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.

Scottie Pippen has come after the likes of Michael Jordan, calling him out for being selfish. He also called out LeBron James over his NBA Championship win and even Kevin Durant.

Despite this, Scottie Pippen certainly has a lot of respect for LeBron James, who has proved himself to be one of the best basketball players in the history of the game. James has been playing for 19 years and still manages to play at a top-level, whenever he can.

While speaking to Fox Soul, Scottie Pippen talked about LeBron James’ longevity in the game and the secret behind it. It all came down to James being an intelligent player.

“It’s amazing to see him still able to have what I see is a full tank. Even though he (LeBron James) got the power and the skill, his biggest attribute is his IQ. He know he can kill you, he don’t try to kill you. That’s part of why he got such longevity.”

LeBron James isn’t exactly having the best of times as of late after suffering injuries, suspension and his Los Angeles Lakers team not doing all so well in the season right now.
