It's not a secret that most people consider Michael Jordan to be the greatest player in NBA history. His Chicago Bulls were one of the most iconic dynasties of all time, not only in basketball but in sports overall.
The Bulls made it to 6 NBA Finals and won at that stage every single time. They won two three-peats and became the most popular team in the world after their historical 72-10 season in 1996.
Nonetheless, none of that would've been possible without Scottie Pippen also on the team, and it seems like he's done with constantly living under Michael Jordan's shadow, according to his soon-to-be-released book.
Scottie Pippen Book Reportedly Takes Shot At Michael Jordan
In the publication, Pippen reportedly tells untold stories about him, Jordan, and other personalities of the league, as well as clearing the air on some things that didn't go exactly as told on 'The Last Dance'.
"Scottie Pippen has been called one of the greatest NBA players for good reason. Simply put, without Pippen, there are no championship banners—let alone six—hanging from the United Center rafters. There’s no Last Dance documentary. There’s no “Michael Jordan” as we know him. The 1990s Chicago Bulls teams would not exist as we know them," the book reads.
"So how did the youngest of twelve go from growing up poor in the small town of Hamburg, Arkansas, enduring two family tragedies along the way, to become a revered NBA legend? How did the scrawny teen, overlooked by every major collegiate basketball program, go on to become the fifth overall pick in the 1987 NBA Draft? And, perhaps most compelling, how did Pippen set aside his ego (and his own limitless professional ceiling) in order for the Bulls to become the most dominant basketball dynasty of the last half century?" it continues.
It's common knowledge that Pippen didn't like the way he was portrayed in the documentary and that his ego was quite hurt, so we can't wait to see what he has to say about it and one of the greatest teams in NBA's history.
