Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen recently made headlines after he once again went off on Michael Jordan, making bold claims about his former teammate.
Pippen’s relationship with Jordan completely changed after the 2020 premiere of the Chicago Bulls’ 10-part docu-series ‘The Last Dance.’
The so-called ‘point forward’ didn’t like the way he was portrayed in the documentary and after that, he started attacking Jordan for whatever reason.
On Friday, Pippen boldly called Michael Jordan a ‘horrible’ player before he landed in Chicago to become Jordan’s best teammate.
Watching this makes me genuinely sad. Scottie brought so much joy to so many people. The fact that it all left him with such bitterness is a terrible shame. https://t.co/RHvmbm085V

These remarks made a lot of noise around the league, and a lot of people reacted to that.
Among them, ESPN’s Mike Greenberg had an emotional response, admitting it was sad to see Pippen saying all the things he’s said about Jordan.
These two went to six NBA Finals and won every single one of them.
They created one of the most legendary duos in NBA history and nothing can change that.

The image of the nice and quiet teammate is over for Pippen, and now he’s embraced a different role whenever he gets interviewed.
The Chicago Bulls had two of the best players in NBA history on their roster. It’s a shame that things are this bad between them.
No. 33 is ruining everything he built during all these years, and he is the only one that can stop this fallout.
The relationship with Jordan is more than ruined, and Pippen hasn’t shown any remorse about it.NEXT: Executives Around The League Have A Common Belief About Zach LaVine
