Scottie Pippen grew up in Hamburg, Arkansas, where he attended college at University of Central Arkansas. Pippen, a 6’8″ small forward, was selected fifth overall in the 1987 NBA Draft by the Seattle SuperSonics, who immediately traded him to the Chicago Bulls for the eighth pick, 7-ft center Olden Polynice. The trade was regarded as a steal by the Bulls because of how Pippen would blossom into an all-star while Polynice would be a journeyman role player on numerous different teams.
Pippen immediately became part of Chicago’s young forward tandem with 6’10” (2.08 m) power forward Horace Grant, though both came off the bench to back up Brad Sellers and Charles Oakley, respectively, during their rookie seasons. Still, Pippen claimed the starting small forward position during the 1988 playoffs with his stellar play, helping the Michael Jordan-led Bulls reach the Eastern Conference semi-finals for the first time in over a decade.
Pippen became known for stellar defense in addition to his consistent scoring, earning several NBA All-Defensive Team nods, including several on the first team. In 1992, he was named to the original Dream Team which competed in the Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.
