Scottie Pippen, wants to come out of a 3 year retirement. He is now 41 years old. Which NBA team would you like to see him play? The teams LA Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers have been interested.. but Scottie wants to play in Miami. Kobe has desired interest for Pippen to play in LA, Pippen can be a playing asst. coach in Cleveland and Miami could have a triple threat in Wade-Pippen-Oneal. What do you think?

it would be better if he plays alongside with kobe and head coach phil jackson. i think both compliment each other and pippen will not have to worry about playing style of his teammate kobe(if he signed with with the lakers) because kobe and jordan is almost the same in terms playing style and of course system adjustment will not be difficult because he plays and created a dynasty together with jackson before with the bulls. i also think that the lakers needs a veteran leader on the floor to help them push through deeper to the playoffs. if i am pippen to the three teams that has been mentioned (cleveland, miami and LA) miami heat will be my last option, because i don't think that he will have enough playing time, if he signed with the heat he will share minutes with posey, kapono, jones and walker

If Pipen goes to Lakers, he can play along Bryant as Kobe more resemble to Jordan in my opinion. In Heat, well there are his old school friend Shaq and yes it will be a threat as don't forget about the new Jordan, Wade lol. I don't think why he should go to Cavaliers? Are they going to pay him more? If yes, well go there buddy lol.

thats a big question, age will be a big issue for the team although he is a superstar he's talent is not as good as before so i think miami will think twice before signing him. and even if they signed pippen how he will be able to share minutes with the veteran defender posey, the improving and 3-point champ kapono, the ball-hug walker and comebacking heat star eddie jones?

Here's the key for him going to the Lakers... he understands the triangle offense much more than Lamar Odom does, and Phil Jackson has been trying to get him to learn it for a year and a half now. With the Lakers, Scottie could run the offense and still tutor Odom so that he can get a better understanding of it. Scottie would be the best point guard on that team right now. I would rather see him in Cleveland or Miami, though. I think that Miami could use him now that Wade could miss a lot of time with the injury. with the Cavs, Scottie can run the offense and tak pressure of LeBron in running the offense, freeing him to get out and around the court.

With Wade's injury, I think Miami Heat needs Scottie Pippen the most. He can lead the team in offense and he still can defend the perimeter along with James Posey and Eddie Jones. With Shaq, Haslem, Posey, Jones, and Pippen in its starting five, the Heat can still be a threat as they try to defend their title. On the other hand, Pippen can also play for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Lebron needs a helping hand for ball distribution and a surge coming from the bench for defensive and offensive prowess can definitely help the Cavs in its bid for the championship. If Pippen plays for Kobe and his Lakers, it also would be a good fit for him. The Lakers right now need something or someone who can help them with their woes. Probably, a reunion with Phil can help the Lakers get off their losing record. Nevertheless, I'd still say that Miami will be a great place for Pippen over the Cavs and Lakers.
