    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.

    That second play that never happens in the NBA anymore once the person who is Scottie turns around they give up immediately and watch let alone block it

    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

    In their prime yrs, MJ and Scottie are 1st team all defense and rodman was averaging 20 boards per game..

  • Barstool Blues

    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

    It's hard to judge Scottie's greatness by looking at his stat sheet. Jason Kidd, Karl Malone, and Michael himself picked Scottie as their all-time starting SF. Kobe said Scottie was just as relentless as Michael on the court. Steve Kerr said "Scottie would score four points and dominate the game". Michael wanted to share the 97 Finals MVP Award with Scottie and said "We're a tandem. It's hard to split us up."

    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.

    Huge fan of Scottie and huge fan of Kobe... but come on, the way te game is played today, no rookie should come in and look to play aggressive defense. That type of ball died on 2000s. A lot of what Scottie did would be called a foul today... now I'm not saying defense isn't important. It is. I'm just saying today's defense is nothing like how Scottie played it...

    Scottie Pippen was so disruptive on defense to the point that opposing teams could not even set up their offense. Pippen was an octopus. Phil Jackson once called Pippen a "One Man Wrecking Crew." Pippen would applied pressure on the point guard for the entire length of the court. Then he would intercept cross court passes with his long arms. He would block shots from behind similar to what Michael Jordan does. Jordan and Pippen both were so good on defense. That is why they won six championships. Defense win championships.
