From the very short article: Prim Capital Corp., a financial planning company based in Cleveland, has filed a $250,000 lawsuit against former client Scottie Pippen for breach of contract. But since I'm nearly finished with Sam Smith's The Jordan Rules, I'll include an excerpt that I thought was related. Reinsdorf got the message that day. He heard Pippen had missed practice the morning after scoring 33 against Boston and after having no apparent signs of any illness the night before. And word was that Pippen had gone our after the game to celebrate. Reinsdorf called Rote [Pippen's agent]. "I'm sure Scottie is sick," Reinsdorf told him. "But if he isn't and he doesn't come to practice tomorrow or if he says he has a back injury, we're done. He plays out his contract and we don't talk again, not a word, until after the 1992-93 season. And then we just match whatever offer he gets. He doesn't get a penny more for two years and you tell him that." The next morning, Pippen showed up for practice.
