Scottie Pippen is a Hall of Fame player. He played with the player many believe is the greatest of all-time, Michael Jordan. As a member of the Chicago Bulls, Pippen witnessed five NBA MVP awards go to Jordan.
How much weight?
Pippen appeared to intimate that none of Jordan’s individual seasons — including those in which he won MVP — were as good as the one Westbrook has put forth for the Oklahoma City Thunder. A season that just might see Westbrook break Oscar Robertson’s single-season record for triple-doubles, by the way.
Speaking on ESPN with Tracy McGrady, Pippen said it was the greatest performance he’s ever seen.
Is that high praise, or dark shade?
Makes you think.
