Bulls’ Scottie Pippen slams Michael Jordan: ‘He was a horrible player’

The 1990s were a beautiful time for the Chicago Bulls. They were on top of the world. Led by Michael Jordan, they won six championships and never lost in the NBA Finals. They dominated for nearly an entire decade. From 1990 to 1998, the only two years they didn’t win the title were when Jordan left the NBA to pursue a baseball career.

Jordan didn’t do it alone, though. He had Scottie Pippen by his side for every title, and the duo towered over the league. However, there is evidently no love lost between the two players. On Stacey King’s “Gimme The Hot Sauce” podcast, Pippen slammed his long-time teammate.

Pippen had some high praise for Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, calling him the best statistical player ever.

“LeBron will be the greatest statistical guy to ever play the game of basketball,” Pippen said. “And there’s no comparison to him. None. So does that make him the greatest player to ever play the game?”

He then went on to call Jordan a “horrible player.”

“I’ll leave that up for debate, because I don’t believe there’s a great player because our game’s a team game, and one player can’t do it,” said Pippen. “I saw Jordan play before I came to play with the Bulls. You guys saw him play. He was a horrible player. He was horrible to play with. He was all one-on-one, he’s shooting bad shots, and all of a sudden we become a team and we start winning and everybody forgot who he was.”

Jordan is widely regarded as the best player in the history of basketball, but according to Pippen, he was nothing before the Bulls became an effective team.
