This awesome vintage tee celebrates the 1991 Chicago Bulls basketball team. The Bulls, led by star players like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, played against the Los Angeles Lakers in a five game series that the Bulls won 4-1. This was the beginning of a dynasty for the Bulls and the end of an era for the Lakers. The Lakers had won five national titles in nine years leading up to the 1991 season but wouldn't go on to win another championship for a decade.

The Chicago Bulls, on the other hand, would go on to win 5 more championships in a 7 year period. Jordan was named the MVP and was the third player in NBA history to win the scoring title and a championship in the same season. The Bulls had struggled in the late 80s, even though Michael Jordan was one of the strongest players in the league. Under head coach Phil Jackson and assistant coach Tex Winter, the team became proficient in triangle offense, an offensive strategy favored by Winter and Jackson that helped the Bulls become such a strong team.
