'Scottie Pippen' photo (c) 2010, Paul Vera-Broadbent - license: Former Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen was outside Nobu in Malibu, California where he got into an altercation with another man. The cause of the altercation is not yet known, but Pippen did a number on the poor fellow. Pippen not only knocked this man out, but injured him so badly that he had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital.

The 47-year old former NBA star measures in at 6'8" and weighs over 200 pounds. The name and description of the man he argued with have not been released, so it's hard to say that size played a part. Regardless, Pippen is no Tiger Woods. His toughness on the basketball court is not a game-time thing, it is a part of him that will always be there. 

Pippen played in 1,178 games, starting 1,053. He averaged 16.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.9 steals. He also boasts 47.3% on field goal shooting and shot 32.6% from beyond the arc. His biggest downfall was the nearly three turnovers per game that he caused.

Drafted in 1987 by the Seattle Supersonics and traded to Chicago the same day, Pippen began and ended his career with the Bulls. He spent one season with the Houston Rockets and four seasons with the Portland Trailblazers before ending up back in Chicago in 2003. The Bulls waived Pippen after the 2003-2004 season. He won six NBA Championships in Chicago, all with Michael Jordan.

The police were called to the scene of the altercation, but Pippen was gone when they arrived. No word of charges have been mentioned at this time.
