You might not need scoring but a guy who can nail a three pointer or rotate the ball perfectly is a hell of an asset with Dream or Duncan drawing double teams.
As I've said, on my squad I prefer Pippen's defensive versatility. We can debate all day about what Pippen does versus what Bird does. You're continuing to bring up the offensive reasons to have Bird over Pippen when I've already stated I pick Pippen for defensive reasons. If I wanted more offense, there's a number of small forwards I would choose over Pippen. It's not like he was a scrub scorer, he could go off for 30 too but I like his all-around game, and that's why I would pick him over Bird. Which is not to say I think Pippen was better, I just want what he does for the team I picked, especially with Jordan as his running mate.

Pippen looks like those statues on Easter Island, therefore there is no slot for him on my team, ever.
