Bidding Basketball: How To Be A Superfan In The Central Division

Chicago Bulls

The 2012-13 NBA regular season is right around the corner. For fans, this means it’s time to re-up on your team’s merchandise.

These can be found on eBay. In the weeks leading up to NBA tip-off, Bidding Basketball will scavenge the online auction site’s “infinite inventory of NBA junk” for rare, memorable and/or quirky basketball memorabilia from every team around the league.
