Scottie Pippen is all in on calling Phil Jackson a racist. The former NBA player was openly unhappy that Phil Jackson didn’t give him the final shot in a game back in 1994, and apparently he felt the legendary coach’s decision was racially motivated. Pippen spoke about the incident during an interview with GQ, and he said you “need to read between the fine lines” to understand why he was so upset. He believes Jackson wanted to elevate Kukoc’s status.

“I been through all the ups and downs, the battles with the Pistons and now you gonna insult me and tell me to take it out? I thought it was a pretty low blow,” Pippen said. “I felt like it was an opportunity to give [Kukoc] a rise. It was a racial move to give him a rise. After all I’ve been through with this organization, now you’re gonna tell me to take the ball out and throw it to Toni Kukoc? You’re insulting me. That’s how I felt.”

Today Scottie was on the Dan  Patrick show, and didn’t want to take back his comments on Phil.  In fact, he confirmed what he said before,  and called out Phil Jackson for being a racist.
