Pippen back in basketball in Finland

Scottie Pippen, former NBA player for the Chicago Bulls, has returned to basketball by joining the Finnish league, reports WashingtonPost.com.

Pippen is now playing for Torpan Pojat, the leader of the Finnish league. Being at the top is nothing new for Pippen, who won six NBA championships while playing for the Chicago Bulls, whilst also earning two Olympic gold medals.

Pippen played his first game Friday, scoring 12 points to help ToPo win against Porvoo, 93-81.

On Saturday, Pippen scored nine points and managed nine rebounds to secure a 98-85 win against Honka in Vantaa.

Pippen expressed his excitement to be back in the game. “It was great. I did not know what to anticipate without a game for the last three years,” he said. “My conditioning is not at the top level, but I played with a great team and had a lot of fun.”
