If Bulls rookie forward Bobby Portis never entered the 2015 NBA Draft, he would be entering his third year at the University of Arkansas. But if Portis never played basketball in high school, he would still be playing football.

Portis said he played tight end and defensive end, but he modeled his game after Randy Moss.

The Bulls forward continued to say his favorite football team is the Dallas Cowboys and his favorite player is Dez Bryant.

Let’s hope this doesn’t upset too many Bears fans.
