The Chicago Bulls were, are, and will forever be Michael Jordan’s team.
Scottie Pippen spent his entire career in Jordan’s shadow, and not even all the praise he’s gotten throughout the years has been enough to shake that off.
Notably, though, people actually respected him and looked up to him anyways, citing him as one of the greatest small forwards of all time and making it more than clear that Jordan would’ve never won six rings without his contributions on both ends of the floor.
That’s why everyone seems to be disappointed and in disbelief of Pippen’s recent strings of criticism of Jordan, with him even calling Jordan a “horrible basketball player.”
With that in mind, Dan Patrick said that all those petty comments just feel personal right now.

Patrick pointed out that Scottie missed out on his contract and failed to capitalize on his greatness, so he’s now taking shots at Jordan because of that.
Truth be told, there’s no way to state that Pippen isn’t one of the greatest players to ever do it; there’s just no way to put it.
No one has ever tried to take anything away from him and what he did on the court en route to winning six NBA championships.
So, why does he feel the need to take Jordan down every time he gets the opportunity to talk hoops?
Jordan has never graced Pippen’s comments with a response, and that only makes it seem a little more desperate to get his attention.NEXT: Analyst Proposes An Interesting Jaylen Brown Trade
