BS, Scottie Pippen was a better player than Jordan in every phase except scoring. He has always been underrated by people who wanted Jordan's star to shine as bright as possible. If Pippen is considered great, that would mean Jordan isn't as great.

That has been going on for years. It's like partisan politics, the Republican mentality (Jordan fans) have always been happy to denigrate everything else about the Bulls. Scott Pippen fans (like Democrats) are sophisticated and selfless like Scottie was.

Scottie was easily top 50 btw.

Not sure I would go *quite* that far, but regardless Pippen's contribution to those Bulls teams is almost criminally underrated. Jordan and Pippen are my two favorite all-time players, and while Jordan obviously has reached God-like status, it really 'annoys' me how little people think of Scottie Pippen. Remember when the Cavs fans were chanting 'Scottie Pippen' to Lebron this year? People don't realize that's actually a compliment.

Whoa! Yes I agree I was shaking my head when I heard the chants. Maybe "Queen" would have been more fitting? I thought the "Akron hates you" chant was a little overboard.

I thought Jordan's supporting cast as a whole was also very underrated- they had some significant role players that stepped up throughout the years during crucial times.

Anyone who appreciates the nuances of Basketball, knows the kind of value Scottie Pippen brought to the table.

In fairness, while most everyone thought the 'Lebron is possibly the greatest player ever' talk was asinine, the truth is Lebron by the time he got to the finals was smelling like a rose. Then he collapsed in the finals.... you have to wonder if that hype got to him. It's not as though Dallas used any befuddling defensive schemes...hell Chicago's defense alone should have prepped him for just about anything he would face after that.

No, that Rockets team was actually the weakest of all the teams the blls faced from 91 to 93 nd would have loss 4-1 or got swept

Which Rockets team are you putting against the Bulls team? The 1994 or 1995 team?

And which Bulls roster are you putting against the Rockets? Paxson, Pippen, Cartwright, Grant and Jordan?
