Today it was announced that Chicago Bulls legend and team ambassador/six-time NBA champion/Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2010 inductee Scottie Pippen will
join Comcast SportsNet's game announcing tandem of Neil Funk and Stacey

Friday, March 4 at Orlando (6:00 PM start).
In addition, Pippen will also handle game analyst duties for every
Bulls playoff telecast on Comcast SportsNet beginning in mid-April.
"Scottie Pippen is most certainly one of the greatest players in NBA
history whose knowledge and passion of the game is second to none,"
said James J. Corno, President of Comcast SportsNet Chicago. "We're
thrilled Scottie will be on our team with Neil and Stacey for the March
4th telecast at Orlando, along with every Bulls playoff telecast on
Comcast SportsNet this spring."
Pippen, named one of the "50 Greatest Players in NBA History" in
1996, enjoyed a massively-successful 17-year NBA career, including 12
seasons in a Bulls uniform. Among his numerous career accomplishments
include being named to the "All-NBA First Team" on three occasions,
twice to the "All-NBA Second Team," the "All-NBA Defensive First Team"
eight times, an NBA All-Star selection seven times and the1994 All-Star
Game MVP. In addition, Pippen won gold medals at the 1992 and 1996
Olympic Games, the first coming as a member of the original "Dream
Team," who, along with Pippen, were also recently inducted into the
Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
