Sports in Chicago
Sport plays a very important role in Chicago. There are three sports they are really crazy about: The first one is basketball. Like in the whole of the USA basketball is very popular in Chicago. Due to the team of the Bulls, Chicago has reached its present situation as far as basketball is concerned.
Over the past ten years the Chicago Bulls have been the top team. They have won every basketball event, 5 NBA titles included. The best players of the world played for this team, like the legendary Michael Jordan. He is said to be the best player who has ever lived. He is also the person who earns the most money in sports. In the past few years he made about 30 million dollars. Several years in a row he became the MVP, which means he was the Most Valuable Player of the season. He won anything that is possible. Michael Jordan has played for the Bulls since he left College. Some people say that he had already become a legend when still at College. All the players of the team get a lot of money.

Sometimes there is room for more than 80 000 people. For the Americans it is like a national sport. The names of Chicago´s baseball teams are “Chicago White Sox” and “Chicago Cubs”. The Cubs´ new arena has almost 90 000 seats for visitors. It is one of the most modern baseball stadiums in the world. The prices range from $7 to $14.
The Sox is a good team. Many famous players play there. They earn money in the same dimensions like the basketball stars. The Sox also won some national titles. Tikets range from $7 to $40.
