Scottie Pippen Tribute: Pippen Ain’t Easy!
It’s hard out here for a Pip.
In 2015, Shaq called Scottie Pippen nothing more than a sidekick during a (very amusing) war of online words. A lot of people on the internet took Shaq’s side and I’m assuming those are the same type of people who considered Kobe nothing more than a Shaq sidekick during the Lakers 00 dynasty era. Pippen sees himself as “LeBron before LeBron.” I don’t think he’s either, but I do think the 7 x NBA game-changing All-Star with 6 rings and 8 All-NBA 1st Defense Honors on his resume does deserve way more love and credit than he’s usually given – especially today.
The member of the NBA’s Top 50 All-Time team turns a year wiser today, so in honor of the great Chicago Bull, who is married to the great looking Larsa Pippen and produced as many nasty looking posters as anyone in NBA history, here’s a collection of some of the Hall of Famer’s greatest moments.
