Scottie Pippen Victim

He Spit at ME

I Never Said the N-Word

Scottie Pippen
's brawl with a fan outside Nobu in Malibu was totally unprovoked -- so says Scottie's alleged victim, who tells TMZ, he never ONCE said the n-word ... and simply asked for a photo.

The 48-year-old -- who didn't want to be named -- tells us, he first spotted Scottie inside the restaurant on Sunday while waiting for a table.

The fan, his girlfriend and Scottie eventually ended up sitting near each other ... so the fan says he asked to take a photo with the NBA legend for his 12-year-old son.

According to the guy, Scottie didn't want to get up from his table to pose with him, but allowed the fan to take a photo of him sitting down (below).

When the fan saw Scottie leaving, he says he approached the ex-Bulls star in the parking lot -- thinking it wasn't a big deal -- and again asked for a pic WITH Scottie, knowing it would mean a lot to his son.

He tells us Scottie turned and said, "I told you no motherf***er" ... and then spit at him and punched him, at which point the victim fell to the ground. He says the last thing he remembers is seeing Pippen's shoe coming at his face.

According to the victim, he woke up in the hospital Monday with a concussion, fractured ribs, busted lip and chin, a broken tailbone, and possible brain injuries. He's back at home now.

As for Pippen's allegation the man spewed the n-word and spit at him ... the fan says not true -- "It’s sad to see Scottie is trashing me. I never called him the N word, and I haven’t done anything to that guy ... What’s the big deal? Taking one picture with a fan."

The man says police have already interviewed him and his girlfriend, but right now he doesn't plan to sue. "I'm not thinking about anything at the moment but getting better."

Calls to Scottie's people weren't returned.

When you are eating you DON’T touch a stranger’s pen: it can be full of germs.

COME ON PEOPLE!

HONESTLY, YOU'RE EITHER NAIVE OR WHITE TO BELIEVE THIS. WHY WOULD THIS GUY INSIST ON A SECOND PICTURE, LIKE, ARE YOU RETARDED?! WHY DIDN'T THE MAN SUE SCOTTIE THEN?!?!

THERE IS ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT EVERY BLACK PERSON: NO MATTER AT WHAT LEVEL THEY ARE IN LIFE, JUST DON'T PRESS THE TRIGGER, DON'T SAY THE N-WORD!

SCOTTY WASN'T COOL TO BEAT THE **** OUT OF HIM, BUT WE HAVE BEEN ON THIS FOR SO LONG, AND SOME EVEN KILL JUST FOR THIS, SO DON'T SAY IT, IT'S CASE SENSITIVE!

NEWS FLASH!!! An attorney friend recognized this Persian POS!!! This guy is involved in other law suits, so his story of not wanting to sue Pippen is all BS.. They guy is looking for an easy Payday, because he's done this before! This guy is dirty!! Why is TMZ protecting this guy's name?

So sick of hearing about the "N" word!!!

Pippin probably used it 100 times that day! If it is so offensive, NOBODY should be throwing it around. Can't have selective racism! SO OLD!

So I'm suppose to believe a 12 yr. old even knows who Scottie Pippen is, yet alone want his autograph? The fan was being a douche and picked the wrong guy to PRETEND to be a tough guy with. Game, set, match PIPPEN.

More than likely Pippen is telling the truth. He has no past history of such behavior ever before, why else would a nearly 50 year old man loose his mind for the 1st time. Even the cops figured that out.

Just another so called sports professional gone bad...I love how the black community can say that forbidden n word everyday in speech and rap songs, but they become offended when others say the word...there must be some unwritten rule on how and when the n word can be said, they call each other the n word everyday on the streets in every city and town in this country...how bad can that word be if they continue to use it?
