Biggest drop off ever in Finals history in ppg average.

He went from 27 ppg to 17 ppg.

A 10 ppg drop off ... IN THE NBA FINALS !!!

More similar yes. But better scorer and worse defender-overall better player.

He averaged 22 ppg in 1994 and was at 22 ppg in 95' before MJ came back.

Lebron is a better player but Pippen is the superior finals performer. 21/9/8, 21/8/8, 21/9/7.

It's not quite the exact quote...he basically said Bronzy has Jordan's talent, with Pippen's skillset. and lacks the mentality.

Damn. Pippen was a beast. Transform those stats to 80s and its an easy triple double. And that's not even counting the defensive side of the ball. In which he's the goat from the perimeter

Scottie Pippen deserves to be disrespected for making stupid statements and comparisons.

Lebron showed that he can be more athletic than Pippen.

But Pippen is definitely more skilled though. He can do things on the post and has better footwork doing moves Lebron just can't at this point.

Pippen's easily more skilled in the post, but I wouldn't say he was a more skilled offensively player overall. Didn't really have the face-up game LeBron did.

Or the court vision. Which is LeBron's best actual basketball skill. LeBron is also a superior ball handler. About same in terms of shooting. LeBron's a better scorer overall. LeBron is a better finisher (excluding this year) ... Pippen's the better defender.

true. But I'd say Pippen is slightly better all around. Not to overrate him at all or anything though but I feel he just made that type of impact on the Bulls.

Jordan has more competetive fire in his belly than the entire big 3 put together.

That's not necessarily a knock on them, just that the comparison was always silly to begin with.

LeBron plays basketball because he's very good at it, has a lot of god given ability, and it's fun to play.

He doesn't have the mentality of Jordan which is to basically destroy anyone and anything that got in his way of an NBA championship.

MJ actually told Pippen to say that before the Finals. It worked since it messed with lebron's head.

So tell us Scottie, now that the shoe is on the other foot, how does it feel to be insulted like that...
