While many of the most venerable basketball teams in the NBA were founded just after World War II, the Chicago Bulls are a relatively recent arrival, formed in 1966. Its first star was forward Bob Boozer; Artis Gilmore from the ABA followed in 1976. But it was the arrival of Michael Jordan in 1984 that made the Bulls a late-20th-century basketball dynasty. From 1991 to 1993, with former New York Knicks forward Phil Jackson as coach, the Bulls won three NBA championships in a row, thanks to Jordan’s scoring and strong play from the likes of Scottie Pippen, B.J. Armstrong, and Horace Grant. The team's second three-peat during the 1996-1998 seasons were also anchored by Jackson, Jordan, and Pippen, with help from players such as Dennis Rodman.
