PHOTOS: Chicago Bulls Come To Northbrook Court

Annual "Paint the Town" event draws thousands of enthusiastic fans.

The Chicago Bulls held their annual "Paint the Town" event at Wednesday afternoon. Thousands of fans clogged the aisles of the mall waiting in line for autographs and trying to catch glimpses of the players from afar.

Carlos Boozer, C.J. Watson, Joakim Noah, Richard Hamilton, Brian Scalabrine were all on hand to sign autographs. But the highlight of the day for many of the fans was the chance to see Derek Rose, who had just announced his signing of a 5-year, $94 million contract. Fans erupted in a roar as he appeared in the mall and sporadic chants of "MVP, MVP" were heard at times.
