The Chicago Bulls are based at Chicago, Illinois and participate in the central division of the Eastern Conference in the NBA. The team was established in the year 1966, and is actually the third NBA team in Chicago. The team boasts of a glorious past where it has benchmarked few victories as one of the most amazing games in the history of American basketball. Thus, the team is one of the most popular and acknowledged dynasties in the NBA. The team has registered a seventy two win record with winning 70 games in a single season. The popularity of the team can be gauged by the fact that the appearance of the Bull’s championship during the 1998 NBA finals on television witnessed the highest viewership in the history of the NBA.
Chicago Bulls first played in the 1966-67 season and started its victorious journey. The team was successful in posting the best record by an expansion team in the history of NBA. Earlier the team played majority of their home games but then gradually they shifted all their games to the stadium of Chicago. During their early days, the team could not register as warriors as they tried to assemble the pieces to be competitive enough to give a commendable fight. In fact, they got themselves famous for being a strong and tough defensive team. Even though the team boasted of players like Jerry Sloan and Clifford Ray, yet it was not able to project themselves as a winning team.
It was only by the late seventies when the team started commanding respect in the basket ball fraternity as not only a defensive team but one which has the potential to win any game. It was only with the loss in a coin flip, where they settled for selecting David Greenwood as a second choice, which proved to be the winning factor for the team in the days to come. David Greenwood who played as the forward player made the team win continuously and since then the team never looked back.
