Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls were arguably the most dominant teams to run the basketball court. More specially, the duo of MJ and Scottie Pippen worked miracles for the team much before the arrival of Dennis Rodman. Throughout the 90s, they put fear into the minds of many teams that were competing against them, especially in the finals when Jordan was his absolute best version.
Michael “His Airness” Jordan would become the greatest player ever after his career with the Bulls. Today, many players have taken inspiration from the 90s Bulls roster, especially MJ. Current NBA veteran and fellow NBA great LeBron James has also been a follower of Jordan’s career. As we all know, there is an ongoing between both players on who is the greatest of all time.
WWE Star Dax Harwood throws shade at Scottie Pippen during an AEW event
ESPN had recently paid a visit to an AEW event where they asked people whom they thought was the greatest player of all time between LBJ and MJ. Picking between two legends of high-caliber basketball playing has been the biggest reason why the debate still continues, while many refuse to pick a side some also chose their favorite. Other celebrities and sportsmen also often give their opinions to fellow peers.
Former WWE Superstar Dax Harwood was asked who he would pick as the greatest. In a surprising turn of events, the wrestler decided to say, “Scottie Pippen is a little bi**h.” This was a jab at the recent controversies between Jordan and Pippen following the airing of the Last Dance documentary series. He would also call out Shaquille O’Neal saying, “Hey, Yes Shaq, don’t forget we got a pay-per-view. I am calling you out. If you ever want to jump into professional wrestling one more time with a real wrestler, holler at your boys.”
Scottie Pippen calls an end to his relationship with Michael Jordan
Even though Scottie Pippen shared the court with MJ many times during his career, Pippen started to talk about how he felt that the Last Dance was not an accurate representation of Jordan’s attitude towards his Bulls teammates. Jordan was not necessarily the kindest of all players, but his mentality towards them was to help them better themselves and become better players.
Pippen claimed that many other teammates of his and Jordan’s also felt the same way about the documentary saying it was “disrespectful”. He said, “I spoke to a number of my former teammates who each felt as disrespected as I did. How dare Michael treat us that way after everything we did for him and his precious brand.” This seemed like the end of the duo’s relationship but what really confirmed them severing the ties was when Pippen did not show up at Cleveland when they announced the 75th-anniversary team during the All-Star games. Both Dennis Rodman and Michael were physically present, however.
