Why would Toni, who’s a rookie, get the last-second shot and you put me out of bounds? That’s what I mean racial. 처럼, that was Scottie Pippen’s team. Scottie Pippen was on pace to be a MVP that year, 권리? Why would you put him in a position not to be successful? Why wouldn’t you put him into a position to succeed?

Patrick told Pippen he was essentially calling the legendary coach a racist. To which Pippen replied, “I don’t got a problem with that.

When asked whether he thought Jackson was or is a racist, Pippen didn’t exactly paint a clear picture.

Oh yeah, I mean do you remember Phil Jackson left the Lakers, went and wrote a book on Kobe Bryant and then came back and coached him? I mean who would do that? You name someone in professional sports that would do that. I think he probably exposed Kobe in a way that he shouldn’t have. You’re the head coach and you’re the guy that sits in the locker room and tells players this is a circle and everything stays within the circle because that’s what team is about but you as the head coach open it up and now you go out and try to belittle, at that time probably one of the greatest players in the game,” Pippen said.

Patrick said it didn’t sound what Jackson did when he was coaching the Los Angeles Lakers a racist move, rather more disloyal. Pippen shot back.

“잘, that’s your way of putting it out and I have my way. I was in the locker room with him. I was in practices with him. You’re looking from afar,” 그는 말했다.

Pippen has raised eyebrows with his remarks from the GQ article. He rehashed his feud with Charles Barkley and started a new one with Kevin Durant.
