  • Scottie Pippen To Make A Comeback?

    LAS VEGAS -- Scottie Pippen is tired of retirement. He wants to return to the NBA for a chance to win his seventh championship ring.

    With most of the league's stars and decision-makers gathering at the All-Star weekend festivities in Las Vegas, Pippen, 41, announced he's hoping for a late-season return to a contending team -- preferably in a warm-weather city -- nearly two years after he left the league.

    "I know that I have the skills," Pippen said. "I think it's sort of been on my mind the last couple of months. It's just about me going out and polishing my skills."

    The forward hasn't played since his retirement on Oct. 5, 2004, following a 17-season career with Chicago, Houston and Portland. He won six titles in his famed role as Michael Jordan's wingman with the Bulls, and he was part of two gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic teams.

    Pippen has been working out in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., during the winter, and he thinks the time is right to add his experience and defensive prowess to a contending club, perhaps in Miami or San Antonio.

    "This is definitely a stage I can use to get the word out there," Pippen said. "I would only do this for a contender."

    Pippen once was one of the NBA's most feared defenders, and his offensive skills were an ideal complement to Jordan's abilities. He had most of his best seasons at Jordan's side, while his scoring averages and general satisfaction with the game dropped considerably after Jordan's second retirement in 1998.

    Pippen retired after returning to the Bulls to play just 23 games in the 2003-04 season. Chicago retired his No. 33 on Dec. 9, 2005.

    Pippen said he would be open to offers from any team, but also said he would contact a few unnamed teams in hopes of getting the best destination.

    The All-Stars gathered in Las Vegas mostly seemed warm to the idea of playing with Pippen -- or even alongside him.

    "I know it's hard when guys leave the game," Washington's Gilbert Arenas said. "They're sitting there analyzing, and they're getting itchy. If he's ready, he's ready. Maybe I can get another autographed jersey from him.

    Miami's Dwyane Wade also liked the idea of a comeback with the Heat.

    "I'm already playing with [Gary] Payton and Shaq, two guys I used to play with on video games," Wade said. "To add Scottie Pippen to the mix, that would be crazy."

    Yeah, I read this on Yay..

    I think Scottie said he was feeling better than he had in 5 years.. 220lbs and 5% body fat.. damn!

    I'd love to see him back with a contender. I'd like to see him in Cleveland

      well he couldnt even hit a wide open jump shot from the top of the key in the shooting stars challenge so I doubt he'll be able to do anything with somebody guarding him. I hope he doesnt come back. He's got nothing left. He's 41 for christ's sake.

        He's more known for his defence, not shooting jump shots. He would be good in Miami, he's in good shape and they need a solid defender and let Wade and Kapono sink in jump shots.

                    Scottie Pippen should not come back.

                    First of all, he stated that he is better than Jordan, Jordan would be no where without him, and teams would rather have a "Scottie Pippen type player", than a "Michael Jordan type player".

                    Scottie cannot perform. It was evident by the last time he was in the league.

                    Do us all a favor and stay home.
