Scottie Pippen Bulls Ambassador
February 11, 2012 by staff
Scottie Pippen Bulls Ambassador, The Chicago Bulls announced on July 15 that team legend and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen has agreed to rejoin the organization as an ambassador.
“It’s a first step for me,” Pippen said of his new role with the Bulls. “I do want to continue moving forward in the game, but my job as ambassador will allow me to take advantage of some of my stronger points. It’s an opportunity for me to give back to an organization which has pretty much given me everything.”
Scottie Pippen is back with the team in which he won six world championships and played 12 of his 17 legendary NBA seasons.
Pippen has rejoined the Bulls as an ambassador, meaning he’ll be a very visible presence moving forward at home games, team events and other community-related functions.
“It’s great to be back with the organization,” Pippen said while at the United Center on Thursday. “I don’t feel like I ever left, I just wasn’t as active as I look forward to being in the future. To be part of the Bulls family again means a lot to me. I’ve always cheered them on no matter how far away I was at the time and wished them the best. Hopefully, I can bring something positive to the organization as it tries to re-develop that winning tradition.
“I am really looking forward to being more involved in the community,” Pippen added. “That is an area in which you can never do enough. CharitaBulls has donated so much time and effort into helping different groups and organizations for many years. It’s an area in which I’d like to come back and be very strong, giving back and working with the kids.”
Though the relationship is again official, Pippen has never distanced himself from the organization that started his professional career, one that will culminate with his induction to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame next month. He’s been a regular contributor to the team’s web site, Bulls.com, and remains close with members of the front office, including John Paxson, Pete Myers and Randy Brown.
While Pippen, his wife, Larsa, and their three boys-Scottie, Preston and Justin-have spent winters living in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the family is now back in the Chicago area full-time.
