The Windy City Bulls put a very cool spin on their jerseys by replacing the text with images of American sign language spelling out “BULLS” as part of Deaf Awareness Night on Saturday.
The G-League affiliate wore the uniforms in a 120-96 loss to the Greensboro Swarm, which came part of a night that included a bobblehead giveaway and an auction with proceeds going to the Illinois Association of the Deaf.

The Windy City Bulls will also auction off the uniforms worn Saturday night with proceeds going to the Illinois Association of the Deaf.
