Whether he was ridning on Jordans coattails or not, the Bulls have retired Scottie Pippens Jersey. Phil Jackson and Micheal were both on hand for the ceremonies this past Friday's ceremonies. An integral part of the 6 trophies that the team has accumulated.

Scottie Pippen did his best to check his emotions. It didn't work.

Surrounded by Michael Jordan and other former teammates and coaches, an emotional Pippen fought back tears as the Chicago Bulls retired his No. 33 during halftime of Friday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I want to let you know that you all have been a part of it," Pippen said during the ceremony.

His number is the fourth to hang from the rafters, joining Jordan's 23, Bob Love's 10 and Jerry Sloan's 4. Phil Jackson and Jerry Krause, the coach and general manager during the championship years, also have banners hanging from the rafters.
