The Chicago White Sox congratulated the newest Bulls draftee on Twitter.
The Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls are always going to be connected. It starts at the top because of the fact that Jerry Reinsdorf owns both teams. For a lot of the things that one organization does, the other is on the same page. It is really cool that both teams have these things in common because it bonds two teams that mean a lot to people in the great city of Chicago.
The fact that Michael Jordan played for both organizations means a lot as well. Obviously, with the Chicago Bulls, he became the greatest basketball player who ever lived. He won the NBA Championship a grand total of six times with the Bulls. He had two three-peats with the Bulls and in between them, he played baseball in the Chicago White Sox organization.
He never reached Major League Baseball but he got to play in the minors for a while. The MLB was also in the middle of a player strike right when he decided to play. Some actually believe that he would have reached the Majors if he stuck it out but he went back to the NBA and was even better the second time around.
In 2020, the Bulls aren’t even remotely successful. They just hired a whole new President, GM, and coach that all look promising but they have a long way to go. It started with the 2020 NBA Draft where they selected Patrick Williams out of Florida State University. He is a 6’8″/225 lbs small forward that the Bulls are hoping is able to become a really good player for them.
As you can see, the White Sox were right there to congratulate him on Twitter when the selection was made. It is one thing to see the Chicago teams interact with each other but it is even cooler to see them support each other. This was a very nice gesture that the White Sox made towards their basketball friends.
The Chicago White Sox have a very bright future. Of the five major sports teams in Chicago, theirs is absolutely the brightest. The Chicago Bulls are at the lowest point of them all but their arrow is pointing up. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, and Chicago Blackhawks all have arrows pointing down. If the Bulls are able to complete a solid rebuild and land a big-time free agent, they could run the city with the White Sox.
