Ever wondered what your favourite Chicago Bull listens to before an NBA game?

Will Lavin

Name that tune.

Tonight’s primetime NBA Sunday Showdown game will see the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Chicago Bulls. Going out live on BT Sport 2 at 8:30pm, the Bulls will host the Bucks at the United Center as they look to improve on their 12th standing in the Eastern Conference with a record of 18-31.

The Bucks are in a transitional period after the team’s coach, Jason Kidd, was fired last week, but they continue to fight for a playoff spot. And let’s be honest, you can never count them out when they’ve got the newly selected NBA All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo in the lineup.

So what’s going to inspire the Bulls to victory? With music a key element of many athletes’ workout regime and getting them mentally prepared before a game, we wanted to find out what it was the Chicago Bulls listen to ahead of going to war on the court.
