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.

The NBA announced Saturday that it has suspended former Bulls and current Knicks center Joakim Noah for 20 games without pay for violating the league's anti-drug policy.

He tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement called selective androgen receptor modulator LGD-4033, which is prohibited under the current collective bargaining agreement but would not have been under the new CBA starting next year, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

It was announced in February that Noah would miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury. His suspension will carry over into the 2017-18 campaign with only 10 games left this year.

Noah averaged 5.0 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game in 46 games in his first of a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks.
