Pippen to the Hall

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 7:53 AM

Scottie Pippen earned a position among the NBA basketball elite with his induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Scottie Pippen was raised in Arkansas, but he grew up in Chicago, where he achieved more than he imagined he could when he arrived in 1987.

From those humble beginnings at Hamburg (Ark.) High School and the University of Central Arkansas, Pippen made one quantum leap after another: the fifth pick of the 1987 NBA draft, wingman for Michael Jordan, six NBA titles, seven All-Star Games, 10 All-Defensive Teams, All-Star Game MVP, one of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players, Dream Team gold-medal winner.

The man could play.
