Scottie Pippen

  1. What four guys would Jordan choose for a pickup game? Pippen, Magic, Worthy, Olajuwon

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:29 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    Fairly safe to say Michael Jordan in his prime could have selected me, Seth Rogen, Sammy Hagar and Dave Navarro and we would win virtually every game and stay on the court. But when the folks at NBA 2K asked him (as they promote the 2K14 Next Gen features) he went a different direction. The four…

  2. 1991 Scottie Pippen sandwich commercial is best/worst ad ever (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    This was bouncing around the interwebs today and it is simply too good not to pass along — a 1991 ad for Mr. Submarine sandwich shop featuring Scottie Pippen. “Ladies, let’s have a party.” From the shorts to the teased out 1990s hair on the cheerleaders to the large phallic sandwich that the girls get…

  3. Pippen won’t face criminal charges for altercation outside Malibu restaurant

    Aug 27, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Scottie Pippen won’t be facing criminal charges for his role in an altercation with a man outside a Malibu restaurant back in June, according to multiple reports. The details were allegedly ugly from Pippen’s perspective, and it sounds as though he might have been the actual victim here. That’s especially true after hearing the results…

  4. Obama spent part of election day playing hoops with Pippen

    Nov 6, 2012, 6:15 PM EDT

    100316_obama_basketball_ap__regular

    You know how in college you woke up after about two hours of sleep before the 9 a.m. test you were cramming for most of the night before, and when you got out of bed you were kind of resigned to a “I’ve tried, whatever happens now happens” attitude. Sounds like Barack Obama is there…

  5. Karl Malone says he would have taken Pippen over Jordan

    Jun 13, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan Scottie Pippen Flu Game

    Note to NBA team owners: Don’t make Karl Malone your general manager. Malone was on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday, talking about the Dream Team (be sure to watch the new documentary on NBA TV tonight, it rocks) and as part of the conversation he talked about Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. And Malone has…

  6. Isiah Thomas gets shredded in new Dream Team documentary

    Jun 12, 2012, 5:51 PM EDT

    1992-dreamteam

    Last night I watched a preview copy of the NBA Dream Team documentary that airs on NBA TV Wednesday, highlighting the 20th anniversary of the original (and greatest) Dream Team and their run up to and through the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Watch it. It is fantastic stuff. Great stories, a reminder of how huge this…

  7. Kobe Bryant explains why “I don’t take charges”

    May 15, 2012, 9:49 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant played along side Derek Fisher for years, one of the better guards at drawing the charge in the league for many years. But you don’t see Kobe take them. Pretty much ever. And he said Tuesday there is a reason for that. From the Associated Press: “I learned from my predecessors, man,” Bryant…

  8. Drawing lines: Ambition vs. delusion (feat. Jordan Crawford!)

    Oct 28, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    6064331_600x338

    In the slim chance that you hadn’t heard, Jordan Crawford, per Michael Lee of the Washington Post, said one of those things NBA players just aren’t supposed to say: “I don’t tell nobody, but I feel like I can be better than Michael Jordan,” Crawford said, without the slightest hint of sarcasm. “When I’m done…

  9. Phil Jackson backs Jerry Krause for Hall of Fame

    Oct 28, 2011, 8:30 AM EDT

    Jerry Krause

    Phil Jackson and former Bulls GM Jerry Krause are not exactly the best of friends. Their feud helped break up the Bulls dynasty. The two did not speak for more than a decade and it took Tex Winter going into the Hall of Fame — and him wanting those two to kiss and make up……

  10. Pippen clarifies: Someday, maybe, LeBron could be best ever

    Oct 5, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    There is nobody, anywhere, who thinks that right now LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan was. Not even Kid LeBron, Business LeBron or Wise LeBron. Bulls’ legend Scottie Pippen stepped in a pile of trouble earlier this year suggesting LeBron could be a better player than MJ. Then Pippen backtracked. Even LeBron didn’t want…

  11. Horace Grant says Bulls’ Boozer needs to be like Pippen

    Sep 30, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    It’s no real secret that the Chicago Bulls need to add some versatility to their offense. Our own John Krolik talked about that in his post about what the Bulls need to do when the lockout ends — when LeBron James locked down Derrick Rose in the fourth quarter of playoff games, Chicago had no…

  12. Dennis Rodman never had a conversation with Michael Jordan or Scottie Pippen in Chicago

    Sep 21, 2011, 2:33 PM EDT

    Dennis Rodman

    Sport lends itself to the romantic. That much is true, and it was true long before legendary talents turned sportswriters into scribes of myths, before Robert Redford ever swung a bat, and before the imagination of a daydreaming kid allowed him to fill the gaps in the life of his favorite athlete. We sports fans…

  13. Judgement helps get Pippen his airplane money back

    Aug 18, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Chicago Bulls

    Scottie Pippen once owned his own airplane — Air Pip. Seriously. That was the name. I’m not clever enough to make that up. As I imagine happened to everything ever named Air Pip, the deal went bad. Everything fell apart and back in 2004 Pippen lost a $5 million judgment to U.S. Bank over the…

  14. Dennis Rodman gives emotional Hall of Fame speech

    Aug 12, 2011, 10:38 PM EDT

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony - Red Carpet

    Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are by their nature emotional. This year’s was no different. There were memorable moments, watching Tex Winter get up to the stage, Artis Gilmore finally being recognized, Theresa Edwards’ powerful speech. Dennis Rodman was Dennis Rodman — raw, emotional, wearing a sequin jacket with his number and saying Pistons and…

  15. Mullin says Jordan toughest defender, Richmond best teammate

    Aug 10, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Chris Mullin HOF

    Chris Mullin is headed into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame on Friday, maybe the most legendary of Warrior players to enter the Hall (you can argue Rick Barry if you want). Fittingly Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com has done a series of interesting interviews with Mullin talking about his career. Wednesday’s installment: Who was the…

  16. PBT’s RetroBall: Pistons-Bulls ’89 and Jordan’s good bad day

    Jul 3, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    jordanout

    Since billionaire owners and millionaire players are bitterly divided over how much money they’ll be splitting over the coming years and have locked us out of actual basketball to talk about, PBT will be regaling you this summer on the weekends with RetroBall. Using the advanced powers of the internet and NBATV, we’ll bring you…

  17. Artest to play in Finland? That’s one report… and it is false

    Artest_Lakers

    UPDATE 8:57 pm: As much fun as this sounded like, it turns out not to be true. 10:47 am: We warn you to take this report out of Finland with more salt than you would use to make graavikala — traditional Finnish salt-cured fish. So a lot. But the Finnish paper iltasanomat.fi is reporting Ron…

  18. Scottie Pippen does not think LeBron is better than Michael Jordan

    Jun 24, 2011, 8:48 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Chicago Bulls

    After the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls in five games behind some incredible offensive, defensive, and crunch-time performances by LeBron James, former Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen went on the radio and said that he believes LeBron “may be the greatest player to ever play the game.” A few weeks after LeBron folded in the…

  19. Sporting News calls ’96 Bulls best team ever, hard to argue

    Jun 16, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan dunk

    Just another reminder that Michael Jordan still runs the show. The Sporting News has named its top 10 NBA teams off all time and they named the 1995-96 Bulls — Michael Jordan’s 72 win team with Scottie Pippen, Toni Kukoc, and Phil Jackson as coach — got the top spot. Um, pretty hard to argue…

  20. Steve Kerr says LeBron more Pippen than Jordan

    Jun 13, 2011, 1:37 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    A player’s shortcomings become magnified in the finals. What was odd about LeBron James’ playing passively through the last few games of the NBA finals is that he’d been so good earlier in these playoffs — he was Miami’s best player against Boston and Chicago. He attacked in the face of the challenge of Boston’s…

  21. Stan Van Gundy wonders if Pippen was actually great

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Chicago Bulls

    Scottie Pippen is one of the NBA’s official 50 Greatest Players of All Time. He is a Hall of Famer. He has six rings. But is he overrated? There are a lot of people who think he is, and Pippen has always chaffed at that idea, that he was Robin to Jordan’s Batman. You can…

  22. Kareem writes open letter to Pippen about LeBron, Jordan

    May 31, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Everyone has climbed all over Scottie Pippen in recent days for putting LeBron James on the same pedestal with Michael Jordan, calling Jordan the best scorer of all time but LeBron a potentially better all around player. At best it felt a little premature. In Chicago that was blasphemy. Now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has entered the…

  23. LeBron says he’s no Jordan, no matter what Pippen thinks

    May 28, 2011, 10:04 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Scottie Pippen took plenty of heat for having the temerity to put anybody on Michael Jordan’s perch. Especially somebody half the country hates. It stuck his as a bit early to say a mid-career LeBron should be on that level. And LeBron feels the same way, he told Marc Spears at Yahoo, although he dances around…

  24. Scottie Pippen calls Carlos Boozer “liability”

    May 28, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Scottie Pippen was on fire Friday. Not in a “that man speaks the truth” way so much as a “he’s going to get a lot of ink” way. After lighting a fire with his Jordan/LeBron comments, Pippen spoke with ESPNChicago late on Friday and called out Carlos Boozer for his play for the Bulls in…

  25. Pippen: Jordan greatest scorer ever, LeBron best player

    May 27, 2011, 10:48 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Scottie Pippen has said what will be viewed as no less than blasphemy in Chicago. The Hall of Fame player was interviewed on ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike show Friday morning (via NBA.com’s Sekou Smith) following the Heat’s comeback win to eliminate the Bulls and he compared Michael Jordan and LeBron James. “Michael Jordan is…
