I’m not exactly sure what Scottie Pippen’s end game is, but he is most certainly trying to burn everything down in his path over the past couple of days.
Following a feud with Kevin Durant, he set his sights on former head coach Phil Jackson.
On the Dan Patrick show, the former NBA player was speaking on the time he refused to go back in the game when the final play wasn’t made for him, but for Toni Kukoc. Pippen refused to enter the game as a result, though Kukoc hit the game-winning shot.
Dan Patrick: “By saying ‘racial move’ then you’re calling Phil Jackson a racist.”
Scottie Pippen: “I don’t have a problem with that.”
Patrick: “Do you think Phil was?”
Pippen: “Oh yeah …”
Pippen also brought up some other examples from Jackson’s time with the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant.
The 55-year-old Pippen played 17 NBA seasons, winning six championships with the Chicago Bulls.
Jackson, of course, was the Bulls’ head coach from 1989-98. He was then the Lakers’ head coach from 1999-2004 and 2005-11.
