The Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons had a memorable rivalry in the late 80s and early 90s. The teams faced each other in three consecutive conference finals between 1989-1991. On each occasion, the winner of this clash claimed the NBA title. 

In 1992, the Chicago Bulls set a franchise record of 67 wins. Three years later, in Michael Jordan's first full season after the short-lived baseball career, the Chicago Bulls became the first team to record 70 regular-season wins. That year, they also became the first team to have 3 players on the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

After Jordan's second retirement, the Chicago Bulls struggled and did not feature in the playoffs until 2005. After another lean year, they made the playoffs on 8 consecutive occasions from 2007 to 2015. 

Two players have won the NBA MVP Award in Chicago Bulls colors. They are Michael Jordan (1988, 1991, 1992, 1996, 1998) and Derrick Rose (2011) who, at 22, was the youngest recipient of the award. Currently, the side is experiencing its best outing in many years, sitting inside the top-2 of the Eastern Conference.
