Bulls legend Scottie Pippen testified yesterday in an $8 million malpractice lawsuit he's filed against law firm Pedersen & Houpt who Pippen for bad business deals which amounted to the loss of millions of dollars. Pippen alleges the firm failed to monitor the deals suggested by former financial adviser Robert Lunn who Pippen has already sued. An attorney for the firm said Pippen was simply playing a "blame game." Pippen said he wasn't notified when terms of a deal involving money he invested in a Gulfstream jet changed but also admitted that while playing basketball, he didn't always follow these financial deals, saying, “When we’re playing, we tend not to keep up." The trial is expected to last three weeks.
