Founded in 1966, the Chicago Bulls are one of the most storied franchises in NBA history (due in no small part to Hall of Famer and basketball legend Michael Jordan). The Chicago Bulls boast six NBA Championships (1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998), six Conference Titles, nine Division Titles, and one of the most recognized logos in sports. All six championship teams were led by Hall of Famers Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and coach Phil Jackson.
The Bulls play their home game in the ‘Windy City’ at the United Center which is also home to the Chicago Blackhawks. They compete in the highly competitive Central Division of the Eastern Conference against teams like Cleveland Cavaliers, Indiana Pacers, Detroit Pistons, and Milwaukee Bucks. Some of the Hall of Famers to come through the Bulls franchise are names like Nate Thurmond, Robert Parish, Artis Gilmore, Dennis Rodman, and George Gervin.
