    I mean dude could literally score on an elite level, play defense on an elite level, threat from 3, good free throw shooter, good rebounder, great passer, high basketball IQ. What am I missing? Was there any weaknesses there?

    Pippen was a good all around player who gets highly overrated.He could not score at an elite level either,was a below average ft & jump shooter and froze up in crunch time

    Kobe,Jordan,Curry,Durant can score at elite levels not scottie pippen

    Yup. Pippen was a subpar shooter. Kawhi Leonard is already better offensively.

    People like to mythologize him a lot though. I remember people on sohh saying he was better than Karl Malone, KG, and Dirk.

    What about those quotes was untrue?

    Scottie Pippen was never that good of a shooter. He had a decent mid-range J. He used to use the glass a lot. But he's a career 70% free throw and 32.6% 3 point shooter.

    Breh I ain't gonna sit here and shyt on Khawi cuz he's my favorite player or ask if you even seen Scottie play live. Idk why we gotta shyt on legends to big up the new rising stars around here. Scottie Pippen is the goat Robin to the goat Batman. When he got his chance to step up and lead the team he had a dominant near MVP year carrying a depleted Bulls team.

    He could do everything on that court at a high level the fact that it was just said that he couldn't score at a high level is crazy to me.

    Khawi is a savage and has next we know this but we don't need 20 pages of acting like Scottie Pippen isn't the defnition of point forward and a lockdown defender.

    No doubt and offensively I think leonard and pippen are even but defensively leonard is better imo I've seen him guard 1-3's and give some of the best players in this league problems he guarded jj redikk off the ball and straight smothered him


    :pachaha: this is what I'm talking about the bulls were defending 3 time champs who added steve kerr and toni kukoc with 2 all stars along with pippen in bj armstrong and horace grant.Depleted bulls team :mjlol:people revise history on here

    The next year the bulls were 34-31 and a 6-7 seed until jordan returned with pippen leading them in all categories

    All I said is Kawhi Leonard is better offensively...meaning as a scorer. He is. Kawhi Leonard is a better shooter and it's not even close and he already has a more complete and effective scoring arsenal than Pippen ever had. Pippen is a better passer for sure and probably a better rebounder too. Pippen might be the GOAT perimeter defender. I think Kawhi may be a little more versatile because he can guard 4's, but he would have to keep doing it at an elite level for years before him being a better defender than Pippen becomes a conversation.

    MJ retired cut the shyt breh too early to be acting corny. You take the goat off a team that won 3 straight in a time where all the teams are gunning for their necks of course they are depleted. :camby:

    Pippen wasn't a great shooter, but he can hit an open jumper sometimes. He can't be a 1st scoring option on regular basis. When Mike retired the first time, Pippen stats remained almost the same.

    with that being said, Pippen is still better than Kawhi

    To build on this I think he was a decent shooter but his free throws could have been alot better.
