Scottie-PippenFormer NBA superstar, legendary Chicago Bulls forward Scottie Pippen made a surprising guest appearance in a Goodman Theatre production of “A Christmas Carol”, according to ProBasketBall alumni.

It was all for a good cause as he appeared courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The NBA and local Chicago legend was helping the organization grant the wish of a 7-year-old cancer patient, La’ren Kimble, who wants to become an actress.

Playing a 19th century London townsperson, Pippen became the first 6’8” person in the play.

According to TMZ, the director created the role for Scottie and he even went into the crowd in the scene where everyone celebrates Christmas morning.

In November, Bulls have appointed Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen senior adviser to president and chief operating officer Michael Reinsdorf.

Pippen spent 12 of his 17 NBA seasons playing for the Bulls. He has spent the past two seasons as a team ambassador.

Pippen won six NBA titles during his time with the Bulls as Michael Jordan’s sidekick. He also won two gold medals with Team USA.

Pippen got inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 2010 (as player). In his NBA career, Pippen played for the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Portland TrailBlazers.

Pippen played in a total of 1178 NBA games (1053 started), averaging 16.1 ppg, 6.4 rpg and 5.2 apg in 34.9 minutes per game.
