As a ball boy for the Bulls from 1994-1997, Jason Franklin has stories. Not everyone can claim Scottie Pippen drove you in his Ferrari to your first date. After Franklin, who grew up in Deerfield but now lives in L.A., had that introduction to the sports world, it's no surprise he never wanted to move too far away from it.
