Franchise History – Pre-Jordan Era
The team’s first season was the 1966-67 NBA Season. They have the best record of an expansion team in the history of the NBA who had advanced through the playoffs. In their first two seasons, they played most of their home games at the International Ampitheatre, before they transferred to the Chicago Stadium.
In the first several seasons, the Bulls was just competitive but not considered an elite team. In the 70s, the Bulls are regarded as a defense first team, led by the specialist Jerry Sloan, Bob Love and Chet Walker, Norm Van Lier, Clifford Ray and Tom Boerwinkle.
They had one one division title. In the late of 1970s and early 80s, the Bulls has hit the cellar of the league. In 1979, they lost the flipcoin that would have get them the future Hall-of-Famer Magic Johnson, instead they acquired David Greenwood as the 2nd pick.
It was the Los Angeles who got Johnson, who is originally picked from the New Orleans Jazz. It was Artis Gilmore who was acquired in 1976, that led the Bulls along with Reggie Theus, forward David Greenwood and Orlando Woolridge.
Gilmore was traded to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange of the Center Dave Corzine, that provided an offensive force around Theus. Along with them were guard Quintin Dailey and Ennis Whatley. As the results continue to disappoint the team, the Bulls had decided to trade Theus to the Kings in 1983-84 season.
