Scottie Pippen To Return?

He is one of the NBA 's top 50 players all time. He was a big part of the Chicago Bull's dynasty. He is a hall of famer. He is Scottie Pippen.

The NBA legend has been planning a comeback to the NBA for sometime now. It started when he participated in the Haier
Shooting Stars competition in the All Star Game for the Bulls. The announcer mentioned that he was planning a comeback. From then on there have been hundreds of stories about him and his comeback.

According to ESPN, Pippen told the Dan Le Batard Show that his preferred place to play is in Miami with Wade and Shaq. Other possible locations that Pippen may go are
Cleveland, San Antonio, and the Los Angeles Lakers. Out of those 4, most are saying that he would go to the Lakers. He wants to play for a contender and win another championship.

Pippen played 17 years in the NBA. 11 of those years came with the Bulls where he played a big part in their dynasty. He also played with the Houston Rockets and the Portland Trailblazers. Many can recall that Micheal Jordan tried an NBA comeback with the Washington Wizards in 2001. The comeback lasted 3 seasons and was actually quite embarrassing as he was repeatedly benched for his play.

If Pippen wants to comeback, he better play good because personally, I don't want him to be remembered as, " the hall of famer who came back and blew his reputation". Hopefully, that will not happen. Good luck Scottie
