Bulls offering epic ’90s throwback experience as part of All In Challenge
The Chicago Bulls are putting a unique spin on the #AllInChallenge.
The Bulls are offering the opportunity to relive the glory days of the 1990s with Bulls legends like Horace Grant and Toni Kukoc, among other opportunities:
We’ve accepted the #AllInChallenge! Win a chance to play a full game on the UC floor, see your name in lights, hang with Horace Grant and Toni Kukoc – all for a good cause.
Participants have the chance to win an epic experience for themselves and nine friends.
The auction also includes having names displayed on the United Center marquee, wearing authentic Bulls gear and running out onto the floor as part of a simulated player introduction.
Winners will also be allowed to take their skills to the floor of the United Center while also getting the chance to meet Grant, Kukoc and Bill Wennington.
The proceeds from the auction will go to Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
This is quite the all-encompassing experience, and very timely considering the prominence and popularity of ESPN’s “The Last Dance,” which focuses on Michael Jordan and the Bulls’ dynasty in the 1990s.
Grant, Kukoc and Wennington each played vital roles in said dynasty, which featured six championships in a span of eight years.
Grant was the team’s power forward during the first three-peat, carving out a role as a relentless rebounder and third scoring presence alongside Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
Kukoc was drafted in 1990 but didn’t join the team until 1993 after Jordan’s first retirement. Kukoc won Sixth Man of the Year in 1996 and was one of Chicago’s best offensive weapons in the second three-peat.
Wennington was mostly a reserve, but he provided key minutes in the frontcourt and still has close ties to the Bulls as a radio color commentator.
Plus, winners will have the opportunity to run out onto the floor of the United Center with The Alan Parson Project’s “Sirius” blaring in the background. Not a bad haul.
