Following the release of ESPN’s acclaimed Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, sources alluded to a rift between Scottie Pippen and his former teammate Michael Jordan.
However, in a new interview with the Associated Press, Pippen claims he has no beef with the retired Chicago Bulls star.
“Why would I be offended by anything that happened 30 years ago?” Pippen said in a piece published Tuesday. “It didn’t bother me at all.
In fact, the athlete said that he’s glad that fans were able to learn more about the Bulls’ legacy: “It was an opportunity for our younger generation that hadn’t seen or knew anything about basketball in the ’90s,” he said.
Pippen reportedly “beyond livid” over the way he was treated in the documentary, according to ESPN 1000’s David Kaplan.
“He is so angry at Michael and how he was portrayed, called selfish, called this, called that, that he’s furious that he participated and did not realize what he was getting himself into,” Kaplan said.
Jordan and Pippen won Six Championships together, hard to be upset at anyone when you’re both legendary.
And we’re still talking about them thirty years later.
