Bulls (1966, 1967). After
that, Chicago Bulls tickets granted you entrance into the Chicago Stadium (1967-1994). The
Chicago Stadium was Michael Jordan’s favorite venue. He loved playing there. After 27
years at the Chicago Stadium, the Bulls moved across the street to their current home, The
United Center. Called the Madhouse on Madison, Chicago Bulls tickets to the games now
will allow you to experience entertainment galore. Live bands and interactive games are a
part of this night out. Tourists want to take a picture next to the infamous Michael Jordan
statue, which now sits outside the United Center. The statue is a clear reminder of the glory
With Benny the Bull as the mascot, the Chicago fans are true. Benny is pretty athletic and
very interactive with the fans. Since the Chicago Bulls tickets of today are still a very hot
item, Chicago is one of the top teams when it comes to sell-out crowds. Even during the
dry years, the fans made their way to the games in record numbers. The air in the United
Center is electric! The fans are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for the dry spell to
end. With a couple of trips to the playoffs under new coach Tom Thibodeau, the excitement
in Chicago is palatable. The fans are hopeful that when all injuries are healed, this team will
still be on top. Only time will tell.
11-28-13: It was an extremely grim weak in Chicago with the news coming out that Derrick Rose would be sidelined for the remainder of the season after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The team came out defeated from the get-go in road losses against the Clippers and the league worst Utah Jazz before rebounding by blowing out the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. The Bulls sit at 7-7 on the season and their six game road trip finally comes to an end on Saturday night in Cleveland.
11-25-13:After missing all of last year, Derrick Rose will now miss the rest of the 2013-14 NBA season after having surgery for another knee injury-this time a torn medial meniscus in his right knee.
11-22-13: The road has not been kind to the 6-4 overall Chicago Bulls so far this year. The Bulls fell to 1-4 this year on the road after a 97-87 loss on Thursday night in Denver. Prior to losing to the Nuggets, the Bulls had won their five previous games. Chicago will have to cure their road woes quickly as their next five games are all on the road and will also have to do it without Jimmy Butler who is out for 2-3 weeks with a sprained right toe.
11-15-13: After struggling out of the gates to a 1-3 start, the Chicago Bulls took their last two games in deciding fashion to even out at a solid 3-3. Despite star point guard Derrick Rose still struggling to find his shot and offense seemingly difficult to come by overall for Chicago, the Bulls have tightened up their defense to pull back to .500. With the defense in tow, the Bulls will be looking like the tough playoff team they were pegged to be if Rose can start working himself back into elite shape.
11-8-13: Derrick Rose’s comeback hasn’t gone quite as planned, as the star point guard hasn’t topped 20 points yet in a game and the Bulls are just 1-3 through four games. The good news is that Rose looks as good as ever and even reeled in some heroics in Chicago’s second game, as he nailed a game-winning floater to earn the Bulls their only win on the year. Just as important as Rose shaking off the rust, however, will be Chicago’s surprisingly suspect defense, as the normally defensively stout Bulls have allowed 97+ points in all three losses so far this season.
11-1-13: Derrick Rose’s return to the Bulls’ preseason lineup could not have gone any better. They owned an NBA-best 8-0 record in the preseason, showing that they are ready for the 2013-14 season. Although none of those games counted, Tom Thibodeau is ready to put his team in the best position to compete for the championship. Along with Rose putting up solid numbers, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson and Carlos Boozer had fantastic preseasons. Boozer put up more than 13 points per game while Deng shot 50 percent from 3-point and Gibson shot almost 60 percent from the field.
10-18-13: The Chicago Bulls managed to have one of the best records in the NBA last season despite not having their best player Derrick Rose at all. This season he is back and is said to be even better than he was before tearing his ACL in the 2011 playoffs. The Bulls are undefeated at 4-0 this preseason with Rose back at full strength and have four games remaining before the regular season begins:
- October 18 vs Indiana Pacers
- October 21 vs Milwaukee Bucks
- October 23 @ Oklahoma City Thunder
- October 25 vs Denver Nuggets
8-23-13: Derrick Rose back! Derrick Rose back! After missing the entire 2012-2013 season recovering from a torn ACL, the former MVP will be back and ready to roll for the Chicago Bulls when they tip the season off on October 29th against the Miami Heat. After stealing the first game of the second round last year against Miami, the injury-ravaged Bulls fell apart and lost the next four games. The biggest boost Chicago will receive from the offseason is a healthy trio of All-Stars in Rose, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah. While the Bulls lost Nate Robinson in free agency, they did pick up the underrated Mike Dunleavy Jr.
The Bulls open their home season schedule on Thursday, October 31st against the New York Knicks. The Miami Heat will visit Chicago on Thursday, December 5th and Sunday, March 9th. Central Division rivals, the Indiana Pacers, make their way to Chicago on Saturday, November 16th and Monday, March 24th.
Key Home Games:
- October 31st – New York Knicks
- November 16th – Indiana Pacers
- January 20th – L.A. Lakers
- February13th – Brooklyn Nets
- March 13th – Houston Rockets
8-21-13: Free agent center Dexter Pittman has been invited to Bulls' training camp and has accepted the invitation. The deal is non-guaranteed. The 25-year-old 25-year-old, second round pick, won a ring with the Heat in 2012 and spent the last seven games last year with the Grizzlies.
8-18-13: Jimmy Butle hates the Heat and wants people to know about it. He even said that the Bulls must stop the Heat from three-peating this season and also said their rivalry is "crazy".
2013 Bulls Draft Summary:
Round 1, Pick 20: SF Tony Snell, New Mexico.
Round 2, Pick 19: PF Erik Murphy, Florida.
6-12-13: The words ‘blue collar’ only begin to describe the grit of this season’s Bulls roster. Playing this entire season without Derrick Rose, the Bulls were still able to shove themselves into the playoffs and even win a round. Many writers had harsh opinion for Derrick Rose, who was cleared to play on a repaired torn ACL but opted not to. It is fair to assume that the emergence of Nate Robinson had something to do with his decision to not join his teammates during the playoffs but that wasn’t enough to keep the critics off his back. Joakim Noah made the all-star team for the first time in his career but also missed several games due to chronic foot injuries.
2-27-13: The second place Chicago Bulls have still yet to play one single game with their best player, Derrick Rose. At 32-25, losers of two straight, the Bulls are in the 6th seed, two games ahead of the 7 seeded Celtics. The Bulls have been able to put together nice win streaks at different points of the season so far, but always seem to fall back down to earth rather harshly. Last week the Bulls were blown out in Oklahoma City by 30 points and then turned around to lose to a Cleveland team who didn’t have Kyrie Irving. Despite recent blunders, the Bulls are a threat to anyone, come playoff time. Next up, the Bulls will face the 76ers and Nets, both games will be played in Chicago.
11-26-12: Coming into this season one had to be very curious on how the Bulls would fare without superstar guard Derrick Rose. With rose possibly out the entire season the Bulls will have to find other ways to win games. Defense has remained their staple as they are 6th in the league in points allowed. If Rose does come back, expect the Bulls to be back on top of the East before the season is over.
