NBA Star on Swedish Court
Swedish basketball fans will have something to look forward to in January. Former American star Scottie Pippen will make a one-time appearance for the northern Swedish team the Sundsvall Dragons.
The 42 year old Pippen, who played alongside Michael Jordan and helped the Chicago Bulls win six NBA titles, will play for Sundsvall on January 11th, when they take on Akropol at home.
Pippen retired in 2004 with a knee injury, but Reuters reports that he has contemplated a return to the NBA.
Reuters also says that the National Hockey League is considering playing more regular season games in Europe, and Stockholm is among the rumoured hosts.
