Pippen Wants To Play
Feb 16 – Scottie Pippen is seriously considering a comeback and hopes to play for a contending team in this season’s playoffs.
“I’m thinking of trying to come back for the playoffs,” Pippen said. “Something like the last two months of the season, somewhere I can come back and play limited minutes to start, play point forward for someone and build toward the playoffs. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for the last three months.”
“My knee is good,” Pippen said. “I’ve been working out regularly, doing drills. I see my body like guys like Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar, who played till he was 42) and Robert Parish (who played until just short of 44). My body is lanky and flexible like theirs. That gives me some hope I can do it. — Chicago Tribune
# ‘I think I can really help teams like Miami and Cleveland,” Pippen said. ”Detroit is a contender, too, but they are overstocked and probably have no place for a guy like me.
“I’m not going to be a nonstop high-flyer like I was in my prime. But I can still run. I can still dunk. But most of all, I know the game.” — Chicago Sun-Times
