no impact ?...especially for a rook?..RUserial?
- he started all of the games vs the Pistons.
By the end of the season Pippen was good enough to start in the playoff's...and come up huge for the Bull's in the Game 5 vs the Cavs...to help get them past the first round...
for the first time in what ...like 18 seasons
Dude, I was just talking about starting. Yes his Game 4 was good, but it wasn't Game 5. The Bulls made the adjustment. Look at the earlier games, like Game 1. No impact.
Who said Pippen didn't help them get past the first round ? I'm just saying Oakley played a bigger role.

LeBron didn't perform well at all for his standards that year in the Finals either. Legacy is hurt either way, can't down play it either way. He didn't play well outside of one Game in the ECF. IMO, LeBron's 2007 run is overrated.
