Was Scottie Pippen Jealous Of Michael Jordan?
Was Scottie Pippen jealous of Michael Jordan? That is the question some are asking following the release of The Last Dance.
Recently, Jordan’s agent David Falk came out and addressed that very subject.
“Pippen has a certain level of jealousy towards Michael,” Falk said.
“He has said recently many times he thinks LeBron’s a better player. Now, if you’re Scottie Pippen, and Michael Jordan made your career, completely made your career; even if you think that, keep it to yourself.”
“Scottie’s problem, as the documentary points out in so many different places after the episodes you’ve seen, is that he wasn’t a great competitor,” Falk said.
“There were times for silly reasons. The migraine; you think that Michael Jordan [would do that] unless he had his leg amputated?”
It will be interesting to get more insight into the Jordan-Pippen relationship as the documentary progresses.
