"You take Michael off that team, and Scottie moves down to fifth" - Larry Bird revealed his honest take on Scottie Pippen

Contrary to what Bird said, another Celtics legend thinks Pippen could've accomplished a lot on his own.

As a southern Indiana native,  always rooted for the Pacers. But when it became clear that the Chicago Bulls were better than Indiana in the 90s, Larry Legend gave Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen the props. 

However, when it comes right down to it, Bird blatantly said it was MJ that made Pippen a great player.

 Celtics legend wrote in his book

Pippen was great with MJ and only good without”

According to Bird, while it is true that  and Pippen as a duo were unstoppable, it’s a completely different story when you take one guy out of the picture. 

Based on Bird’s assessment, Pippen played at his best alongside Jordan, but that wasn’t vice versa because Pip, without MJ, wouldn’t have been that lethal.

As it turned out, many could say Bird was right with his analysis, as everybody knows  underachieved without Jordan. However, another  legend begged to disagree, and he has an interesting point to back it up.

Pierce praises Pippen

For Paul Pierce, Pippen was also at the pinnacle of his career when he won six NBA championships with Jordan and the Bulls. And for a talented duo to be successful, “The Truth” stressed , and that’s what Pippen did the entire time he co-piloted with MJ in .

Pierce pointed out.

Regardless of whoever you side with in this story, the fact remains that Jordan and Pippen were both legendary, be it individually or as a duo.
