Scottie Pippen Continues Feud With Michael Jordan: ‘He Was Horrible to Play With’

The feud between Chicago Bulls’ former teammates, Micheal Jordan and Scottie Pippen does not look like it is going to end anytime soon.

According to NBC News, in a recent podcast that featured Pippen, the NBA Hall of Famer stated that Jordan was a “horrible player” and also said that he was “horrible to play with.” This “beef” has escalated since Pippen felt that Jordan did not give him enough credit for helping him win six NBA titles as the Robin to his Batman when the documentary, “The Last Dance” aired on ESPN three years ago.

Pippen appeared on an episode of “Gimme the Hot Sauce,” a podcast hosted by a former Chicago Bull teammate who played with both Jordan and Pippen, Stacey King. King is also a sports announcer for the team now.

The discussion centered around Jordan not being able to win until Pippen arrived to help the Bulls.

“Our game is a team game, and one player can’t do it,” Pippen said.

“I’ve seen Michael Jordan play before I came to play with the Bulls. You guys have seen him play. He was a horrible player. He was horrible to play with. It was all 1-on-1, shooting bad shots. And all of a sudden, we become a team and we start winning. Everybody forgot who he was.”

The feud between the former teammates has even taken a twist that no one expected in recent years. Jordan’s son, Marcus is currently dating Pippen’s former wife, Larsen Pippen.

But, Pippen also gave his opinion on the greatest player in NBA history during the conversation. Instead of Jordan or LeBron James, he leaned towards the player that had his scoring record shattered this past season by James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

“There is not a greatest player.”

“LeBron James is probably one of the greatest winners that ever played the game. He wins. Now does that make him the greatest player to ever play the game? No. Michael Jordan probably is one of the greatest individual scorers that we’ve ever seen, but probably not. It’s probably Kareem. It’s hard for me to say who’s the greatest player to ever play in the game.”

Pippen was also questioned if he could ever repair the relationship with Jordan and he swiftly responded by saying no.
