Scottie Pippen may have known he was poor growing up, but it didn’t bother him. Like most kids, he was content with what he had. Truth be told, his family were struggling. His father was unable to work after suffering a stroke.
To make matters worse, Pippen was the youngest of 12 children. The struggle was real with 12 mouths to feed and only one parent able to work. Pippen didn’t get much attention from scouts out of high school and wasn’t offered any scholarships. Perhaps his dream was over.
