Pippen launched an immediate attack on Jordan, whom he calls a hypocrite, in the Prologue, and the first thing that really jumped out at me was his saying he was “a much better teammate than Michael ever was.” “In the doc, Michael attempted to justify the occasions in which he berated a teammate in front of the group. He felt these guys needed to develop the toughest to get past the the NBA’s more physical teams. Seeing again how poorly Michael treated his teammates, I cringed, as I did back then. “Michael was wrong. We didn’t win six championships because he got on guys. We won in spite of his getting on guys. We won because we played team basketball, which hadn’t been the case my first two seasons, when Doug Collins was our coach. That’s what was special about playing for the Bulls: the camaraderie we established with one another, not that we felt blessed to be on the same team with the immortal Michael Jordan.

More on this storyline

“I was a much better teammate that Michael ever was. Ask anyone who played with the two of us. I was always there with a pat on the back or an encouraging word, especially after he put someone down for one reason or another. I helped the others to believe in and stop doubting themselves.” -via CBSSports.com / November 14, 2021

Pippen revealed many things in his book — from feeling like “nothing more than a prop,” to criticizing Jordan for being the only Chicago Bulls player to make money off “The Last Dance” documentary. During an interview with Michael Strahan of Good Morning America, the 6-time NBA champion expanded on it while revealing the truth about his friendship with MJ. “It wasn’t what you saw on the court. We always will have that respect for each other, but our friendship is not where people see it on TV,” Pippen revealed on GMA. -via basketballnews.com / November 11, 2021
