Kyle Long defends himself as a Chicago fan

Bears right guard Kyle Long was commentating Game 4 between the Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Twitter.

One fan asked if he was hopping on the Bulls’ bandwagon.

Long responded to the heckler by saying he was drafted by two Chicago franchises; the Bears and the White Sox. The Chicago White Sox? Yep.

Not a lot of people know Long was drafted by the White Sox in the 23rd round during the 2008 MLB Draft.

Long showed his support for the Bulls during the game with multiple tweets from Taj Gibson getting hurt to LeBron James’ game-winning shot.

At the end of the game, Long gave a message to the fans about how the game isn’t decided on the last play.
