A Look Back: Nike Air Pippen Signature Series

A Look Back: Nike Air Pippen Signature Series

SHARE

Last night the Chicago Bulls disassembled the Boston Celtics in a 97-81 victory, proving the new-look Bulls to be one of the upcoming Eastern powerhouses in the league.

During halftime, Chicago unveiled its latest bronze masterpiece in front of the sold out crowd commemorating the retried NBA Hall of Famer’s career as a Bull. The dynamic duo that was Jordan and Pippen brought two three peat championship runs to the Windy City and formed one of the most entertaining dynasties to have ever grace the hardwood.

Scottie has had numerous accomplishments during his NBA tenure; 2 Olympic Gold Medals, 6 NBA Championships, 7 All-Star Game appearances, named one of the 50 greatest players of all time in ‘96, a retired jersey number, inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame last year & ranked 2nd in NBA history with 208 Playoff appearances just to name a few.

Now that Scottie has finally gotten his shine on, literally, let’s take a look back at his signature line (albeit short lived signature line) under the Nike umbrella. Besides Penny’s signature, could the Nike Air Pippen line be one of the best short lived signature series of all time?

Share your thoughts with us in the comments section & congratulations to Scottie Pippen for a job well done.

    I have had the wonder opportunity to watch Scottie Pippen play. Scottie was a wonderful talent on and off the court. When Michael went to play baseball it was Scootie who held the Bulls together.
    When MIchael came back from baseball it was Scottie Pippen who welcomed Mj back with open arms.
    I never felt Scottie was in Michaels shadow. I feel they both completed one another. They was like peanut butter and jelly.
    Now they both are retired from the game. You wonder what might have been? What would of happen if they all meaning Michael, Scottie, and Dennis, and Phil all stayed together after the last title run? Well only God knows that.

    Let’s celebrate a wonderful man, athlete, and person.
    I wish Nike would release every Air Pippen shoe and put it on Nike Id.

    Thank you Scottie Pippen for all you have done to advance the game we so much love.
    Congrats on the hall of fame, and congrats on everything.
    You deserve it all.

    I think juan said it best ,but I also think that pippen was pretty quiet you never heard him complain about more money or even try to out do jordan and I think he could hold his own on any given night.
