The Chicago Bulls perennial number two man, Scott Pippen, is reportedly going to be named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Monday in Indianapolis.

Pippen was the basketball star in the shadow of Michael Jordan during a six NBA championship run for the Bulls.

Pippen will be inducted along with former Boston Celtics guard Dennis Johnson, the 1992 Dream Team, former Utah jazz forward Karl Malone and New Jersey high school coach Bob Hurley Sr, the New Jersey Register-Star reported Sunday.

Pippen was a seven-time NBA All Star and is only one of four Chicago Bulls to have their jerseys retired (along with Jordan, Jerry Sloan and Bob Love).

Pippen, who spent 12 of his 17 years in the NBA with the Bulls is number 2 in all-time points, steals and assists. This is the first year he was eligible for the Hall of Fame.
