Yesterday, Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa was seen attending Chicago Bulls practice. That is a very interesting piece of news because that means he is still in Chicago following his team’s four-game loss to the Houston Astros in the American League Division Series. It is always fun to see other Chicago sports figures supporting the other teams.
The relationship between the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls seems strong. Of course, they are both owned by Jerry Reinsdorf so it makes perfect sense. They are also the two professional sports organizations that are relevant in the career of Michael Jordan. It is a lot of fun to think of those days and what it would be like if something like that happened now.
The Bulls are an awesome team this year. After many years of struggling, they are off to one of the best starts in franchise history. At 4-0, they have the best record in the entire Eastern Conference as they are the only team without a loss.
A lot of that is a result of their new roster. They had Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic last season after landing Vucevic in a big trade. They also added some awesome players over this past summer like Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan, and Alex Caruso.
They also have a few young players that were drafted over the last two years like Patrick Williams and Ayo Dosunmu who are looking to make an impact over the next few years. All of the sudden, they are one of the more exciting teams to watch.
Tony La Russa of the Chicago White Sox was seen at the Chicago Bulls practice.
It is fair to wonder why Tony La Russa might be there. He probably just loves sports and we all know about his relationship with Jerry Reinsdorf. He might see some similarities between the Bulls and White Sox as they are both young teams that have lots of potential over the next few years.
It may be another year or two before either of them are legit title contenders but you just never know. Hopefully, Tony is able to get his guys going next season so that they can make a deep run in the playoffs.
It will be a lot of fun for fans of these two teams as they are the two best men’s professional sports teams in town and it really isn’t even close. It would be nice to see the Bulls be a fun team to watch while we wait for spring training to get underway.
