I’m an NBA legend who earned $110m in career and won multiple finals – now I’m a livestock farmer with my brother

SCOTTIE Pippen has taken up an unusual post-retirement job for an NBA legend, becoming a livestock farmer in his native Arkansas.

The Chicago Bulls icon owns the estate together with his brother Billy.

Pippen, 57, isn’t the only ex-NBA star to venture into agriculture after retiring from the hardwood.

Bryant Reeves, who was the Memphis Grizzlies’ first-ever draftee following the franchise’s launch in Vancouver, Canada, now runs on a 300-acre ranch in Oklahoma.

Similarly, six-time All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire is no stranger to operating a tractor.

But considering Pippen’s achievements, he might be just the most famous farmer on the planet.

The six-time NBA champion’s estate is located in his hometown of Hamburg, Arkansas, about 110 miles southeast of Little Rock.

He seemingly does some of the hard work around his land too.

A few years ago, Pippen was pictured holding a bag of VitaFerm cattle nutrition supplements – while sporting a Bulls sweatshirt.

He also wore a pair of dusty and slightly ripped jeans with a rubber glove sticking out of his bag pocket.

The legendary 6-foot-8 forward’s farmland life hasn’t been worry-free, though.

Five years ago, the Pippen brothers had two tractors – a Kabota and a John Deere, altogether worth over $50,000 – stolen from the farm.

They reportedly offered a $2,500 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction of the thieves.

It’s uncertain whether the perpetrators were caught.

Outside of farming, Pippen has done some media work as well.

He served as an NBA analyst for the Bulls’ broadcasting team during the 2011 playoffs.

The former No. 5 pick also made appearances on ESPN’s The Jump, allegedly leading to Chicago dismissing him as the team’s public relations ambassador.

Pippen averaged 16.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 2.0 steals in 17 NBA seasons – and pocketed $110million in career earnings.
