Benny The Bull Career Highlights
For more than 45 years, Benny the Bull had entertained Chicago Bulls fans, first at Chicago Stadium (1969–1994), and then at the United Center (1994–2014). He had become just as popular as some of the franchise’s most notable figures, such as players Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, and head coach Phil Jackson. Benny is one of the longest-tenured mascots in the NBA and in all of professional sports. Benny was named after Ben Bentley, the Bulls first Public Relations Manager and Stadium Announcer.
