I don’t see how you got so many thumbs up because…I’m pretty sure all the “michael jordan fans” appreciate what Pip did. He’s almost becoming overrated with people glorifying him like you just did. You gotta remember…as much as Pip was responsible for Jordan’s 6 rings, Michael was even more responsible for Pippen’s eventual greatness as a ball player. I’m pretty sure most agree that Pip would not have become as good without MJ by his side.
I love how Rodman goes over to where Pippen is and helps him to sit up after he had fallen HARD. It was endearing to see since I was just watching the Pistons/Bulls game where Dennis pushes Scottie over towards crowd. Nice to see them being teammates.
There is no doubt that pip was PIMP. But we don’t need to diss mike to give pip props . We don’t need to diss pip to give mike props…they were the most COMPLETE 1-2 punch of all time…The could both handle, play smothering full-court d, get the block from the weak side, get the steals from the weak side, pass their asses off, post-up, spot-up…dizzying stuff. They were never truly out of games because of this…AND they were both CLUTCH. Defensive clutch for Pip…offense and d for mike.
You have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. Pippen shot close to or OVER 50% for all of those great Chicago teams AND he also had a 2:1 assist to turnover ratio as the point forward. Scottie Pippen was a FANTASTIC offensive player. Educate yourself.
You can also see what makes MJ the greatest ever. 5 games scoring over 55pts. No other player in his era, or the era before has ever done that. Not even Wilt. This is what makes MJ the greatest. He was able to dominate not only in the regular season,…but also in the playoffs. He dominated in this way with and without Scottie.
Pip was good but his scoring efficiency was horrible. He needed Jordan. Pip never shot close to 50% his entire career. He was not a great offensive player by any stretch. He had good moments, but he needed a better player.
