Pip doesn't just have a problem against athletic players, he has tons of issues vs strong players as well.
Pip is best as a help defender or putting pressure on passing lanes, specially on smaller players.
But a lock down defender that always takes the hardest cover is a myth.
And you base this on one video clip? I dont see why people continie to say Hill was a problem for Pippen. Hill avg 21 pts on 49% shooting. Thats good but hardly legendary. I mean, prime Pippen avg 22 ppg and you feel he couldn't score. Whats more, is the Bulls record vs the Pistins during that span was 14-2. And most of thise games were blowouts. Most of Hills pts came with the game well in hand.
