Wouldn’t every star player want a Scottie Pippen on his team? A player with Batman-like tools but willing to take the role of Robin? Even during Jordan’s first retirement, Scottie Pippen led the Chicago Bulls to a 55-win season in ’93-’94 and another playoff appearance afterwards, and played an integral role in Portland’s rejuvenation in the later part of the 90’s. He’s a guy everyone wants as a teammate – just ask Michael – and now Scottie will join Michael’s ranks as an NBA Hall-of-Famer and solidify himself as one of the greatest to ever play the game. Pippen’s game was bright enough not to go unnoticed but there’s no doubt that his signature line with Nike was overshadowed by Air Jordans; Nike’s recent re-releasing of 90’s Pippen joints should definitely bring some more notice to the younger crowd, particularly this ‘Eggplant’ colorway of the Nike Air Pippen II. Althought not Foamposite material, the satiny varsity purple finish on the upper certainly plays the role well. Here’s another look at the Eggplant Pippen II and buy them now from shaolin8 on eBay.
