Man finds Bulls championship rings

If you watch Storage Wars or Auction Hunters you would know that it's possible to spend a little cash on a storage unit and make a huge profit. Well, it looks like a South Side Chicago man may have done just that.

According to the Chicago Tribune, 38-year-old Chris Amer won a bid on a public storage locker that contained what looks to be two Bulls championship rings from 1996 and 1998.

"And then I found some Bulls 1996 and 1998 Championship rings in plastic casings and I called my partner and said you won't believe what I just found." Amer said.

One major problem is that the rings may just be replicas according to a statement released by the Bulls.

We havent seen the rings you referenced so cant comment on them, specifically; however, as a year-end gift after the Bulls 5th and 6th championships (1997 and 1998), we sent all season ticket holders a replica ring encased in Lucite. Approximately 6,000 of each ring were made to accommodate every account.

It appears that the locker may have belonged to a friend of former Cook County Board President John H. Stroger Jr. Amer found a golf bag with the name "Stroger" etched on it.

Watch: Former Bulls center Joakim Noah misses everything with this free-throw attempt

We all remember Joakim Noah's twisty-turny tornado shooting style from the free-throw line.

It was funny, and it worked better than you might expect, with Noah's unconventional shooting style from the charity stripe going through the net better than 73 percent of the time over a five-season span from 2009-10 to 2013-14.

But things haven't gone so well there for Noah in his first season with the New York Knicks. Entering Monday night's game, Noah was shooting just 42.9 percent from the free-throw line.

Well, things might've hit rock bottom Monday, with this nasty-looking free-throw try from Noah that missed everything.

Take a look:

Say it ain't so, Jo.
