Retired NBA star Scottie Pippen is regarded as a legend by many. However, at the same time, he is viewed as a controversial figure in the world of professional basketball. This is especially true after his recent comments on various people.
A lot of his recent bitterness can be attributed to the fact that Pippen lost his first-born son Antron earlier this year as his son tragically passed away due to an unknown cause. Since then his life has been very difficult.
While speaking on his podcast, Shaquille O’Neal talked about Scottie Pippen claiming he was better than Michael Jordan. O’Neal threatened to beat up Pippen if he ever says that in front of O’Neal.
”He didn’t say that. He never said that. If that man say that in front of me, Imma hit him right in the esophagus. Yeah Imma drop him, do not finish that sentence.”
Scottie Pippen also recently backtracked on his claim that Michael Jordan ruined basketball. Regardless, there are many who do not take Scottie Piven seriously and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
