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.
