Jordan = Pippen
 
am i the only person on the world that think Jordan and Pippen are equal in terms of talent?

From my point of view the only thing Jordan has on Pippen is the alpha mentality and a better jumpshot then Pippen is a better 3pt shooter(Portland days) and better defender then everything else is debatable...

It seems that the consensus is Jordan >>>>>> Pippen... but since i grew up and watched more and more Pippen videos, it seems that Pippen was a good as Jordan... whats your opinion?

really guys?
Tell me... forget about accolades for a moment... in terms of talent, in terms of being a NBA player.

Why the gap between Jordan and Pippen is so big in the mind of some fans?

Jordan has the alpha mentality and a better mid range/jump shot game.
then...

is Jordan a better Defender?
Is Jordan a better Ballhandler?
Is Jordan a better 3pt shooter?
etc.

Sup Scottie? How come you never tip? That's kind of a dick move, especially when you've made millions of dollars playing ball.

Jordan was better shooting off the dribble, shooting off screens, shooting from the post, breaking down defenders 1 on 1, and making layups in traffic. He had a better first step, better footwork, more moves. Pippen might've had just as much raw physical talent, but Jordan was infinitely more skilled offensively.

Think of every aspect in the game when it comes to basketball.




Jordan was better than Pippen at all of them.

Is Jordan a better defender?
Is Jordan a better ballhandler?
Is Jordan a better 3pt shooter?
Is Jordan a better team player?

then if Jordan is so much better how pippen kept the bulls a strong team despite Jordan retiring?

Yes to all.

They went from a 3x Champion to a 2nd round fodder and then they were struggling in 1995 before Jordan came back from retirement.

Pippen wasn't even as good as Scott Williams. Pippen never played with a dislocated shoulder.
