Michael Jordan helped Scottie Pippen win six NBA championships and vice versa.
Jordan constantly uplifted Pippen and admitted that he could’ve never done what he did without him.
Even in The Last Dance series, Jordan made it more than evident that Pippen was a vital part of the team’s success, even if he didn’t always put the team first.
However, over the past couple of years or so, Pippen has done nothing but take constant shots at the Chicago Bulls legend.
This time, the legendary forward claimed that The Last Dance was nothing but a publicity stunt to stay relevant in today’s world:
“I just thought it was really something to hype up his career to make him more relevant in today’s world,” Pippen said on Stacey King’s Gimme the Hot Sauce. “(It’s been) pretty much 25 years since we won our last championship, so no one really remembers the Chicago Bulls – especially a lot of the kids that are now coming into the game. They weren’t even watching basketball, they were barely even born. So I felt like that was something he did to sort of bring himself back and really give this modern day era an opportunity to see what his playing was like in the NBA.”

However, Jordan has never stopped being relevant, and he didn’t need a documentary for that.
Even while most younger fans could be tempted to think that LeBron James — or any other player — is the greatest of all time, Jordan has always been a part of the conversation, documentary or not.
Pippen even wrote a book to talk dirt on Jordan, who hasn’t even graced his criticism with a response — and likely won’t.
Notably, fans online have called Pippen out over and over for his constant shots at Jordan, and it’s definitely not a good look for one of the greatest players of all time.NEXT: Former NBA Star Sees This Season As A 'Failure' For Celtics
