Scottie Pippen To Play Again … In Finland. The Country.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/Terijokipakten.jpg

We know that this isn’t exactly related to the Bay Area, but since we A) are in a Euro basketball mood and B) love all things Finnish, we couldn’t resist: 41-year-old Scottie Pippen is going to play professionally for Finland’s Helsinki-based ToPo team:

Former Chicago Bulls player Scottie Pippen is close to signing a two match deal with Finland’s Torpan Pojat (ToPo), the team said on Thursday.

The plan is that Pippen, a six-time NBA champion and now 41 years old, would play in ToPo in December or January.

“We are discussing details now, such as when and in which matches he will play,” ToPo’s general manager Aleksi Valavuori said.

“He would be the best player ever to have played in Europe.”

He declined to reveal how much Pippen would be paid for the two matches, but said it was not a six-figure amount in euros.

Geez, Scottie, not even making six-figures? If the photo above is any indication—which it clearly must be—at least the 6’9″ black man will totally fit in there.

    The invisible Finnish hand salutes you, Say Hey!

    Since Finnish NBA draftee Petteri Koponen didn’t get an NBA contract yet, he will stay in Finland for another season as the starting PG of Honka Playboys. But here comes something new: Next week Koponen will begin his military service for the Finnish Defense Forces! His military stint will last for six months and he’ll most likely get out of the army next April as a lance corporal.

    But then again, that’s not that interesting.

    Since you’re a lover of all things Finnish, how about these two fantastic Finnish music videos from the good ol’ 1970s? (I recommend you to get drunk before or after watching these videos)

    This previous comment just reveals the writer’s lousy attitude towards sports. Are all American sports fans like this? All you think about is money? Do you think that the only reason to play basketball, or any other sport. is money?
