And to say that in "basketball HOF" everybody gets in that easily, come on now if it was that easy then Michael Cooper should be in then Byron Scott should be in then Vinnie Johnson should get in please my goodness.

Skip Bayless is pure dumbass. I hate that guy. Stephen A Smith is whatever he can be dumb, but some times he gives good insight. Bayless is just arrogant thinks what he has to say is of utter importance and rolls his eyes at those he disagrees with.

If ESPN fires Skip Bayless NO-ONE and I mean NO-ONE will watch First Take anymore and that is 4 hours worth of programming block.

Thats the media for you, yes Scottie Pippen thing was arguable, ok but this is what im gonna say for one time can we all say without the Media that the NBA championship is a TEAM award. Thats the problem with the media when we talk about the Bulls its always about MJ and I totally understand but no one ever says how great of a TEAM they were.
How guys like Toni Kukoc was important to that team, Kerr, Carwright, Grant, Luc, Jud, Craig. Those two 3peat championship were a very awesome TEAM

Nada, zip, and zilch, with the same cast of characters that you list. So face it. Scottie Pippen wasn't that great without his batman.

for an 18 year career to avg these numbers i think he should get in. not to mention the 6 rings and multiple all-star games

if you look it up bigblue scotties stat line didnt change after jordan retired. was scottie a superstar that could take a team to the finals alone? no but he was a 20 8 5 guy for nearly 15years of his 18. hes def a HoF

i guess cynthia cooper and vivian stringer belong in the HOF and not scottie hahahahahahaha wtf kinda world is this

When Jordan sat out for gambling too much, Pippen carried that team to the conference semis where the Bulls were screwed. He was the all star MVP that year and playing the best basketball of his life. He is a no brainer all star and Skip Bayless is just the Ann Coulter of sports. He is a polemic, meaning he says ridiculous things to get attention and keep his job. He was a hack when he wrote for the trib. His most endearing quality is being brothers to Rick Bayless who is a phenominal chef.

i love skip but he's an old school guy and them dudes are stuck on Jordan's sack.

I totally agree.

I consider myself old school, too, but guys like Skip act like Jordan walked on water. They completely ignore all of his flaws; in fact, let them tell it, he had none.

And they are complete hypocrites when it comes to assessing Jordan's virtues. If MJ goes out and punches a teammate, well, he was just being fiercely competitive. But if Kobe bad mouths Bynum, well, he's being a poor leader and a world class butthole to boot. If Jordan goes out and throws up 30 shots, well, that's fine for team chemistry. But let Wade or someone else do that and Skip will start ranting about how he's a ball hog who is out for self only.

Jordan never made ANY of his teammates better, they developed on their own and stepped up to his level. That's not including guys like Harper, Kukoc or Rodman, who were already skilled players before they met Jordan. But guys like Skip always look to today's superstars and criticize them for not making their teammates better. Bunch of crock. The same standards should apply across the board.

And don't even get me started on Jordan having bad games, because those are conveniently swept under the rug. Even in the playoffs Jordan had some poor shooting performances. But you won't hear about them. Not from Skip. Listen to Skip wax philosophical about Jordan and you'll start to believe that Jordan averaged 99% from the floor his entire career, pulled down 50 rebounds, blocked 40 shots, and pilfered another 30 a night.

It's a shame really, because when he's right, Skip is right. But more often than not, he's more like Steven A Smith with a slightly higher IQ.

Does Pippen belong in the HOF? A pointless argument. He'd get in anyway, ironically, because of guys like Skip and their "Jordan was Jehovah" man crushes.

Obviously the Bull teams were great teams. No single player can win 72 games in a season-or 6 championships, without a lot of good support. That being said, Pippen was a very good player-definitely NOT a top 50 player, and a borderline HOF player.He was certainly a great defender and a very good sidekick. When he finally had his moment to be top banana he failed pretty badly. I wish him the best, I heard he is broke. Just please don't start saying pax, or kerr, or cartwright or grant or any of those guys deserve to be in. They do not. Not by a country mile. The only other Bull player who probably should be in is the Worm. And that is, at least in part, due to big success in Motown before becoming a Bull.

...and that is exactly why many true B-Ball fans are getting burned out on it. I love B-Ball, but they lost the team aspect, and it is all about the one player. Football and Basketball more then any other sport needs to work as a machine. In baseball one player can make a HUGE difference, in the others you need a team around you, ask Wade, Bron and Bosh how the being the man thing worked out or KG, Allen, Rondo and Pierce or Kobe, Pau, Odom, et all.

I think it actually started with AI, Vince, Kobe and all the Isolation plays that were run back in the day, then the league changed the rules and it promoted singular players. Bring back the Hand Check and the elbows :), and make it a team sport again.

As for Stephen A. Smith he was not fired, ESPN and him could not agree on a contract so they went their seperate ways.

Such a weak argument. Who was Scottie's "Robin"? It wasn't the same cast of characters...because Scottie Pippen didn't have a Scottie Pippen.

Are you saying Jordan would have won the championship that year if you straight up replaced Scottie with Jordan? It's possible but very arguable. And even if Jordan could...nobody is saying Scottie = Jordan. He did very well with the team he had.

Jesus people are gullible, do you guys actully believe that everything that comes out of skips mouth is the way he actully feels? The guy is one of the most talked about sportswriters in America because of saying things like this. He comes up with radical claims because it boosts ratings because people will tune in to see what ridiculous new theory skip has. If he sounded like every other sports writer then he would have never made it on TV and would still be writeing for internet websites and newspapers. Its hilarious to watch people get so mad at skip. He knows how to get under peoples skin and that has helped launch his career to one of the most recognizeable names/faces in sports reporting.

Skip is the biggest reason why I watch ESPN. He gives great points. I don't agree with him everytime, but he has a point with Scottie. The HOF is for the best of the best. Scottie played number 2 his entire career. He didn't have the chance to show himself as the star of a team in his prime. Skip is great, you guys are whacked. He knows what he is talking about.

I think MJ might get a bit too much credit for that one. I do think he helped Scottie maximize his potential, but the bottom line is that the potential was already there. Pippen was an amazing college player (dude was putting up 24pts 10ast 4reb 3+ steals in his final year at Arkansas) and went fifth in the draft over guys like Mark Jackson/Reggie Miller/Kevin Johnson. He was supposed to be great, and he was. Whether he was helped by MJ or not is irrelevant.

Beyond that, he put up 22pts 9reb 6ast w/ 3stls (a lot like his college numbers...) the year that MJ left. So what is Skip talking about, exactly? Dude's a clown.

There's 287 players in the Hall. Do you really think Scottie isn't a part of that? The guy was a top 3 wing defender of all time, and absolute force on offense as well. Without Scottie, the Bulls don't have these rings, period. He is the best of the best - the guy is unarguably a top ten SF of all time. No brainer for the hall. I will reiterate, Skip Bayless is a clown.

Pippen was a better defender than jordan, look back at the year jordan was having a hard time guarding magic, once they put pippen on him, magic was the one having a hard time. I go back, and am a nba junky. And u trully believe pippen isn't top 50, or hall of famer, u really need top stop watching the game.

I still stick by the fact that skip comes up with a lot of these claims to get a rise out of people, thus why he is one of the most talked about sportswriters in america, however if robert parish and james worthy are in the HOF (both players were 3rd options on teams that did not win as many titles as scottie) then how in the hell does scottie pippen not get in? Essentially what your saying is that anyone who wasnt a number one option shouldnt be in the HOF? if thats not what your saying then correct me but it sure seems that way.

Skip is on ESPN solely to cause conflict & get people to post threads like this.
That is his only job.
He has no credibility with me, because he always takes the negative/contrarian position to perform in his role of stirring things up.
Doesnt really have any original thought, just plays the Simon Cowell role for sports.
That would be in contrast to real contributors who are free speaking like Barkley.

Alot of the stuff is true. It is rather easy to get into the HoF and even Michael Jordan complained about it last year when he was inducted. And players should be inducted later as well. Jordan played 8 seasons ago.

Scottie Pippen is NOT a Top 50 All-time greatest! Especially since guys like Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, etc are soon to join the ranks.

All you have to do is watch scottie play in a full game not youtube highlights and you can tell he is easily one of the 50 greatest. The guy did everything good and was a physical presence,long and extremely athletic and you can argue that he was as good if not better than Michael defensively. When the Bulls won their first championship Scottie Pippen picking up Magic full court for the entire series really wore Magic out and was the key strategy that helped get the Bulls their first chip.

Scottie would have led the Bulls to another championship in 1994 if it weren't for some stupid phantom call against the Knicks.

I'm not going to lie it was a phantom call.

I like both of them.

They speak their mind and cause conflict. :)

That may be true, but at least Stephen A. Smith speaks the truth sometimes or something reasonable. Skip is just a pure, straight forward, up front, dumbass.
