I'll start by saying, I love scottie pippen. As a fan of the Michael Jordan led Bulls, I always loved Scottie's abilities, defensive presence and Jordan's deputy status. Of course, I knew who that MJ was the greatest, on that team, and overall.
So when Scottie spouted off about Michael may be the greatest scorer of all time, but that Lebron may end up being the best all around player of all time, I was disgusted. Scottie should know better. He saw superman up close and personal. He saw that Jordan's skill, drive, competitive spirit etc. is second to none. Jordan was a monster on offense and a monster on defense. He took entire teams of bums (jud buechler? wilt perdue? pete myers? i could go on and on) and made them champions.
Lebron is nowhere close. He hasnt made his teammates better, in cleveland or in miami. Hes not a monster on defense. And he couldnt win where he was, he had to leave cleveland and join a team with better players for a shot to win. So Scottie and all others, shut the fuck up with the Lebron is or could be better than Jordan. Him trying to join a franchise that is trying to 'buy' a championship puts a full stop on any discussions about his greatness, now or in the future.
Then, along comes Kareem to educate Scottie about how MJ is not the greatest scorer. He believes that honor belongs to fossils like Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain. Fucking seriously? Those tall fossils played against a bunch of little boys and sat under the basket and threw the ball into Bozo's bucket number 1. Get a life Kareem.
All that being said, MAVS in 6 over the Heat. Get some!
