Biography

Bob Love is entering his 13th season as a member of the Chicago Bulls front office as the Director of Community Affairs after being hired in 1992. Serving as the Bulls "goodwill ambassador," he represents the organization at various functions throughout the Chicago community. He makes over 300 appearances every year at schools, charity events, clinics, nonprofit groups and youth programs. As a motivational speaker, he also travels to schools and social agencies to deliver his inspirational message about overcoming a speech handicap and his life as a professional athlete.

Mr. Love played 11 seasons in the NBA, including eight with the Bulls. On January 14, 1994, he became the second Chicago Bull to have his jersey (#10) retired. He was a three-time NBA All-Star (1971, 1972, 1973) and was named to the All-NBA Second Team twice (1970-71, 1971-72). He currently ranks third among the Bulls' all-time scorers with 12,623 points after leading the team in scoring for seven straight seasons.

Nicknamed "Butterbean" after his favorite food, Bob Love was born in 1942 in Delhi, Louisiana where he lived with his 13 brothers and sisters. He attended Southern University in Louisiana and was the first player in school history to be named to the All-America Team by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Mr. Love is obviously extremely involved in the Chicago community and through his current position with the Bulls his duties and obligations entail the following: Serving as a good will ambassador for the Bulls; Representing the Bulls in the community and at all community functions; Speaking to schools, kids' groups, non-profit organizations, and other civic causes on a daily basis; Injecting himself into all community events whenever possible to spread the community relations' efforts of the Bulls; and Communicating with the other members of the Community Relations Department on a daily basis to keep abreast of his schedule, new projects, upcoming interviews, etc. Along with his Community Affairs duties, he is a member of the Bulls' All-Star Reading Team, assists in fundraising for their charity arm, CharitaBulls and volunteers for their many other scholastic and athletic efforts.

Bob Love is an honorary spokesperson for the National Stuttering Federation of America and has been awarded honorary doctoral degrees from Carthage College (Humanities) and University of Rhode Island (Laws). He also serves on the boards of the Chicago Abused Women Coalition and the American Cancer Federation.

A documentary about Mr. Love, Find Yourself A Dream has just been completed, and Butterbean, a full-length feature film inspired by his life story, will be released in 2009.
