On the road, off the court: Where Bulls play
In a regular NBA season encompassing 72 games, the Chicago Bulls will travel to 23 cities from coast to coast over the course of 51/2 months, visiting a few of those cities (New York and Los Angeles) more than once. Though they travel by private jet (except for a couple of bus trips to Milwaukee), it's a punishing schedule sleep-wise because players and coaches don't leave for their next destination until after a game. With hotel arrival times at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m., there isn't much time to explore their destinations, but players certainly have their favorite spots to land, usually related to family and warm weather.
