Michael Jordan is returning to the NBA!
Remember how exciting it was when you heard that news (the first time, anyway--not the Washington Wizards time)? Well, prepare to be much, much less excited...because Jordan's former shadow-holder with the Chicago Bulls, Scottie Pippen, is doing the same thing! Maybe!
The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Pippen is considering making a comeback and has expressed hope that he would be able to join a playoff contender (one has to assume that this contingency is motivated by a desire to win an NBA title for the seventh time and make it into a few pictures of the event for the first). The 41-year-old plans to display how much he's got left in the tank when he participates in the "Shooting Stars" contest as part of the All-Star festivities this weekend in Las Vegas.
If Pippen really wants to show off his skills, he ought to enter the Slam Dunk contest and impress the judges--including Michael Jordan--with a spectacular move that no one has ever accomplished before...maybe like dunking from the foul line. That'd be something to remember Scottie by.
