    Six-time NBA champion Scottie Pippen proved he can win on the court and in a court.

    A Cook County jury Monday awarded the former Chicago Bulls player with a $2 million verdict in a lawsuit involving a bad jet deal in 2002, the Sun-Times reports.

    Pippen sued two Chicago lawyers who work at Pedersen & Houpt for malpractice. He alleged the attorneys failed to guard his investment while he played for the Portland Trailblazers.

    Jurors partially agreed his team of financial advisers were responsible for the loss. However, they concluded Pippen was responsible as well not giving him the $8.2 million he sought.

    That didn't stop victory tears from rolling down his face.

    "I don't want to really say anything," Pippen told the Sun-Times. "I'm just exhausted and tired."
