Almost 4 years after The Last Dance, Scottie Pippen is once again set to tell the Chicago Bulls story through a new lens. The 6x champion teamed up with former teammates Horace Grant and Luc Longley for the trip. The legends have already set out for the “No Bulls” tour.
However, it seems rather than support, the endeavor is getting highly criticized by the fans. Even some notable personalities also seem to have expressed their disappointment.

In the recent episode of Gilbert Arenas’ podcast show, Gil’s Arena, Agent Zero discussed the entire situation. During the conversation, former NBA guard Brandon Jennings voiced his disappointment on it. “That’s sad, the way he going out.” Arenas pitched in by saying “They gotta be careful with their words while I’m watching it.”

The 6x champion’s discontent with his portrayal in ‘The Last Dance’ series is not a surprise to the ardent fans. In his book ‘Unguarded,’ Pippen openly expressed his dissatisfaction with how the docuseries depicted him. “They glorified Michael Jordan while not giving nearly enough praise to me and my proud teammates. Michael deserved a large portion of the blame.” 

He further explained, “The producers had granted him editorial control of the final product. The doc couldn’t have been released otherwise. He was the leading man and the director.” Now, the 3x champion and his former teammates have embarked on a tour, to offer fans a glimpse into the lesser-known behind-the-scenes stories of the Bulls’ triumphant journey to three championship titles.
