Unlike Jordan, who stayed popular after his retirement, the same cannot be said after Pippen retired. What began as a feud after Jordan’s documentary, ‘The Last Dance,’ keeps escalating as months pass by. The most recent instance of this was when Scottie Pippen called Michael Jordan, his former pal a “horrible player.”

Scottie Pippen has stirred up controversy with his recent comments. Even though Jordan and Pippen were once teammates, the latter has now begun to harbour envy towards his former teammate. Or at least that’s what his recent comments suggest. In a recent appearance on the podcast ‘Gimme the Hot Sauce,’ he finally expressed his feelings in words.

Pippen said, “I’ve seen Michael Jordan play before I came to play with the Bulls. You guys seen him play. He was a horrible player, he was horrible to play with. He was all one on one, he’s shooting bad shots and all of a sudden, we become a team and we start winning. Everybody forgot who he was.”
