It’s a sad state of affairs in the media when TMZ is doing a lot of the major reporting in sports news.  First off, too much of the sports MSM does nothing except copy and paste team press releases or “report” about awards/award watch lists that no one outside of coaches and players care about. TMZ is reporting that Chicago Bulls icon Scottie Pippen got into an altercation outside of Nobu in Malibu with another man and the result was the other man ending up in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. Yes, when you get a TMZ report it’s going to involve smut. However, this is Scottie Pippen we’re talking about, and if true…”that’s assault, brotha!” as Billy Madison famously said. H/T Next Impulse Sports If this Scottie Pippen barfight article seems short, well we are working off a TMZ “report.” And TMZ “articles” are notoriously 50 words or less with often 2-3 word “paragraphs.” Because “reading is hard.” It hurts my brain, TMZ! We’ll see if the charges stick or not regarding Pippen. In the mean time, check out this exclusive that I just had with Scottie Pippen. As you can see from the shirt he’s wearing the day I interviewed the 47-year-old NBA Hall of Famer, Scottie Pippen certainly does enjoy going to nightclubs in warm cities. Paul M.
