Local artist will give your pop-a-shot machine a Craig Ehlo conversion

In March, Chicago-based artist Bae Cutler created a vigil for Derrick Rose's injured knee beneath the Kennedy Expressway. He must have been onto something, because Rose has looked like a superstar during the Bulls playoff run. 

Now, with the Bulls' season on the verge of ending, he's hoping to bring some of that good juju to the squad by way of Craig Ehlo cardboard cutouts. Ehlo, for those who are unaware, was the Cavs player whose defensive lapse gave Michael Jordan space to hit "The Shot" in 1989. See below:

Cutler is selling the cutouts on Craigslist, and he'll even "come over and convert your current pop-a-shot to a limited 'Craig Ehlo edition.'" The market for pop-a-shot machine modifications has to be pretty slim, especially when the asking price on his BandCamp page is $100. 

The Bulls need to win two consecutive games in order to keep their championship hopes alive. This is going to take a whole mess of luck to pull off — the club has never knocked LeBron James out of the playoffs. There has also never been a local artist to sell Craig Ehlo cutouts, so there's that.
