A street art tribute to Michael Jordan made out of 19,000 Gatorade bottles, including the new Gatorade Limited Edition Jordan Series, glows on a basketball court Monday on Chicago's South Side. Local Jordan fans and longtime Jordan teammate Scottie Pippen helped construct the mosaic, which Gatorade organized as a way to celebrate Jordan's Hall of Fame career.
Pippen talked to Kelly Dwyer about the event, his own first-ballot worthy career, and much more.
Check it out, and then hit the jump for some more photos.
Sharp-dressed Scottie Pippen and Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee place a few Gatorade bottles into the Jordan mosaic. Pip is actually featured alongside his former teammate on one of the six collectible Limited Edition Jordan Series bottles. Hopefully, it's the best tasting flavor.
The slick display was filmed for a Gatorade commercial that will debut later this summer.
