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.
