Pippen Became an All Star in 1990 In Case You Forgot and He Helped Jordan Win a Ring by Guarding Drexler and Magic the Best. out of those 1st Two Rings.
He Was the Best Defender in the Bulls by Far and The Best Perimeter Defender in the League.
He Had More Responsabilities than Jordan because He Was the Point-Forward Under a Trinagle that Diminished His Stats. He Had To Do More Stuff than Just Score. Create and Be the Best Defender in the Team is Something That Usually is Given to 2 Different Players, Yet Pippen Had No Problem With That and Did Both Jobs at a Great Level ( Not to Mention, Rebound, Score, Team Defend etc)
He Had To Create (Something Jordan finally Accepted since Phil Was Trying to Make Jordan Understand This and Finally It Happened), Be the 2nd Lead Scorer, Be The 2nd Lead Rebounder, Be The Best Defender, Be The Best Team Defender and Play as a Teamate More than a Star.
Pippen`s 1991 Stats while Being the Best Individual Defender For Those Play-Offs and Finals (Defensive Rating Agrees): 20.8 PPG (45.3% FG), 9.4 RPG, 6.6 APG, 2.4 SPG and 1.0 BPG.
If Those are Not All Star Level Stats Then What Are?
1991 NBA all-defensive FIRST
team: MICHAEL JORDAN.
1991 NBA all-defensive SECOND
team: SCOTTIE PIPPEN.
OVERRATED Pippen could not even get to all-defensive first team in 1991 by age 25. It took him another year.
Barkley is full of cr@@p as usual. over crediting pippen to deliberately undermine MJ.
