Synopses & Reviews
The premier reference for making Chicago Bulls fandom a lifestyle instead of just a sports preference, this collection of essential team knowledge and Bulls-related activities distills the past 50 years of NBA basketball into a fun checklist that will appeal to fans of any age. Its one thing to have been to the United Center and rooted for Derrick Rose, to relish highlights of a young Michael Jordan, or even to know that all six championship teams were led by Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Coach Phil Jackson. But it is a whole other level of fan commitment to know who Benny the Bull is named after, which player once grabbed 37 rebounds in a single game, and how the Bulls missed out on Magic Johnson in the draft. These facts and trivia—as well as important dates, player nicknames, key jersey numbers through history, and even the best places to eat before or after a game—are included in this resource that will enlighten new fans and initiate them into proper Bulls fandom, or remind die-hard fans why theirs is the team to follow year after year.
All sports fans want to see their team win the championship but being a fan is about more than watching your team win the big game. As part of an ongoing best selling series, 100 Things Bulls helps Chicago lovers get the most out of being a fan. Get ready to enjoy your team on a new, more involved, level.
