Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen to participate in Luc Longley documentary

Basketball greats Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen will head an all-star cast in a two-part ABC series centring on the life of their former Chicago Bulls teammate Luc Longley. In the Australian Story series scheduled to run on August 2 and 9, Longley breaks his silence on his relationship with Jordan and his bizarre omission last year from his three-time NBA championship teammate’s Netflix documentary, The Last Dance.

The star-studded series also features rare interviews with Jordan and Pippen about Longley as well as the towering Australian’s former Bulls teammate Steve Kerr and coach Phil Jackson. Longley has, until now, declined to comment publicly on The Last Dance, which detailed Jordan’s influence on the all-conquering Bulls team and the brash operation run by then-general manager Jerry Krause.
Still, that was a ways away. “We knew at the time that Giannis had the ability to handle the ball,” says Joe Prunty, Bucks assistant coach from 2014 to 2018, “but being able to handle the ball and being able to run the team are different things.” Kidd flirted with having Giannis at point guard beginning in 2014 summer league, though Giannis’s official position was listed as center in two of four of the games. Kidd knew Giannis could play all positions; he could become a hybrid point forward, like Scottie Pippen was. Privately, Kidd told his coaches that Giannis might never morph into a point guard, but he could turn into the next-generation big man, because, truly, what five-man could guard him?
Have you ever wanted to kick back and watch the Olympics at a Hall of Famer’s crib? If so, Scottie Pippen is offering an opportunity to do just that. The two-time Olympic gold medalist is offering basketball fans a nightly rate of $92 for full access to his two-bed, one-bath Airbnb listing to “cheer on the next generation of Olympians from my home court!” Pippen’s home is located in Highland Park, Illinois and valued at $2 million.
“When you think about the top small forwards, you don’t name Paul Pierce,” he explained. “You name T-Mac, Scottie Pippen, James Worthy… you name guys like that. And I just feel like when they named ‘Bron he’s like he’s did things and I should be up there, too, I did just as much as these guys did; I got the ring, I got the numbers… why is my name NOT up there? So I think that it’s a little personal matchup between him and ‘Bron. I don’t think it’s really any dislike; I just think that’s how he feels.”
Scottie Pippen is welcoming guests and fans into his Highland Park home to watch the Olympic Games. Through Airbnb, Pippen is opening his home for three one-night stays for up to four people on Aug. 2, 4 and 6 for $92 per night (plus fees and taxes), the cost is a nod to the year he and his teammates became Olympic gold medalists in Barcelona in 1992. Stays are timed so guests can watch basketball competitions from the group stage to the gold and silver medal games in Tokyo.
