Scottie Pippen Jr. puts up a dazzling display in the Summer League, and it looks as though LeBron James, will finally get his sidekick.
Scottie Pippen Jr.’s heroics has LeBron James relishing the prospect of a team-up, but will he win as Michael Jordan did with Scottie sr.
Well, if fate has destined it, we will most likely see young Scottie Jr. on the Los Angeles Lakers’ roster this season. His most recent performance in the Summer League has left us no doubt.
LeBron James will finally get to play alongside a Scottie Pippen. Well, this one is a younger version so he will be akin to Damian Wayne, rather than Richard Grayson. What do we mean by this? Batman anyone?

Scottie Pippen Sr. watches his son ball out in the Summer League, a LeBron James team-up soon?
When your dad shows up to watch, you will end up playing better than ever. That’s a fact. For Scottie Jr., he was not going to be let down in front of his old man.

His performance tonight almost certainly proves that he will make the roster and if that happens, LeBron could end up playing with the sons of Shaquille O’Neal and Scottie Pippen.
