Scottie Pippen is the latest former Chicago Bulls player to be upset at Michael Jordan.
The docuseries took a behind-the-scenes look at the 1997-1998 Chicago Bulls and their run to a 6th and final championship with Jordan leading the way.
Former teammate Horace Grant has already called out Jordan as being a “liar” as well as a “snitch” in response to him being referred to the same thing during the documentary.
Now, it appears his top running mate is just as upset. According to David Kaplan of ESPN 1000 in Chicago — Scottie Pippen is “so angry” at how he was portrayed in the documentary. He was also said to be “beyond livid.”
The only things that truly looked bad on Pippen during the documentary was him struggling in Game 7 of the 1990 Eastern Conference Finals when he was suffering from a migraine. The other one was most notable when the documentary looked at Game 3 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Semifinals when Phil Jackson drew up a play for Toni Kukoc instead of Pippen. The forward refused to go back into the game for the slight.
When given the chance to say if he would do anything different, he declined.
“It’s one of those incidents where I wish it never happened,” Pippen said in the documentary. “But if I had a chance to do it over again I probably wouldn’t change it.” Jordan added his commentary for the moment, too: “It’s always going to come back to haunt him at some point, in some conversation,” he said. “Pip knows better than that.”
Even still, Scottie got plenty of love during “The Last Dance.”
Recently, Dennis Rodman spoke highly of Pippen.
“I wish he didn’t give a shit like me about what people say,” he said. “But no one could ever quite see him. He was too quiet, and he was always standing next to Michael Jordan.”
“Scottie was so underrated—and so underpaid. He should be holding his head up higher than Michael Jordan in this documentary,” Rodman said. “I think a lot of people are now realizing what he went through. The kid was a hero, in a lot of ways, during those great Bulls runs.”
