    Great analysis kobe like always. Scottie pippen is the best defensive player ever in my opinion!He would absolutely destroy the golden state warriors today on defense.

    This is something like conditioning a player into thinking that hes going to press up on him in the paint, and since scottie knows that he backs off?

    Pippen had all the physical tools to play defense and then he went and did it like his job depended on it - probably the best defender I've ever seen play live over the course of a career.

    Someone tell why MJ has a dpoy award even he was never a better perimeter defender or more versatile defender than pippin? MJ the goat but pippin just gets shit on by MJ fanboys. Zero rings without pip

    I feel like Scottie's style is actually tailor made for today's game, a 3 and D guy with great length and athleticism. Ain't no slouch on offense either. Given how soft the league is today he'll probably do even better.

    kobe is wrong, m jackson was very slow player, so scottie could pressure him like that without worry about him blowing by..with the pg's nowdays and couple back then he couldnt pressure them full court like that. scottie was probably the best all around defender ever cause he was taller n longer and almost as athletic as lebron..he was almost as quick and most importantly he gave EFFORT and gad a pretty good offensive game as well..one of the greats

  • IFollowAfter

    Not taking anything from Scottie, but in today's game 1:37 is an easy 3. You can't play monster man in today's game like that because all 5 players can shoot so well. Pippen is essentially not guarding Oakley or #54 Smith because he knows they can't shoot. However, I get Kobe's point about the energy level.

    what's crazy is that MJ was even a better defender. sure, he didn't have Pippen's length, and he might not have focused on it as much in later years, but trust me, he was better.
    young kids don't even realize that Chicago Bulls used to kill teams by defense, rather than scoring

    Back then players were taught to move the ball to the basket. You could come up with some decent defensive transactions. Now, every player shoots the three, they also can shoot it deep.
    That's more floor to cover which makes DEFENSE harder. Playing defense is over looked.

    Saying that you should play defense like Scottie Pippen is like saying you should play offense like Michael Jordan. Easier said than done. Great analysis by Kobe though.

    Scottie defends like I do in 2k which makes it easy to see everything since it’s from a high point of view and I just think it’s crazy how Scottie can defend like he’s sees the whole court. Brilliant

    Thank you Kobe. Not many people give/gave Scottie his props. That man played D that was attacking, disruptive, ahead of the play. He played D that made plays, not sit and react. Has anybody looked at all time steals leaders along with blocks? Look where Scottie is. Used to be a waterboy and now NBA Top 50 with 6 rings and a place in the HOF. Greatest Robin of all time and accepted that. Look at all the Bulls historical records. Look where he places. 23 & 33 = 6 (2*3 or 3+3 is 6 all day!) ====> Obviously a Bulls fan since 1980 when I started watching NBA in 1st grade.

    Best defensive player ive ever seen and I grew up in Chicago in the 90's. He drew the tough assignments most nights so Jordan could dominate offensively. It's crazy to think about having probably the 2 best defensive players ever on the same team. Rodman was a monster defensively as well.
