Jalen Rose on Scottie Pippen: ‘He is the most disrespected all-time great player in any sport that any game has seen’

Jalen Rose and Scottie Pippen

Former NBA star Jalen Rose recently spoke about Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen and made a bold claim.

According to Rose, Pippen is the “most disrespected all-time great player” in sports history.

“I always admired Scottie Pippen and his game and appreciated him,” Rose said. “And then I thought about something. He’s the most disrespected all-time great player in any sport that any game has seen. It’s not even close. Michael Jordan didn’t win any championships without Scottie Pippen. But let me tell you why the public gets to denounce the role of Scottie Pippen, two reasons. One, we always want to give the best player all of the credit. … Two, unfortunately for Scottie, when you look back at those championship runs, and this is the dubious thing I wanted to show you, he doesn’t have the signature moment.”

Pippen finished his NBA career with some incredible accomplishments. Among them, he made seven All-Star teams and won six NBA titles.

The Hall of Famer finished his playing days with averages of 16.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game. He shot 47.3 percent from the field and 32.6 percent from deep.

Despite his accomplishments, he spent most of his prime years in Jordan’s shadow. In the eyes of many, that’s still the case today.

Additionally, when Jordan released his documentary series “The Last Dance,” Pippen made it clear that he wasn’t happy with the way he was portrayed.

Still, at the end of the day, no one can take away Pippen’s six rings. He was a key part of all of those championships.
