Scottie Pippen holds nothing back once again, this time firing a major shot at his former head coach Phil Jackson.
Last week, Pippen spoke with GQ Magazine, and Monday morning, the former Chicago Bulls star appeared on The Dan Patrick Show. During his appearance, Pippen discussed his time playing for Jackson and accused his former head coach of being a racist.
Pippen’s comments came in response to a question about the 1994 playoff game against the New York Knicks, during which Jackson drew up a play for Toni Kukoc. Pippen refused to enter the game as a result, though Kukoc hit the game-winning shot, the Spun reports.
“By saying it was a racial move, then you’re calling Phil Jackson a racist…” Patrick said.
“I don’t have a problem with that,” Pippen responded. “Do you think Phil was?” Patrick asked. “Oh yeah,” Pippen said.
Pippen brought up some other examples from Jackson’s time with the Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant, which can be seen in the clip.
Jackson, 75, was the Bulls’ head coach from 1989-98 and went on to be the Lakers’ head coach from 1999-2004 and 2005-11.
Pippen played 17 NBA seasons, winning six championships with the Chicago Bulls.

Sure, destroy a coaching legend’s reputation because, well, everything’s racism. But honestly, I blame Dan Patrick for raising the question in the first place. These ESPN wokesters are insufferable.
I had to check to make sure I wasn’t on The Babylon Bee and this was a parody of insane wokeness after I read this
Haha, the negroes are so childlike! Always the victim.
Now the Zen master is racist ???
Is it just a thing where most black folks walking around America still think it’s 1951 Selma Alabama ?
It’s cartoon land
Well considering that every white person is racist according to crt Jackson falls under that umbrella being that he’s white.
I notice he’s scoring the Kapaernick look too. Pippin sounds like the racist ..didn’t think whitey should get the shot.
I’ve always thought Scottie looked like “ALICE THE GOON” from Popeye cartoon. If not for Jordan, no one would remember Pippen.
If anything in life goes the way you don’t want it to, just claim racism…and the media will go along with it, Pippen needs to find something useful to do with his time.
Gratitude is a wonderful thing. Right, Scottie?
Easy hanging fruit. All because he didn’t get the last shot. This is why he’ll never be looked at as one of the best.
I have always held Scotty Pippen in high regard. It is a shame the current social climate encourages him to be bitter, and hateful. It must be a miserable life being a victim of being overpaid, over glorified and under appreciated. I feel real bad for Scotty. No real significant episode here. I would recommend Scotty get a new barber. Just sayin’
Scottie had 2 Jordan-less seasons to win a title “on his own” and “be the man”…how’d that work out for him?
So when Phil drew up thousands of plays for Jordan and then later on for Kobe, he’s not a racist. But he doesn’t draw up a play for the Migraine Baby and then suddenly he is. Scottie, I feel bad for you. Sounds like last summer’s Last Dance has really messed with you
Just another black multi millionaire celebrity status yet still not good enough also very fortunate to play on team with the great one MJ in his prime nobody should give these ignorant kool aid drinking fools the time a day I must say just go fuck yourself clown.
Scottie Pippen is a mental midget. Why would anyone seek out his opinion on any subject?
Mr migraine cost the bulls one championship. He couldn’t be the man so MJ, the man – GOAT, came back. Pippen went to a loaded Portland (maybe it was Seattle, I’m getting old) and couldn’t win.
He’s pissed that Jordan made it public that he quit on his team. Know it racists.
It appears Pippen has been hanging out with Colin Kaepernick…so much so that he’s even starting to look like him. And apparently, he’s just as dumb.
Scottie been drinking that lefty Kool-aid.
The zen master was a camera loving hippie multimillionaire who had his favorites who had his reasons for giving the final shot to TK, but it ultimately worked.
Not gonna lie… I’m fine sitting on the sideline and watching these woketards cannibalize each other.
It’s shocking to hear Pippen blast Phil Jackson like this.
