Bulls to give Scottie Pippen a statue outside United Center. Yes, same size as Jordan's.

Thumbnail image for jordan-pippen.jpgIt’s been a good month to be Scottie Pippen.

First, he gets to bask in the spotlight of the Hall of Fame inductions, without the looming shadow of Michael Jordan in his way. Now, he gets his own statue outside the United Center. It will be unveiled at some point near the end of this upcoming season, according to the official release from the Bulls.

“Words really can’t express my feelings,” Pippen told Bulls.com. “It’s an unbelievable honor and truly amazing. It’s something you dream of as a kid growing up, but you can never foresee those childhood fantasies becoming reality. You see statues of individuals who have done great things and made their mark on history, but as a basketball player, you never really think about arriving at this point. It’s an amazing honor for the Chicago Bulls to do this for me.”

It’s a deserved honor, Pippen is at the heart of the Bulls legacy, right next to Jordan. He is guy with six rings, named one of the 50 greatest players of all time and is a Hall of Famer. A statue seems appropriate. And one not located where the shadow of the Jordan statue is cast across it at any point.

    I think he would rather have the money is costs to build the statue.

    Doubtful. Only an idiot would rather have money.

    Do I have to repeat it then or are you under the impression scottie pippen isnt an idiot? Who else could make the money he made and now be basically flat broke.

    Feel free to do some research, clown. The statue will be INSIDE the United Center and the story (in either Chicago newspaper or on Bulls.com) says nothing about the size of the statue. I used to like this site, but now it’s turning into some kind of amature hour.
