Like it or not, The Bulls glory days of Pippin's flat top, MJ's dunking with his tongue, Bill Cartwright's rainbow free throws, and Beef Wennington, the McDonalds specialty burger named after Bull's oafish center Bill Wennington, ARE OVER.
But we're tired of hearing fans whine about the glory days, because this new young Bulls squad is one of the most exciting acts to watch in the NBA. Not to mention that lots of new b-ball innovations since then have made the game far more exciting since the 90s. Today players can dribble between their legs, pass behind the back, and do vertical 540 dunks with their feet.
Today's Chicago Bulls are a truly spectacular, multi-media spectacle, starting with the dim lights & analogue synths of game intro song Eye in the Sky by Alan Parson's Project, and culminating in the exciting "cosmic basketball" 4th quarter, where blacklights and lasers illuminate the players' glowing headbands & sneakers.
And this year, at this intersection of Harlem Globe Trotters and Daft Punk, we find rookie sensation and hometown hero, Derrick Rose. The future face of the NBA, this seven-armed point guard phenom looks disturbingly like Hindu deity Vishnu, but in fact is the homegrown former star of South Side's Simeon Career Academy High School.
If you've never heard of the Chicago Bulls or basketball, the New York Times calls them "spectacular." Chicago's own Sun Times calls basketball "awesome."
Seats are in or around the first seven rows of the 308 section. That's the upper tier, but basketball players are extremely large and if you were closer to them it would be uncomfortable.
