Former Bulls hall of famer Scottie Pippen welcomed recent first-round draft pick Bobby Portis to the Bulls after the NBA Draft.
I can’t complain about an Arkansas kid coming to Chicago. Congrats to [Bobby Portis] and welcome to the NBA.
Portis and Pippen both grew up in Little Rock, Ark., but attended different universities. Pippen attended Central Arkansas, and Portis was the SEC Player of the Year at the University of Arkansas.
The former Razorback responded to Pippen with a simply polite expression.
Portis did say at his first press conference he wants to be the best player to come from Little Rock, which means he has to be better than Pippen, who averaged 16 points, six rebounds and five assists during his 17-year career.
