Way to go Scottie. This is why you are without money and you will now never be the coach of the Bulls. You actually believe these guys would ever care to perform for you?

Yikes. Scottie's got a lot of enemies - the biggest being himself apparently.

If Scottie Pippen hadn't played with Michael Jordan, he wouldn't have made it into the top 300 NBA players. He was a chronic whiner, head-acher, and quitter, the man who uttered the single stupidest quote in NBA history, when he said that his no-championship Portland Trailblazers were better than the 90s -era Bulls. Why does anybody listen to the idiot? The smartest thing he could ever do is shut his mouth, so nobody will know exactly how stupid he is. John Paxson played with the dope, plus he's a pretty bright guy, so he'll never, ever hire Pip. My prediction: Scotty takes over for Isiah Thomas; he and the Knicks prez Dolan are a match made in stupid heaven. The good news: If Scotty thinks the current Bulls stink, they must be very good. Onward to victory, Bullies.

Who cares if he is sabotaging his own coaching career, he was never considered a possibility anyway. He speaks the truth and it is nice to read someone being honest about this collection of mediocre players. Also, he did a great job of ripping Pax on never paying that much for a rebounder. Great job Pip!

Scottie,

Great job at trying to get yourself a position on as a coach with your old team. I'm sure all those positive midget comments and constructive analysis of the roster will give you a great chance of brining chemistry and success. Yeh, your the one!

One side of the coin: Screw Pippen. If he needs money (with his legendary non-tipping tendencies, don't know how he would need more money), he can do a celebrity reality show or something.

Other side of the coin: Pip just may speak the truth, even if it hurts. That being said, after throwing people under the bus, will the players respect him enough to be coached by him?

Raise the rim and the game would be mildy exciting as a pro game. College ball is much better.

Pippen's evaluations are accurate, though expressed in a most undiplomatic fashion. Unfortunately, now he's burned his bridge to the Bulls.

Scottie never did, and still doesn't, exhibit any semblance of class whatsoever. Anyone who refuses to be in on a play because he isn't going to get the ball (remember THAT episode??) is NOT a team player & if I'm correct isn't basketball a team sport?

Scottie, say whatever you want, but remember most of us are intelligent enough to consider the source.
