Pippen details how he cringed at being labeled Jordan’s sidekick


Hate to break it to you Scottie, you were.

I think people today like to look back and rewrite history based off of current feelings about history’s subjects, and Pippen is a beneficiary of this. At no time during that run did basketball fans look at Scottie Pippen and think he was not a sidekick, or even the 1b to MJs 1a.

On the Bulls back then, in whose hands was the ball for the last shot far more often than not?

That’s the leader.

(Hint - It wasn’t Pippen.)

Jordan, Pippen, Rodman were all studs. Then Jackson coaching, team was well put together really.

MJ fans already losing their minds in this thread.

Bet it is a shock to them MJ couldn't get to a final talk much win one without another top 50 greatest player of all time on the roster.

On the second run he got Rodman to join him. Apparently MJ is the father of making superteams too.

(Or is that Barkley when he joined Hakeem and Clyde Drexler?)

When someone is washed up, it ain’t making a super team when they join other stars.

Barkley was way past his prime ... no super team. Same as when a washed up Malone and GP went to the lakers.

MJ was a bitch, and I’d assume a terrible leader. I realize the Wizards weren’t on the verge of greatness, but he totally botched that situation in terms of leading the team.

Some people say that MJ’s attitude is what made him great. I can see that, but I don’t think MJ had to be a dick teammate to achieve greatness. Regardless of the in court achievements, the documentary was a desperate ploy by him to remind the world that he is better than LeBron.

He didn’t do anything of note with Barkley and Olajuwon either. Replace Jordan on that Rockets teams and they win it all.

Not sure why some guys who were lucky enough to be surrounded by greatness and win a bunch of titles would want to try to act like it wasn't that way.
Dumb.

MJ was washed by then and so was Barkley and Pippen.

This is the stupidity Pippen was trying to stamp out.

Scottie Pippen is a top-50 player of all time yet you're here saying he was lucky to be surrounded by greatness.

MJ didn't win shite without him. He was very important and is greatness himself.

I don’t particularly like Pippen but the proof is in the pudding. The Bulls were still a very good team without Jordan.

Someone should tell Pippen there is no Pippen as we know him without MJ either. Pippen wins no rings without MJ while MJ likely wins a few without Pippen.

This is such a dumb take. MJ fans will go to the grave beating their fat man boob chest screaming that MJ can do no wrong. MJ wasn’t winning shite before he got star power. Look at his playoff record before Pippen and Rodman came. Not good. League also had different rules than what they do today in favor of scorers and not defenders.

Madonna thought Scottie was a bigger piece of the Bulls dynasty than Michael, apparently.

Well that is true he couldn’t beat the world champion pistons without another good player on his team. he had very little help. All he needed was a pippen level player to get him over the hump. He didn’t need much, Scottie was not all that by any means.

re: Scottie Pippen’s memoir seems to throw some big Michael Jordan shade
quote:

With teammate Michael Jordan as a motivational and instructional mentor, Pippen refined his skills and slowly developed many new ones over his career. Jordan and Pippen frequently played one-on-one outside of team practices, simply to hone each other's skills on offense and defense.


Pippen was drafted by the Bulls in 1987. It’s not as though he was a superstar that signed with the Bulls. The above quote is from Wikipedia. If Pippen had been drafted by some other random team, and not the Bulls, he probably has a very good career but nothing on the level of success he had with Chicago. He benefited from being drafted onto Jordan’s team, and Jordan helped mold him into the player he became.

It’s worth pointing out that Pippen even wore some Air Jordans in the 95 season (before Jordan returned) for at least one game, and on camera pointed to them and made a gesture for Jordan to come back to the team. Why would he do that if he resented him so much? He probably resents him now because of his poor contract decision. But everyone in basketball knew then who the centerpiece was on that Bulls team, Pippen included.
