ESPN’s “The Last Dance” docuseries revealed a lot of truths about Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and the Chicago Bulls.

In the docuseries, Jordan called Pippen “selfish” for delaying surgery to purposely miss the beginning of the 1997-98 season.

Later, Jordan claimed that Pippen quit on the Bulls during the 1994 playoffs while Jordan was away from the team playing baseball.

Despite rumors of potential bad blood between Jordan and Pippen, Pippen said the two have no issues.

“My relationship with Michael is great, great as ever, there is nothing changed,” Pippen said on Da Windy City podcast. “This documentary has not changed our relationship. We will be friends forever.”

It’s good to know that these two legends don’t have any beef.

Jordan and Pippen formed perhaps the most iconic duo in NBA history. They won six championships together with the Bulls and also captured an Olympic gold medal together in 1992.

Both Jordan and Pippen are now enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
