23 Mar Bulls to unveil bronze bust honoring Scottie Pippen
A bronze bust of Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen will be unveiled during a halftime ceremony at the Chicago Bulls’ game April 7 against the Boston Celtics.
The bust — created by Omri and Julie Rotblatt-Amrany, who also sculpted the Michael Jordan statue — will be permanently displayed inside the United Center on the 100-Level Concourse by Gate 7. Both sculptors will attend the ceremony.
“Words really can’t express my feelings,” Pippen said in a statement. “It’s an unbelievable honor and truly amazing. It’s something you dream of as a kid growing up, but you can never foresee those childhood fantasies becoming reality.”
