Chicago Bulls Basketball Tickets

It seems like just yesterday Michael "Air" Jordan took to the basketball court and helped bring home six championship titles to the Windy City. The Chicago Bulls were founded in 1966 and, unlike many early teams, advanced to the playoffs their first year in the league. With a start like that it's no wonder that to this day Chicago Bulls tickets sell like nobody's business.

The Central Division of the Eastern Conference team has always called Chicago its home. The Chicago Bulls currently have ownership to a plethora of divisional, conference and championship titles as well as many Basketball Hall of Fame players. Aside from Jordan, other notable past players include Jerry Sloan, Scottie Pippen, Bob Love, Norm Van Lier and Chet Walker.

The Bulls were established in 1966, and though they enjoyed moderate success in their early days, it wasn't until the arrival of Michael Jordan in the 1980s that the franchise took things to the next level. In 1984 the Bulls drafted shooting guard Michael Jordan. From his start in the NBA Jordan set team records and led the Bulls into the playoffs.

Along with coach Phil Jackson and forward Scottie Pippen, Jordan led the Bulls on a string of success that hasn't been matched since. Ever since breaking out in the late 80s, the Chicago Bulls have been one of the most beloved teams in the NBA. From 1991 through 1998, the Bulls won an impressive six NBA Championship titles and were nearly unbeatable.

Though Jordan's retirement left a big hole in the Bulls lineup, the fans stuck by their side and they returned to prominence with the drafting of standout guard Derrick Rose in 2008. He helped turn the Bulls into a perennial contender for the first time since the glory days, and fans are once again packing the United Center to capacity night in and night out.

All teams have their traditions, but few are brilliant enough to start one that goes league wide. The Chicago Bulls began the lowering of house lights during home game starting lineup introductions. Soon other teams in the league followed in the Bulls footsteps. Another institution, despite if it's a home or away match, is donning black socks and black shoes at playoff games. Chicago has a long history of being a passionate sports city, and that certainly applies to the Bulls. With the home team love comes intense rivalry with teams like the Detroit Pistons, Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat and New York Knicks.

It does not matter whether they are up or down, the reviews from game attendees are always glowing. The Chicago Bulls love to give their fans something to cheer about. Whether you are a Chicago native or just passing through, stop by the United Center to enjoy a great basketball game experience.
