Windy City Bulls background
The Windy City Bulls are the G League affiliate for the NBA's Chicago Bulls. The two teams play just down the road from each other as Hoffman Estates, where the Windy City arena is located, is a suburb of Chicago. A contest was held to name the minor league franchise with the finalists being Heartland Bulls, Great Lakes Bulls and the winning name.
The team began its quest to get its own proprietary minor league franchise in 2015, becoming the 19th team in the NBA to purchase its own G League franchise. The team was started just in time to play its first games during the 2016-17 season.
Windy City plays in the G League's Eastern Conference in the Central Division. Other teams in the Central Division include the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Grand Rapids Drive, Wisconsin Herd and Canton Charge. Each is the affiliate for a corresponding NBA team in the NBA's Central Division. The Bulls are the youngest franchise in the division.
Great Lakes Bulls noteworthy awards
The team's NBA affiliate is one of the most storied franchises in the history of the NBA. Chicago won six NBA championships in the 1990s, led by Michael Jordan, who some consider to be the greatest basketball player of all time.
In its first two seasons, the Windy City Bulls had respectable finishes. The team won just under 50 percent of its games in both of its first two seasons, a good record for a new franchise.
Windy City Bulls players
The Wind City Bulls have featured some of the greatest young stars from major college programs around the United States. These players are all trying to work their way up to playing in the NBA. Some former first-round draft picks, like Kentucky star Tyler Ullis, have spent part of their NBA career playing for the Windy City team as well.
