Scottie Pippen was on Stacy King’s, Gimme The Hot Sauce podcast and took some shots at his former team member.
He also stated, “I’ve seen Michael Jordan play before I came to play with the Bulls. You guys have seen him play. He was a horrible player. He was horrible to play with. He was all one-on-one, shooting bad shots,” Pippen said before explaining that him being added to the team drastically improved their standings. “All of a sudden, we become a team, and we start winning; everybody forgot who he was. He was a player that, really, winning wasn’t at the top of his category. It was scoring. He was going after scoring titles. It wasn’t until Phil Jackson showed up that kind of changed the menu a little bit. And that still took some time.”
