Imagine if I told you after their last championship that Rodman would have a great perspective over what happened and Pippen would be spitting rambling nonsense?

This will sound weird, but I don't think Jordan was good for Scottie. Sure they had on court success, but Pip needed a best friend, not a business partner. If anything this is my largest criticism of MJ as a leader. He was all business. I think he'd have a lot of trouble working with today's players. Just imagine him trying to get on the same page with Kyrie Irving let alone win anything with him on the court.

Yeah... honestly, some of the traits that people hate about MJ are probably the same traits that made him so great to begin with.

Call me strange but right or wrong, I've always enjoyed Charles Barkley's take on all things NBA. Once again, he doesn't disappoint.

Lol. If that's the case, I am with mj on this. They are supposed to win games. Not be be friends. What a pussy.

MJ did not win anything until Scotty came around.

Scotty won nothing with out MJ.

Neither won anything after the split.

Those 6 years was a team effort in a team sport. MJ needed Scotty and Scotty needed MJ. They needed Rodman. They needed a lot.

If you want to talk about individual then MJ is the best player. Scotty was a better team player. You needed both to win 6 rings as was proven.

So sure sour grapes. Scotty is not wrong but come on now. You don't see ex Lakers bitch slapping Magic. Let it lie.

Well, Bill Cartwright wasn't exactly treated well by Jordan. Harper can't put together a coherent thought, but was featured in the 30 for 30. Craig Hodges is fairly insane, and Grant has already threatened to fight Jordan.

I can't even be mad at Scottie. It just makes me sad. I think all his personal losses have really affected him. I just feel sorry for him.
