Another pretty easy choice as the Bulls match up with a team that played their home games in the swamps of the New Jersey Meadowlands up until a couple of years ago. This is a pretty ambitious recipe, so give yourself plenty of time to finish in time for tipoff. And maybe make a lot of it because the Hall is really, really good.
