I’m a Chicago native who loves the sport, been watching since Jordan was drafted, college-aged during our championship years and am excited about chronicling what I believe will be our 7th title run! So many blogs and articles exist already about this great team, I’ll try to put my own spin on things. Hopefully I’ll get to attend some games as well! Take care Bulls fans and LET’S GO!!!!!

My name is B. Gatlin, Jr. and I was first introduced to basketball via my mom. Her favorite team was the Mark Aguirre led DePaul Blue Demons. They were making their march to an NCAA title in 1980. My First NBA encounter was the 1981 Finals, the Boston Celtics led by Nate Archibald and a young Larry Bird defeated the Calvin Murphy and Moses Malone led Houston Rockets team.
There was no NBA TV or ESPN at the time therefore the local market sports were all there was to watch on or listen to on radio. Therefore, I’m a Chicago sports fan Bulls, Bear, White sox, Hawks, who remembers the Sting, Fire, and even though I am not a big Cubs fan I am all things Chicago. But for the sake of the blog I am only talking NBA. I have been with the Bulls since the days of Quentin Dailey, Orlando Woolridge, and the “A-train” Artis Gilmore. Things were Bleak at best until 1986 when the Bulls drafted Michael Jeffery Jordan and a star was born and the rest is of course history “G.O.A.T”. I look forward to giving my insight of the current Bulls as they take charge into the 2013-14 season.
