Scottie Pippen’s hilarious description on ESPN’s The Jump
Chicago Bulls legend and NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen is a frequent guest on ESPN’s The Jump. The six-time champion provides great insight and analysis on the game since he played it at the highest level.
When you think of Scottie Pippen, you think about him being Michael Jordan’s sidekick with the Bulls during their championship run during the ’90s. But, you can also think about his nasty poster dunk on New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing.
In case you forgot about that vicious dunk, ESPN is here to remind you about it:

“Dunked on Patrick Ewing really hard.”

That is one of the best dunks in NBA history. Patrick Ewing was not an easy guy to dunk on, but Scottie Pippen didn’t care and got the best of Ewing on that day.
Pippen was named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history. The seven-time All-Star had career averages of 16.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 1,178 games. He made the All-Defensive team a staggering 10 times, was the 1994 All-Star game MVP and the 1995 steals champion.
Pippen and Jordan went 6-0 in the NBA Finals with the Bulls and are arguably the greatest duo in the history of the game. Patrick Ewing, who is also in the Hall of Fame, is probably laughing somewhere reading this headline.
