NBA legend Michael Jordan has got the ultimate revenge on Scottie Pippen after his former Chicago Bulls teammate has been trashing him.
Jordan and Pippen won six NBA Championships with the Chicago Bulls.
However, Pippen has been trashing Jordan ever since the documentary “Last Dance” came out.
The show on ESPN and Netflix documented the last championship the team won.
In an excerpt in GQ Magazine of his memoir, “Unguarded,” Pippen said: “Each episode was the same: Michael on a pedestal, his teammates secondary, smaller, the message no different from when he referred to us back then as his ‘supporting cast.’
“They glorified Michael Jordan while not giving nearly enough praise to me and my proud teammates.
“Michael deserved a large portion of the blame.
“The producers had granted him editorial control of the final product.
“The doc couldn’t have been released otherwise.
“He was the leading man and the director.”
Jordan called Pippen his “best teammate of all time” in the documentary.
“He couldn’t have been more condescending if he tried,” Pippen said.
“Michael was determined to prove to the current generation of fans that he was larger-than-life during his day—and still larger than LeBron James, the player many consider his equal, if not superior.”
Jordan is famously ruthless and was eerily silent on the trash talk.
Now we may know why Jordan held his tongue.
Jordan’s son Marcu is dating Pippen’s ex-wife and just went public with the relationship.
Pippen is said to be furious.
According to TMZ:
Things are clearly getting quite serious between Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan — the two now have a secret handshake … one that they seal with a big smooch!!
Michael Jordan’s offspring shared a vid of the couple’s new intimate finger-locking greeting on his social media page Sunday night — showing further that he and Scottie Pippen’s ex are, in fact, an item.
In the clip, you can see Marcus and Larsa slapping hands repeatedly — before Marcus, as part of the shake, put his arm over her head and pulled her in to give her a kiss.
For what it’s worth, Marcus captioned his handshake video with the words, “Twistin’ up my fingers for my twin” — something that sure seems to indicate things are heating up.
Good for them it’s true love at last … even if Scottie ain’t exactly pleased to see it all.
