    That was what everyone overlooks defence!! Scottie Pippen deserves soo much praise. In chicagos scrimmages mj used to make scottie go into the other to help develop his own game because he understood that he had an all time defensive genius in scottie who puts more pressure on him than anyone in the league during thAt era. When it comes to defence scottie is easily top 5 all time in my opinion

    Jordan was always the 2nd best athlete on the floor, well at least from 91 on. Scottie was the prototype, the best defender on the court.

    It’s funny that Kobe gives Pip props cuz he picked on Scottie hard along with Barkley.They couldn’t get with Michael so they took it out on poor Pippen 🤣😂🤣 🇲🇽mCzr🇺🇸

    I remember this series back in the day. I remember Phil Jackson putting Pippen on Jackson and thought it was a brilliant adjustment. Jackson was a great post up PG and was killing the bulls in the post until Pippen started guarding him. He shut Jackson down. I remember feeling sorry for Jackson because it was almost not fair Pippen was guarding him. Haha. Pippen is one of the all time greatest defender. His defensive stats may not seem that way because one of his greatest ability was fronting his man with constant pressure. To this day I can’t understand how he never won a DPOY. The man was relentless on defense every game.

    Kobe is already the top defender and still giving Scottie such a huge compliment. You ought to know how good was Scottie‘s defence.

    You can see MJ do the same in his highlights. Backing away from contact and getting the steal. Only shows you how much more physical they were back then. They fall down when the defense backs off.

    Scottie was a TRUE defensive mastermind.
    But let's be honest, in todays NBA @0:22 @0:27 @0:50 and @0:52 would all be called fouls by these Charmin refs and Single-Ply league.

  • Elementary Watson
    Elementary Watson 3 months ago

    Looking at this shows just how much tougher defense is these days because of good three point shooters spacing the floor. Pippen is good 1 on 1 but many of the team defensive schemes simply wouldn't work in the current NBA. Why the fuck is the shooting guards standing near the elbow drawing in his defender to the ball handler? lol. NBA is so better today

    lol if this is kyrie, steph or any great ballhandler of this era, scottie has been ankle break on the first play. imagine if that player stop and make a behind the back dribble. Lol former era is hard classic but this era has greater talents from ball handling to three point shooting range haha

  • Barstool Blues
    Barstool Blues 3 months ago

    Scottie would be just as good if not better if he had played post illegal defense. What made him so great was his help/team defense and with no illegal defense he'd be an even bigger terror than he already was now that he wouldn't actually have to stick to his man if he didn't feel like it. He was already everywhere because he could cover so much ground, but now he'd really just terrorize offenses since he could just play off his man whenever he felt like it.

    There are stories of how Pippen used to call out an opposing teams play before that team even knew they were going to run it. He was a genius when it came to defense. It's criminal that he never won a DPOY when so many inferior defensive players have one. He is the best perimeter defender of all time, period.

    If we play all time NBA fantasy draft. Head up with me and someone else. and I get first pick! I don't take Jordan, Kobe or Lebron. I don't take Magic or Kareem either. First pick in drafting the greatest dream team of 5 players starts with Scottie Pippen! One of the most underrated players ever!

    Scottie was an amazing player to have on your team in his peak. Could run the fast break as a forward and can guard four positions. Played better defense than Jordan and played the point half of the times. Scottie could even take over games. If not for his defense against Magic in the finals, no championship that season. Best defensive player in the history of the NBA. Not Dennis Rodman. Olojowan 2nd

    No, No, No Kobe!!! Let the MJ jizz jugglers tell it, Scottie owes his defensive skills to MJ, he owes EVERYTHING to MJ, hell Scottie owes getting drafted to MJ - cuz Scottie didn't possess any talent on his own to get drafted in the 1st place - do ALL of the research next time pls ...

    Kobe's a bball genius. Would scottie be sxottie if he didnt enter the league playing along side insane basketball psychos and evil geniuses of destruction like michael jordan or bird or magic. Any other team he has the ability but their is no psycho like a kobe or mike or bird and his team to push him ro his max potential. Meaning jf hes on a team with a talented but more relaxed star does he ever get this great? What if, right. We will never know and scottie became a super human on the bulls.

    With all that bieng shown. He never won a defensive player of the year award. Nor pippen or kobe but these guys knew defense. These type of guys fizzled out after Ron Artest and Bruce Bowen. Those were level measures for kobes rise. They were able to clamp on kobe (bowen,artest) until they couldnt anymore and kobe became jordan 2.0 . Kawai is the latest but a little bitch. Pippen would of had the lebron numbers if MJ would of never returned after the first retirement. He was that lethal. Gotta thank MJ for teaching him alot when he was lost.
