“You all know the resume, but let’s run through it a little bit because it’s pretty gaudy, kind of fun to say these things,” Greeinstein said. “Six-time NBA champion, seven-time All-Star, eight-time All-NBA first team defense… Named one of the greatest 50 NBA players of all-time, had his No. 33 jersey retired by the Chicago Bulls.
“And you’re an ambassador for the Bulls, is that right?”
“I was,” Pippen responded. “I got fired this year. I didn’t really want it to be in the public, but I’m no longer employed by the Bulls.”
“It’s probably a good thing, right?” Pippen said to Greenstein. “I like to associate myself with winning.”
Pippen then addressed comments he made on “The Jump” during All-Star weekend, when he said the “Bulls’ starting lineup aren’t true starters in this league.”
“I did say that. I do feel like the talent level — maybe Zach LaVine, but — I feel the talent level that the Bulls have right now is below what it needs to be in the NBA,” Pippen said to Greenstein. “I do feel they have some young players that are up and coming. So I’m not really knocking those players. But I think they gotta get more talent, some free agents, if they’re going to be able to try to compete night, period, night in and night out.”
Scottie will be just fine.
Maybe one day the Bulls can get their sh*t together, and hire this man back.
