The iconic Chicago Bulls of the NBA, have shown an increase in their TV rating so far this year, despite playing many games without their super-star guard Derrick Rose. Ratings are up 3 percent this year, but down slightly from two years past when the Bulls recorded their highest TV ratings since Michael Jordan was on the team.
The Bulls lead the NBA this year in paid attendance, with an average of 21,713, which is 3.8 percent above the United Center's capacity. A great basketball city.
