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.

A lot of his bitterness can be attributed to the fact that Pippen lost his first-born son Antron last year as his son tragically passed away due to an unknown cause.

While speaking with Bastien Fontanieu for Trash Talk, Scottie Pippen said that he was never able to win the Defensive Player of the Year award because the media was too busy watching Michael Jordan.

“I think they were too busy watching Michael [Jordan]”

There are many who do not take Scottie Pippen seriously and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. Perhaps one day Piven will move on from Michael Jordan, but today is not that day.
