The Bulls franchise was founded in 1966. It is actually the third NBA franchise in the city. The Chicago Stags were the first (1946-50) followed by the Chicago Packers/Zephyrs, which is now the Washington Wizards.
Chicago went 33-48 in the Bulls’ first season, the best record by an expansion team in NBA history. The Bulls qualified for the NBA playoffs, the only expansion team to do so in its first season. It was the first of many successful Bulls teams through the years. The team’s best years came in the 1990s with the player many regard as the greatest of all-time, Michael Jordan.
Fans can see the Bulls on several nationally broadcasted games on ESPN, ESPN+, ABC, and TNT throughout the season. The complete Chicago Bulls schedule is available for live streaming on CSNChicago.com as well as the NBC Sports app. A regional Bulls schedule can also be viewed on NBC Sports Chicago.
HOME OF THE BULLS
The Bulls originally played in the International Amphitheatre in Chicago, but only for one season. The team moved to Chicago Stadium until 1994 before landing in its current home the United Center. It is the largest arena by capacity in the NBA. United Center seats 20,917 and has standing room to accommodate 23,129 fans.
The Bulls experienced early success in the 1970s with players like Jerry Sloan, Chet Walker, and Norm Van Lier. Chicago won its first division title in 1974-75 advancing all the way to the conference finals before losing to the Golden State Warriors.
The Bulls, who now play in the Central Division in the Eastern Conference, have won nine division titles (1975, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2011, and 2012). Chicago, with Jordan leading the way, won conference titles in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, and 1998. The Bulls also won the NBA title in each of those seasons.
BEST OF THE BULLS
There is no question the greatest player in Bulls’ franchise history is Jordan. The Hall of Famer is the franchise leading scorer, leading rebounder, has the most assists, and the most steals. Jordan was a 14-time All-Star, a five-time NBA MVP, and won the MVP in all six of his trips to the NBA Finals. In addition to leading the NBA in scoring 10 times, Jordan was also selected to the league’s All-Defensive First Team nine times.
Jordan’s teammate, Scottie Pippen, is the Bull’s second all-time leading scorer with 15,123 points. Like Jordan, Pippen was equally adept in all facets of the game. He is third on the Bulls’ career rebounds list (5,726), second in most assists (4,494), and second in steals (1,792). Pippen was also part of all six Bulls NBA championships in the 1990s. He was a seven-time All-Star and was the All-Star Game MVP in 1994. Pippen was also an outstanding defender making the NBA All-Defensive First Team eight times and the Second Team twice.
Jerry Sloan played 11 seasons with the Bulls from 1966 to 1976. He is still among the franchise leaders in points (24,798, 3rd) and rebounds (5,385, 5th). Sloan was a two-time All-Star and made the league’s All-Defensive First Team four times.
