Scottie Pippen is Excited for his Bulls

Scottie Pippen is excited about the Bulls.

NBA hall of famer and Bulls legend Scottie Pippen is very optimistic about this year’s Bulls team. The six-time NBA champion knows a thing or two about winning.

Pippen spoke at great lengths with Comcast SportsNet Chicago about the upcoming season.

“I’m excited [about the upcoming season]. I think going forward we really have a great opportunity to put ourselves among the elite teams in the game. With the emergence of Jimmy Butler—I’ve seen him in the gym this summer—I know that kid is really preparing  himself to be a better player.

“I don’t have to say anything about our veterans like Luol [Deng] and [Carlos] Boozer. I know those guys are going to show up in shape ready to go. We all know Derrick spent a lot of time working and trying to get himself back at a high level. If we can stay healthy, we’re going to be an exciting team to watch this season.”

There’s absolutely some bias here from Pippen, but the Bulls indeed could make major noise if Derrick Rose is the same Derrick Rose.
