The Chicago Bulls appear to be basking in the promotional aftermath of a celebrity’s child sharing a name with the country’s third-largest media market. Sunday, Kim Kardashian-West shared images of some free merch the Chicago Bulls sent her for her youngest daughter, Chicago West.
The gifts included a personalized “West” jersey, a Bulls hoodie, and a red bib featuring the team’s signature mascot.

Kim shared images of the gifts via her Instagram “Stories” feed, while writing, “Thank you @ChicagoBulls.”
The gift is the latest connection between the Bulls and the Kardashian-West Family. Kanye West performed during a Bulls game in 2015. Kanye and Basketball Hall of Fame member and Bulls legend Scottie Pippen have been spotted together multiple times, and Kim Kardashian and Scottie’s wife Larsa have popped up in a tabloid headline or two together.
Kim Kardashian-West officially revealed the name of her third child January 19 via her lifestyle app. Their youngest daughter was conceived via surrogate and joins fellow siblings Saint and North West. Many have assumed the name is a nod to West’s native Chicago, Illinois, which he has referenced in songs such as “Homecoming” and “Drive Slow.”
Given that the rebuilding Bulls are barely clinging to life with a 19-36 record in the NBA’s Eastern Conference, it’s probably a good thing that young Chicago has other wardrobe options, including her own personalized clothing.
