He may have been a member of the greatest NBA dynasty of the 90s, but apparently you’d never want to wait tables on ex-Bulls star Scottie Pippen. According to a surprising number of sites, he’s known as “No Tippen Pippen,” for his thrift. In fact, according to Wiz Bang Pop!, the behavior hasn’t stopped since he left the court. Whether it was leaving a $25 tip on a $800 bill in Portland (3 percent!), or bragging about his stiff tipping ways with former teammates, he’s apparently the one NBA star you’d be best to walk away from. Who should you look for? The Stained Apron, which documents the “Saints and the Scum” of celebrity tipping, suggests that you go out of your way to serve Charles Barkley. He actually paid for the college tuition of a busboy at a Philadelphia restaurant one night. [Wiz Bang Pop!]
