    I respect that about Scottie Pippen.. and where he fell short of was realizing he needed a wing man like MJ needed you to play along side him and his mentality to ACTUALLY LEAD. Because that is where if Pippen succeeded at.. he would have won Championships before MJ returned and probably would have had more than MJ. It would have been the most illest and controversial topic and Pippen might have been in the same sentence as Lebron James as far as Impact and leadership.. obviously the point spread would have been different.

    Now this is all valid if Pippen's game was such that he can lead a team but he couldn't do that and that was his flaw that flatten the attention on his ability like plenty of other athletes before him and after him.. They needed a dude like MJ to lead and take away that pressure to allow them and their game to flourish. People do not know how people play with each other and against each other and how one meshes with another and I can see that today. A couple of decades ago, it would have been difficult.

    It's a 50 50 if they played against each other in their prime. 5 wins for both playing 10 out of 10

    Jordan taught and helped develop Scotties Skills, and whenever they played against each other, Jordan always gave Scottie the business. But yes Scottie became incredibly skilled as a result and that helped Jordan. But to say that he was more skilled than Jordan. Only someone who hates on Jordan or has no idea would say such stupid crap....good thing he owns up to the fact that it's because he's still a diehard badboy piston, and that's the real reason he says this crap. Because he is being like many Jordan haters, always in denial and always in refusal. Any way possible. I used to know a guy that was a diehard Sonics and Kemp fan. And he would swear to his death bed that Kemp was more skilled and talented than Jordan. God bless his soul. Some people just diehard fans of one guy no matter what.

    Jordan was the Goat, but Pip was the most versatile player in rhe league during that era. Ive seen him bring the ball upcourt like a PG, and play every postion with a smooth transition. Sally is right. Pip was was one of the best defenders on the court and created mismatches because of his height and wingspan, while still retaining his speed

    He is correct.
    Think about it.
    Nobody has more BASKETBALL skills than Larry Bird.The guy had 2562034825205 different ways to kick your ass.
    If you understand that, you get it why Pippen was more skilled than Jordan.He could do more things.He had more tools in his arsenal to do what he had to do.
    Was he better then Jordan then ? Hell, no.
    If you have 3000 guns, 1500 knig-fes, 50 granades and 100 snipers, and a million shields, it will mean nothing against one single Nuklear Bomb droping in your face (that´s Jordan).
    So that´s it.

    .........Jordan’s fundamentals and techniques were supreme...especially after he came back from baseball... he scored easier than anybody I’ve seen in my life and would laugh at you 😂

    The best offensive player ends up getting the best defensive player of their era. MJ made Pip better and vice versa. The rest they say was history.

    I grew up a BAD BOYS fan in the 80's 90's. I hated Jordon all those years but now that I'm older I realized I was just hating on him I realized I was one of the lucky ones that was able to see him play in person at the Palace. So yes Chicago growing up a pistons fan now I realize just who is the GOAT.

    What he says is straight facts, MJ'd have a 30-40 pt night, & the Bulls'd be up by 3-4 pts, #33 starts going off, the Bulls are BLOWING MF'ers out ... any time you have 1 guy on the team shooting JUMPERS over dbl/trpl teams, that means someone's open for a clean shot/layup, in other words - FUCKING UP TEAM CHEMISTRY. MJ was the best 1-on-1 player, #33 had a greater impact on the Bulls as a team, b/c he played the TEAM game - MJ was always about MJ. Stupid mf'ers who don't know shit about b-ball'd swear #33 owes 6 rings to MJ, when in point of fact the West conf. always outscored the East in ppg, which means Bulls have to win w/ defense ... & who anchors that defense, cause it sure as hell ain't MJ - & it NEVER was (during the dynasty years.)

    Pip is my favorite player and the fact that MJ has zero rings without him gets lost on a lot of people.
    Pippin came closer to an NBA finals without Jordan than vice versa.

    Scottie Pippen was on the Dream Team and was selected as one of the top 50 players that’s ever lived. It’s not like his talents aren’t recognized.
    For most teams he’d be more productive than Jordan. He can do more.

    I agree with John S. about Scottie and John strikes me as very thoughtful and intelligent. You can find players that in a certain aspect/part of basketball are better than Scottie but in terms of the overall package when you factor in all of the different skill sets, he is just the one that has it all. Scottie cannot be #1 in any single category because his game requires him to be doing everything at all times for the team. This is why it has taken 30 years or so to completely start appreciating what he brought to the NBA but it is finally happening.

    Dude is such a hater lmfao. There was nothing Scottie did better offensively than MJ. And defensively it’s not like Scottie is vastly superior to Mike.

  • Lenny D

    MJ made Scottie Pippen and the rest of the Bulls in practice. His practice runs are legend. But, they both needed each other to win. No such thing as a one man team but Jordan was pretty close at doing that.

  • Jonathan Jackson

    John Salley is right though. He basically said " Jordan was the Second Coming " but he just couldn't view him that way. And Pippen was a more versatile player. That doesn't mean that Pippen is better than Jordan. It just meant that Pippen was the X-factor because he could do it all. Pippen is an underrated player. Everyone that played in that era knows what type of player he was and he gets nothing but Praise for it. Salley never discredited Jordan's greatness.

    MJ also knew how to draw attention either towards himself or away from himself in order to utilize the skill sets of his teammates. That's basically what John is describing. So, yea, MJ is the G.O.A.T. Just say it John, damn.

    Pippen was better than Jordan,,, Jordan was just prettier player.. his skills ability and his creativity.. but without Scotty Jordan would not have rings... Scotty was the kawhi of his time... If Scotty joined another team with a superstar he would have beat Jordan over and over again....
