Scottie Pippen is seen as the National Basketball Association’s “greatest sidekick” to a legendary player. Alongside Michael Jordan, the duo brought six championships in an eight-year span to the city of Chicago and left a lasting impression on Bulls fans (and basketball fans in general) worldwide.

In 17 seasons, Pippen scored 18,940 points, grabbed 7,494 rebounds, dished out 6,135 assists and made 10 NBA All-Defensive Teams.

Yeah, not bad for a “sidekick”.

To celebrate Pippen’s 49th birthday, we’ll take a look at some of Pip’s greatest plays and moments during his Hall of Fame career.
