Scottie Pippen has filed a countersuit against a Malibu man who alleged the former NBA All-Star assaulted him at a restaurant last year. Camran Shafighi filed a $4-million lawsuit against Pippen, accusing him of a “brutal and unjustified physical attack" that allegedly occurred outside upscale Nobu restaurant after Shafighi had sought a picture with the former Chicago Bull. But in a cross-complaint filed earlier this month, Pippen's lawyer Mark J. Geragos alleged Shafighi cursed at Pippen using racial slurs, spat on him and his children and said, “I'm going to kill you.” The cross-complaint also alleges that Shafighi was “extremely aggressive and noticeably intoxicated” and calls for unspecified damages “according to proof.” Reached Tuesday, Shafighi's attorney, Kathryn Lee Boyd, said she had no comment on the cross-complaint “at this time.” In August, about a month after Shafighi filed his complaint, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced Pippen would not face assault charges after prosecutors determined there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pippen was guilty of committing a crime.

Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen thinks that some fans have been too hard on point guard Derrick Rose. Rose sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last May and missed the entire NBA season while rehabilitating the injury despite being medically cleared to practice in five-on-five situations in mid-February. He received a lot of criticism for not returning after his doctor gave him the go-ahead. "I was kind of surprised people turned on him knowing the difficulty of Derrick's injury," Pippen told reporters at Nike's pro-am basketball league at Whitney Young High School in Chicago on Saturday.

Dennis Rodman is ready to take basketball diplomacy to the next level. Fresh off his second controversial trip to North Korea, the flamboyant former NBA star announced plans to stage a pair of exhibition games there in January, featuring a team of fellow ex-basketball players. He even threw out a couple of names on his wish list: Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone. But there's no word on whether his fellow Hall of Famers will be joining Rodman on his next trip to the repressive state that considers the U.S. a sworn enemy and has sentenced American Kenneth Bae to 15 years of hard labor for alleged hostile acts against North Korea.

Scottie Pippen is being sued for $4 million by a 49-year-old man who said he was physically attacked by the NBA Hall of Famer at a Malibu restaurant last month. The suit alleges that Camran Shafighi asked Pippen for a photograph for his girlfriend's 12-year-old son but instead got a “brutal and unjustified physical attack” that included being spit on in the face, shoved and punched so hard he ended up on the ground and later in the hospital with a head injury. “At no time did or could Mr. Shafighi physically provoke or fight back, as he was knocked unconscious with the first blow,” the lawsuit said.

Thunder power forward Nick Collison blogged for GQ about rookie hazing: "We make sure our rookies this season — Reggie Jackson and Ryan Reid — wear their pink Justin Bieber and 'My Little Pony' backpacks and carry their oversized teddy bears on all road trips. Kendrick Perkins says in Boston they made a rookie go out in a foot of snow and do 100 push-ups in only his spandex shorts. " The Magic's erratic play has raised questions about Orlando Coach Stan Van Gundy's future.

SHANGHAI - Basketball-crazed countries around the world tuned in to see the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs in a tense Game 7 of the NBA Finals last week. Now, league officials are hoping audiences in China, its largest international market, will soon be enthralled by a different kind of hoops drama: a 3-D sci-fi basketball movie featuring some of the NBA's top names. The $10-million film, "Amazing," features New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, Lakers center Dwight Howard and former Chicago Bulls forward Scottie Pippen in supporting roles and had its world premiere at the Shanghai International Film Festival last week.

There are the contradictions from Scottie Pippen himself, first claiming that he doesn't have anything to prove, and a few minutes later acknowledging that "this is a big time for me." Pippen scored 29 points in a playoff game last season against the Philadelphia 76ers, a couple days after leaving the Chicago Bulls for his father's funeral in Arkansas.

Dennis Rodman apparently isn't that impressed with Miami Heat superstar LeBron James. “If LeBron was playing in the late '80s or early '90s, he'd be just an average player," Rodman said in an interview with Dan Patrick aired Friday on "The Dan Patrick Show. " The Hall of Fame rebounder thinks that the level of play in the NBA isn't what it used to be when Michael Jordan was king. “If Michael played today … really? If he played the game today at 28 years old, he would average 40 points a game, probably more,” said Rodman, who won three NBA championships playing alongside Jordan in Chicago.

Talk about the Lakers surpassing the Chicago Bulls' record-setting 72 wins from the 1995-96 season pops up nearly every year. It then quickly evaporates, either through the media losing interest or the team avoiding the topic. But with the Lakers boasting four future Hall of Famers in their starting lineup, such talk has emerged again. It's come from none other than the unpredictable Metta World Peace. In seasons past, the Lakers either quietly talked about this goal or shied away from it completely.
