Scottie Pippen eyes limited comeback

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Scottie Pippen, a former All Star point guard, is 41 and hasn't seen NBA action since the 2003-2004 season, but he's talking comeback.

It's a limited comeback, however, for a couple of months. The former Chicago Bulls standout who co-starred with Michael Jordan on six NBA championship teams in the 1990s thinks he can help a playoff team down the stretch this year.

At 220 pounds, Pippen says he is in his best physical condition in years and would eventually like to get into coaching.

"I'm thinking of trying to come back for the playoffs," Pippen told the Chicago Tribune. He could be a valuable substitute on a contending team.

He's taking part in a "Shooting Stars" contest as part of Saturday night's All-Star Game festivities in Las Vegas and says he'll know better where he is physically after that.
