Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan spent ten seasons playing and building the 1990s legendary Bulls dynasty together, they are still regarded as one of the best pairings in all of sports. In his new serialized autobiography “Unguarded” the NBA Allstar has written some bitter things about Michael Jordan.
“How dare Michael treat us that way after everything we did for him and his precious brand,” the former Bulls wrote in the opening pages of the memoir Unguarded, set to hit bookstores on Nov. 9
Pippen recalls that he and MJ were never close friends and still aren’t. Among many other observations, he noted that Jordan would’ve never become a superstar if it wasn’t for him and that he was always a better teammate than MJ.
In another recently released exclusive excerpt from his memoir, Pippen recalls being “upset” with Jordan over how he and the other members were portrayed in The Last Dance documentary series, saying people glorified Michael too highly and didn’t give him enough credit.
While Pippen’s book awaits next Tuesday’s release in which he expresses his disdain, rapper Rick Ross had his own opinion on Pippen. Ross expressed his irritation and dropped a few choice words and advice for Pippen.
“So look I gotta question and it’s related to Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and business. I just came across where Scottie Pippen said Michael Jordan got paid $10 million for the documentary and he and his teammates received nothing. First thing that comes to my mind is, “F— you Scottie Pippen.’ You ain’t handle your business when you were negotiating your own contract 30 years ago, you got f—–. And what you want, Mike to negotiate your contract? Then when it came to this documentary you got f—- again and waited two years to say I got f—-d,” the Hustin’ rapper remarked.
While we would never endorse the language used by Ross. The Rapper has made some interesting observations. Whether Pippen likes it or not, Michael Jordan will always be a GOAT.
