Chicago Bulls Team History

One of the most storied franchises that saw one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history, the Chicago Bulls have had their share of success. The Bulls were founded in Chicago in 1966 as the third NBA franchise based in the Windy City after the Chicago Stags and the Chicago Packers/Zephyrs (which would later become the Washington Wizards). As an expansion team, the Bulls qualified for the playoffs in their first season, making them the only NBA franchise to accomplish that feat in their inaugural year.

Chicago Bulls Championships

You cannot mention basketball in the 1990s without talking about the Chicago Bulls. During the ‘90s, the Bulls won all six of the franchise’s championships, winning three in a row from 1991 through 1993 and then three more in a row from 1996 through 1998. Led by Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen and coached by the legendary Phil Jackson, the Bulls dominated the decade, with the only reprieve for other teams coming during Jordan’s time away from the game of basketball to pursue a baseball career.

In more recent years, the Chicago Bulls have had some success, winning the division title in 2011 and 2012 but always falling short in their pursuit of another Finals appearance. The Chicago Bulls are the only NBA franchise to have never lost a Finals series in their history and have won multiple championships.

Chicago Bulls Famous Players and Hall of Famers

Any discussion about the top players for the Chicago Bulls has to begin with Michael Jordan, heralded as the greatest player to ever play the game of basketball. During his time in the NBA, Jordan led the Bulls to all six of the franchise’s championships, winning Finals MVP honors in all six, and never lost a Finals. Jordan also earned NBA Most Valuable Player honors five times during his career and was selected as an All-Star 14 times, winning the All-Star MVP Award three times. But Jordan was more than just a scorer, priding himself on being a defensive stalwart, earning nine NBA All-Defensive First Team awards, and the Defensive Player of the Year Award in 1988. Known for his ruthless attitude and killer instinct, Jordan was a force to be reckoned with, both with opposing players and his teammates.

Just as Batman had Robin, Jordan had Scottie Pippen with him during the Bulls dynasty in the 1990s, but Pippen was more than just a sidekick. During Jordan’s first retirement, Pippen led the team as its superstar and performed well enough during his career to earn a spot in the Hall of Fame. Pippen was named an NBA All-Star seven times and was an eight-time NBA All-Defensive First Team selection.

Following the Bulls dynasty, point guard Derrick Rose was thought by many fans to be the next hero of Chicago basketball. Rose was named Rookie of the Year and earned his first of three All-Star nods his following year before being voted in as the Most Valuable Player in his third year. Injuries derailed his promising basketball career, leaving many fans wondering what if.
