NBA Star Scottie Pippen Gets his Bronze Statue
A commemorative statue will be given to Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen. Not all can receive such meaningful memorabilia.Only few are worthy of the life-size bronze replicas. Scottie Pippen was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, and it meant more a lot to him that he’ll be memorialized with his own statue in the United Center.
"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."
Meanwhile, his partner Michael Jordan was happy for him.
Congratulations Mr.Scottie Pippen
