Its that time of year again and basketball is heating up in Chicago as Bulls tickets for the 2011 NBA Playoffs will go on sale Friday, March 25. Tickets to see the No. 1 team in the East will be available at 11 a.m. for Rounds 1 and 2 at Bulls.com, 1-800-4NBA-TIX, the United Center, and Ticketmaster.
A total of eight possible home games will go on sale; four in the First Round and four in the Second Round. There will also be a limit of four tickets per game.
The Bulls also announced the launch of their See Red playoff campaign. Bulls fans are encouraged to show their support for Chicagos playoff run by wearing red to all home playoff games.
All game dates, times and opponents will be released by the NBA after the regular season ends. Refunds will be provided for any un-played home games and if the Bulls advance beyond Rounds 1 and 2, the date of sale for those games will be announced at that time.
On the latest edition of the SportsTalk Live Podcast, David Kaplan is joined Anthony Herron (NBC Sports), David Haugh (Chicago Tribune) and Danny Parkins (670 The Score) to discuss the madness in Chicago this weekend.
The panel breaks down the crazy draft night for both the Blackhawks and Bulls while wondering if Tom Thibodeau fleeced Gar/Pax.
Then, Mark Buehrle had his number retired on Saturday. Even Kap loved it.
Listen to the SportsTalk Live Podcast now.
From the NBA Draft and a crazy Jimmy Butler trade to...Dwyane Wade's questionable fashion choices?
Just another Bulls offseason.
D-Wade and wife Gabrielle Union are vacationing in Paris and the Bulls guard was photographed with a ridiculous doggie man purse thing:
Here's another shot:
Now, take my assessments of "questionable" and "ridiculous" with a grain of salt given I know nothing about fashion (I still wear American Eagle shirts I wore in high school), but c'mon now.
The only thing more absurd than the bag is the cost: $2,600 (!!!!!!!).
$2,600? That's 10 Bulls games at the 100 level! That's a quarter of the Bulls' home slate.
Then again, Butler wore a fanny pack when arriving in Minnesota with his new team:
Here's another shot of Mr. G Buckets' fanny pack:
Also, here are a couple photos of D-Wade and Butler having a grand ole time while chillin' in Paris:
This has been your pointless Chicago sports news of the day. Back to regularly scheduled programming.
