Scottie Pippen Responds to Draymond Green Saying Warriors Would Beat Bulls

Scottie Pippen is siding with MJ for once.

Scottie Pippen says the words with gusto. He isn’t interested in a debate on the topic. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green’s asserted that the 2017 Golden State team headlined by Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Green would have handily beaten the 1998 Chicago Bulls.

“Put this out there: The best team to win a championship is the ’96 Bulls,” he told NBC Sports Chicago while promoting a partnership with DICK’s Sporting Goods to give back to Chicago through a basketball camp and gear giveaway.

“Tell Draymond, I yell back,” Pippen said. 

What made that 1996 team, specifically, so great, in Pippen’s memory?

“Our record,” he said flatly.

The Bulls finished with a 72-10 regular-season record that season, then marched through the playoffs with a 15-3 record.

This is one debate that will  never end, and that’s what makes sports so amazing.
