Pippen may move behind mike

HOUSTON, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Former NBA star Scottie Pippen, already bored in retirement, is considering a new career behind the mike.

He provided analysis alongside play-by-play man Jim Durham, the former longtime voice of the Chicago Bulls, in an ESPN broadcast that didn't air, the Chicago Tribune said.

"I'm not nervous," Pippen said. "I'm excited. I'm pretty sure Jim will carry me. He always told me when I was playing that he was going to get that voice on radio. He got it."

Told that at least he knew the Bulls well, Pippen smiled.

"That makes it tougher," he said. "I'll start cheering for them."
