NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen seems to have something against Los Angeles Laker LeBron James.

As a guest on “The Jump” on Feb. 1, the NBA Hall of Famer was quick to say that Duke University freshman Zion Williamson would be the biggest draft prospect since his former teammate Michael Jordan, not even mentioning LeBron. 

Two weeks later, looks like Pippen is doubling down on his criticism of James.

A frequent guest of ESPN’s “First Take,” the former Chicago Bull couldn’t help but throw shade at LeBron again, this time making it clear whom he is siding with in the MJ vs. LeBron GOAT debate.

“When I look at LeBron James, he’s not what Michael [Jordan] was as a player. He’s not even what Kobe Bryant was as a player,” Pippen told the hosts.

“When you talk about trying to compare Michael’s instinct, his ability to take over games, his ability to want to have that last shot. LeBron doesn’t have that gene.”

Pippen won six championships in Chicago as Jordan’s sidekick.

So he may just be a bit bias, but I think Pip knows what he’s talking about.
