“Twenty years now. Where’d they go? Twenty years, I don’t know. Sit and I wonder sometimes, where they’ve gone” – Bob Seger…And also me at this very moment while I’m thinking back to what I was doing and how I felt on the day Michael Jordan announced his return to the game of basketball. I’m not exactly sure about where I was when I found out, but what I felt was a frenzy of activity in my feels box.

I was just an excited kid when Michael Jordan famously muttered the words, “I’m Back.” A kid who, at the time, loved basketball and also the smell of his own farts. (One of those things has changed.) So imagine how Scottie Pippen must have felt to have the Batman to his Robin back. In the 1993-94 season, Pippen carried the Chicago Bulls and held his own as the leader of the team, but they weren’t Championship caliber. They were missing the G.O.A.T.

Last night, Pippen took to his Twitter feed to talk about MJ’s return.
