Former Bulls center Will Perdue thinks Scottie Pippen’s claims of Phil Jackson being a racist are just a PR stunt. Pippen’s comments simply do not add up in Perdue’s mind. In case you missed it, Scottie Pippen was the very definition of viral yesterday when he doubled down and called his former coach Phil Jackson racist.

Perdue, however, who told 670 The Score he’s listened to Pippen’s claim about Jackson being a racist 30 times but he’s still scratching his head.
“He’s got the Digits bourbon, he’s got the book coming out,” Perdue said on the Bernstein & Rahimi Show on 670 The Score on Tuesday. “Is some of this being misled by another individual? Now, I don’t know the answer to that. The timing just seems a little odd, that’s all.”
“If he feels like it truly was … racially motivated, then he needs to do something more about it than just briefly answer a question from Dan Patrick or answer a question in GQ,” Perdue said. “He also, in my opinion, needs to gives specific examples. He needs to have somebody back him up. He needs to have other teammates step up and say, ‘I experienced the same thing.’ I don’t want to sit here and say, ‘No, this didn’t happen.’ Because I can’t sit here and give you a 100% certainty answer that this did not happen. I can say that I didn’t experience it, but then at the same time, I’m white and I’m answering these questions. I can only fathom what Scottie had to deal with growing up, what any other African-American had to deal with growing up, stuff that I just can’t fathom, that’s mind-boggling.
“I understand why it’s so important to talk about it now, but if that’s the case and because of our society, the way that it is, it’s not just something that you can briefly mention. It’s something that I feel like, you need to take it farther and you need to make it a cause and you need to do something about it. I’m not saying this is what he’s trying to accomplish, but it does come across as this is kind of a PR media stunt. Whether it is or not, that’s just how it comes across and that’s unfortunate.”

Perdue and Pippen were Bulls teammates from 1988 to 1995.
“I have yet to see anybody step up and agree with his statements as of yet,” Perdue said. “I could be mistaken.
“At the end of the day, we need more proof, we need more evidence, we need more specific examples so that we have something that we can back this up with. Because anybody can just say anything they want and the court of public opinion can take sides.”
It feels like Scottie definitely has an ulterior motive.
Why would someone with as much success as Scottie had start throwing stones all these years later.
