Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen’s relationship is finished.
One of the sports world’s greatest duos of all time are no longer friends, following a series of disparaging comments Scottie made about Michael Jordan.
According to Knicks legend Charles Oakley, who is tight with Michael Jordan, Scottie and Michael are no longer on speaking terms.
“No, I think it’s over,” Oakley said about Jordan and Pippen’s relationship during a recent appearance on “The Bill Simmons Podcast.” “It wasn’t great from the get-go.”

It’s a bummer that the greatest duo in @NBA history aren’t close anymore. They’re both so sensitive when it comes to any criticism levied toward them.

Do MJ and Chuck talk again yet? If not, I’d bet against a reunion with Pippen.

MJ still a killer after retirement.

Sad really but I'm not sure how Scottie can watch everyone wearing Jordans and feel cool chatting with Michael. No way he doesn't think "that should be me" deep down. https://t.co/WYdbPJPM7l

Scottie Pippen showed his true colors following the airing of the Bulls documentary The Last Dance.
Clearly he didn’t like how he was portrayed, and blamed it squarely on Michael. Plus Scottie was trying to cash in on a book deal, and figured the best way to sell more books was to sling more mud.
It’s a shame there’s no friendship there at all anymore.
A damn shame.
