That's right. Scottie Pippen is a Hall of Famer, just one year after his partner, Michael Jordan, was inducted. It's only fitting that Scottie comes second, I guess.
And while Karl Malone's speech was heart-felt and sincere, Scottie's was a bit more scripted. Take a look:
Well, there's a few things wrong with this speech. For one, we find out that Scottie Pippen can't read too well. (MJ, you have touch so many people lives, but none lot laak minez.)
We also find out that Scottie Pippen is still going through financial hardship. Thanks to deductive reasoning, we realize that his "thank you" to Nike was an advertisement plug-in. To do that during his Hall of Fame speech shows us that Scottie could use an extra buck or two. Or a million.
Either way, Scottie deserves to have his Hall of Fame moment (even if Nike did pay him a little cash). He's considered one of the best defenders in the history of the NBA, and he refused to ruin Karl Malone's night by saying "Hey, Karl. Look at my ring. Are you looking? KARL?! LOOK AT MY RING!"
