Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen played together from 1987 to 1998 and they collected six NBA Championship rings in the process. The Chicago Bulls were a dynasty, but fans have often said that Pippen does not get the credit that he deserved as part of the legendary franchise.
Scottie Pippen’s upcoming tell-all book “UNGUARDED” will spill plenty of tea. We’re not sure exactly what it will say abut MJ, but the Space Jam star might take it personally if he reads this new book.
Pippen’s social media sent out a blast to promote this upcoming book. In the description it hyped the new work as unveiling the true story behind that legendary Chicago Bulls team. In fact, it even goes as far to make the bold statement that there would be no Michael Jordan without Scottie Pippen around.
“Simply put, without Pippen, there are no championship banners — let alone six — hanging from the United Center rafters. There’s no ‘The Last Dance’ documentary. There’s no ‘Michael Jordan’ as we know him. The 1990s Chicago Bulls teams would not exist as we know them.”
The book also claims that Pippen should have “received more respect from the Bulls’ management and the media.” This was during the height of professional basketball as the Chicago Bulls were able to transition out of the basketball bubble and break into popular culture.
Scottie Pippen obviously has a lot to say and he’s apparently not getting a “Last Dance” type documentary special to share his story. His upcoming UNGUARDED book is bound to include many tidbits that fans find very interesting to discover.
