Collection: History of the NBA & the Chicago Bulls

       History of Pro Basketball (NBA: 1966-2020) gives you a year-by-year narrative of how the NBA grew from a small-in-stature regional league to a full-fledged sporting event with a much wider national scope. Note the changes that took place: while the court dimensions and the height of the hoop remained the same, there was the Triangle Offense and use of the the 3-point arc; defenses were no longer forced to use man-to-man; high school grads and foreign stars could now be drafted, and starting in 1992, pros were finally allowed to play in the Olympics. Meanwhile, mergers and expansions fattened the NBA from 9 teams (1965) to the current 30. Note: Your e-book also includes the recent difficult/tragic 2019-2020 season, when 18 teams played an odd tournament before empty courts at Disney World ("Bubble League"). 

      History of the Chicago Bulls 1966-2020 starts at the very first tip-off. The e-book covers all seasons and all coaches, from Red Kerr and Dick Motta to Phil Jackson, Fred Hoiberg and Jim Boylan. The Bulls were very good team in the early going, and players like Butterbean, Long Tom, The Jet, Stormin Norman, Jerry Sloan and Artis Gilmore should not be forgotten. See how the players matched against Chamberlain, Abdul-Jabbar, Erving, Gervin, and Larry Bird. Note: what famous college player did the Bulls  flipped a coin for (and lost) in 1979? Note: Club News includes Bulls' draft choices, trades, injuries, coaching changes, and attendance figures.
