Scottie Pippen got a handwritten birthday card from President Obama

Thursday November 5th, 2015

President Barack Obama is a known Bulls fan. 

When you’re the president, that brings with it certain connections. And so, Obama went out of his way to wish Bulls legend and NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen a hppy birthday on Wednesday. 

Pippen turned the big 5–0, and what turned up in the mail but some White House letterhead and handwritten wishes from the man himself.

We all will lose our verticals one day. 

What a thought.
