At Pip’s HOF induction this Friday, it’ll be MJ presenting his friend and former teammate. Bulls.com reports: “Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan were side-by-side for countless memories during the Chicago Bullsโ€™ dynasty of the 1990s, winning six world championships in eight seasons. This Friday in Springfield, Mass., they will come together once again to share what will certainly be a bright spotlight. Pippen has chosen Jordan to present him during his induction into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. ‘I canโ€™t think of a better person to do it,’ said Pippen on Monday. ‘Michael is someone I shared my career with, accomplishing most of what I have accomplished thus far. He was a great teammate, teacher and admirer. Iโ€™m excited to have an opportunity to be the first person that he has presented into the Hall of Fame. I figure if anyone deserves to be on the stage with me, itโ€™s him.'”
