SAN FRANCISCO – Former NBA Chicago Bull’s Star Hall Of Famer Scottie Pippen had the audacity to say that Miami Heat LeBron James “may be the greatest player to ever play the game” on ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning. Once the fans blasted Pippen for making a ridiculous statement he then took it back and tried to clean it up. This is what I was talking about on one of my past blogs called ” Two-Faced Celebrities” and now I can add Pippen to the list.
I am not a Michael Jordan fan, however, Pippen should have never disrespected Jordan. Jordan has rings, If James won today it will still take him 6 years to catch Jordan. Pippen said LeBron James “may be the greatest player to ever play the game.” I wonder if Pippen ever heard the name Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Walt Frasier, and I guess Pippen never heard the name Bill Russell and more. Pippen does not have to like Jordan, however, he must not disrespect him either. If he said something he should not have back track to clean it up, Pippen must have meant it or he would not have said it.
James will play the Dallas Mavs 5 /31 /11 Tuesday night in Game 1 for the chance at the NBA Championship.
