Jordan, Bulls read riot act to their fans

June 18, 1993|By McClatchy News Service

The city of Chicago is braced for potential looting and burning tonight if the Bulls win their third consecutive NBA

championship.

Michael Jordan and other Bulls have filmed public service announcements that city officials and all those concerned hope will help.

"I'm very concerned about what might happen in the streets," Jordan said. "It's a major concern. Hopefully, everybody can enjoy themselves in a well-mannered way."

In the announcement, Jordan says, "If we can make it a threepeat on the court, let's not make it a repeat on the streets."

More than 100 people were arrested and 93 police officers were injured last year after the Bulls won the title.
