Oscars 2017: ‘Gary from Chicago’ gets offered tickets to Bulls game


If you watched Sunday night’s Oscars then you were introduced to “Gary from Chicago.”

If you didn’t watch it, then here’s a brief background on our friend Gary: He was part of a large tour bus group who got a moment to shine during the Oscars. They got to mingle with celebrities, taking selfies and shaking hands.

Gary was the star of the group, and become somewhat of a social media sensation. Little is known of Gary, but we do know he’s from Chicago. So, taking advantage of the moment, the Chicago Bulls decided to offer him tickets to a game.

We also know Gary has a pink iPhone case, which he gave to Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali to take a photo. The Chicago Bears offered up to replace his iPhone case, which isn’t quite as nice as tickets, but it’s the thought that counts.

“You left Toronto. You’re on the Nets. Be happy there,” Pierce said. “Just be happy. Don’t take shots at Toronto now that you’re gone. Understand you’re a role player.”

If you’ve heard him discuss these kinds of topics before, you know Jackson isn’t one to mince words. He went right at Carroll.

“DeMarre Carroll, why are you even talking?” Jackson said. “If anybody passes you the ball, you should be happy. Play defense. You’re Bruce Bowen. Just go in the corner, shoot 3s and be Wholesale MLB Jerseys happy. You shouldn’t even have an input. You’re not good … He’s not good enough to have an opinion.”

If you stack up the numbers of Carroll, Jackson and Pierce, of course Carroll comes up short. Still, he performed well enough with the Hawks to earn a four-year deal from the Raptors Wholesale Cheap Jerseys back in 2015, and he has stretched out his career after entering the league as a late first-round pick (No. 27 in the 2009 NBA Draft). He can say whatever he wants about his current or former teams.

Just know Jackson and Pierce might have a strong rebuttal.
