Growing up, Michael Jordan was literally the coolest, best-dressed, most-successful-at-what-he-does person on Earth. Now he is the owner of the team with the worst winning percentage in NBA history, inspiration for millions of dad jeans jokes and guy who has dance-offs in the club for a friend’s birthday.
From the New York Post:
Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan surprised his former teammate Scottie Pippen for Pippen’s 47th birthday party Monday night. Pippen’s wife, Larsa, planned the secret bash at Chicago hot spot Sunda. [...] Sources told us the fun night ended with a dance-off between Jordan and Pippen to the Trey Songz and Fabolous song, “Say Ahh.”
Growing up as a Bulls fan, I always wanted to see Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen go one-on-one — since Pippen was the theoretically ideal defender to go up against Jordan, it would have been great — but not like this. Not ever like this. I would still pay $60 to watch this on pay-per-view, but still. Goodbye forever, childhood.
At least it wasn’t “Throw It in the Bag.”
Good news, fans of the Dream Team, Chicago Bulls, hyper versatile small forwards who redefined the possibilities of their position and video games that are maybe just a little bit too hard for a normal person who isn’t completely devoted to gaming — Scottie Pippen is going to be in NBA 2K13, along with the rest of the 1992 United States Olympic basketball team.
Want proof, skeptic? Fine. From 2K Sports’ Twitter feedski:
And then there were 12… Are you ready for the FULL ’92 Dream Team?
Also, here’s more proof, courtesy of Scottie’s wife on Twitter, because of 2012:
Scottie is back – check him out on the @2KSports for
#NBA2K13 Dream Team!
Good stuff. Now we can finally answer the age old question of whether or not the Dream Team can beat the Charlotte Bobcats, which is what I am pretty sure everyone on the internet has been asking for the past few months. I’m guessing yes, now that they have a lockdown perimeter defender to check Gerald Henderson.
