Scottie Pippen was not a fan of Michael Jordan's "The Last Dance" and he plans to release a book to tell his side of the story

Scottie Pippen on Michael Jordan in The Last Dance: “He Couldn’t Have Been More Condescending If He Tried”

Scottie Pippen is apparently still pretty butt hurt over his portrayal in the docuseries “The Last Dance” Here’s an excerpt from Scottie Pippen’s upcoming memoir, Unguarded.

Via GQ:

 “Each episode was the same: Michael on a pedestal, his teammates secondary, smaller, the message no different from when he referred to us back then as his “supporting cast.” From one season to the next, we received little or no credit whenever we won but the bulk of the criticism when we lost. Michael could shoot 6 for 24 from the field, commit 5 turnovers, and he was still, in the minds of the adoring press and public, the Errorless Jordan.

Now here I was, in my midfifties, seventeen years since my final game, watching us being demeaned once again. Living through it the first time was insulting enough.”

Pip spoke about Jordan being condescending:

“Even in the second episode, which focused for a while on my difficult upbringing and unlikely path to the NBA, the narrative returned to MJ and his determination to win. I was nothing more than a prop. His “best teammate of all time,” he called me. He couldn’t have been more condescending if he tried. “

Sounds to me like Scottie is still incredibly jealous of Michael Jordan.

What Scottie doesn’t realize is, everyone witnessed the dynasty.  Jordan’s “The Last Dance” rang pretty true to what people experienced while watching the Six Championships.

Scottie is an All Timer, but obviously not smart enough to realize he was the second banana.

And nothing’s wrong with that. I’ll be the Robin to  Michael Jordan’s Batman any day of  the week.

Maybe this will help Scottie sell a few books?
