On Monday, Bulls ambassadors Sidney Green and Bob Love will join Bulls radio announcer Chuck Swirsky and point guard John Lucas III along with BMO Harris bank to host an assembly with students from William H. Brown Elementary to celebrate the school being selected as their 2011-12 Adopt-A-School partner.
The Chicago Bulls and BMO Harris Bank Adopt-A-School Program actively support one local school a year by offering assets to the school to encourage students to excel in their studies and help maintain a superior attendance record.
The school will also receive special benefits such as tickets to select Bulls games, school appearances by team personalities and tours of the United Center.
One lucky student will be selected as the honorary ball person for the Bulls final regular season home game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers on April 26.

Bulls Talk Podcast
Any TV show that references Bill Cartwright and Cliff Levingston gets a positive review in our book.
"South Side" is a new show from Comedy Central that "follows two friends who just graduated from community college and are ready to take over the world. But until they do, they’re stuck working at Rent-T-Own. Shot on location in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood, the show offers an authentic look into what life on the South Side is all about."
This isn't an #ad, but you should certainly check it out if for no other reason than the constant Bulls references like the one below.
For you newer generation of Bulls fans, Cartwright played the final seven seasons of his NBA career with the Bulls. He averaged 8.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in 426 games and later coached the Bulls from 2001 to 2004. He went 51-100 as head coach.
Levingston played two seasons with the Bulls (1990-1992) and averaged 4.0 poinst and 2.9 rebounds in 157 games.
No one would argue they were critical pieces to the early 90s Bulls title teams, but they're still making headlines in 2019 for getting shoutouts in "South Side."
