Former Utah Jazz power forward Antoine Carr revealed that the Chicago Bulls sent Playboy models to their hotel rooms as a way to distract them before Finals games, per ESPN’s David Fleming:

“One thing I did enjoy about playing the Bulls that was different was the city of Chicago was always trying to do something too. You’d be in your hotel room the night before a Finals game in Chicago and all of a sudden a Playboy model would show up at your door with a cake. That happened to me more than once.

They show up in a trench coat, and when they get to present you with your cake, the coat comes off, and it’s ‘Welcome to Chicago!’

But if you’re a young man and all you can think of the night before the Finals is a beautiful girl now, that’s going to throw you all the way off. It didn’t work on me. It was good cake, though,” Carr said.
