B.J. Armstrong Named To Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners

Former Bulls guard B.J. Armstrong will oversee the largest renovation of outdoor Chicago basketball courts in the history of the city.

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel filled the city's vacated seat on the Park District Board of Commissioners by nominating former Chicago Bulls guard B.J. Armstrong. Armstrong will oversee the largest renovation of outdoor Chicago basketball courts in the history of the city. The program, named "Slam Dunk Project", aims to fix to over 100 courts around the city in 2012.

Emanuel said Armstrong should be a perfect fit:

"With his passion for sports and experience as an executive, BJ Armstrong will make an excellent addition to the Park District Board of Commissioners," said Emanuel in a statement.


Armstrong, who has worn many hats in his post playing days, is excited for the chance to work with the city:

"I am very excited to be nominated and for the opportunity to take an active role in improving our parks and providing children and families with a great place to stay fit," said Armstrong in a statement.

Armstrong will continue in his role as the agent of Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose.
