I love the line "The Bulls are undefeated under Jim Boylan in regulation." That really gives you something to hang your hat on.

If the Players? can't stand the Heat,cancel your contract and get the Hell out of sports.Use your College Education? to go on with your life.Quit being a whiner.Use that degree you earned in "International Trade" and get into the Import/Export buisness like your Brothers.

Pippen told the truth. You had Gordon and Kirk trying to play point guard when they both are two guards. True they are both midgets and cannot play defense on taller guards. Pax, you have to trade one of them.

I think Pippen is capable of easily being as gifted an executive and coach as Isaiah Thomas. Both Mensa candidates.

Does Pippen want to coach or play? This past week he has played for a Finland team scoring 12 points in one of them. At least that's what a competing newspaper reported.

Obviously, you have no insight into the game of basketball. Pippen is one of the smartest players to ever play the game.(Please spare me comments about the 3 second sit-out).

Get a real GM who can get players and understand "The Business" and make Paxson the coach. End of issue!

Sam, you didn't really address Pippen's complaint, i.e., that he was speaking in general terms. Did he? If so, you do owe him and us an apology.

Scottie, your comment are true as a die hard Bulls fan I see what you see. The guards are too small. They need to develop Theobo Sefeloshia or package him in a trade for a bigger guard. Same with Thomas because he plays out of control and on his own planet most of the time. Ben Wallace need a certain system to help his game so trade for Rasheed Wallace or trade him. The Bulls could be a great team if the can fit a team with the same idenity. Scrappy went away when Skile was fired.

Well, I hated Pippen as a player because most of his career he wanted out of Chicago. Why is he still here? Just go away.

I assume you mean the first championship when Scottie was moved to defend Magic Johnson and shut him down.

Check-out Pip's original comments. They were not general, they were specific. And its curious why he's now backing-off somewhat - since most were accurate.

Deron Williams, Tony Parker, Allen Iverson, Dwayne Wade, Manu Ginobli, Stephan Marbury, Jason Kidd, many, many other 'dwarfs' shorter than 6'5".

We have no way of checking what Pip's comments were since we got them from Sam, not from Pippen. Make no mistake: I'm not defending Scottie, except if what he said was not accurately reported. The media has been known to do that at times.
