Scottie Pippen: Underrated/Overrated?
 
Or do you feel he is rated where he should be? I have seen a lot of posters say he doesn't get his due for the Bulls' success. Even one (retard) going as far as saying he was better than Magic/Bird. And some hardcore Jordan worshipers say that Jordan made him the player he was. Which side you you lean on?

Highly overrated

He's either overrated or underrated depending on who's making the argument. Kobe stans will overrate him like he's a top 10 GOAT player in order to diminish Jordan. Jordan stans will underrate him to make it seem like Jordan won 6 titles by himself.

Realistically, he's a top 30 player, top 10 GOAT SF, top 10 90's player and an extremely important piece of the Bulls dynasty.

That depends on exactly where that is. Definitely top 50 all-time, imo, and in the conversation as the best perimeter defender ever.

High bb IQ, great intangibles, willing to do the dirty work, didn't need the ball to be effective...

His two downfall areas were his deficiencies on offense, and that he's a beta, rather than an alpha.

Is that exactly what I said? Or are you lying? It seems as if some of you morons get a rise out of exaggerating the truth. Then when confronted, run like a little scared bitch.

He was a franchise player that never got the chance to see how far he could go leading a talented team. Some people will try to say he failed as a leader cuz he didnt win in 00. But he was 34/35 years old.

The fact is he gets held to a standard a lot of players dont have to meet.

I dont see anything funny about that. Wade is clearly better player than Scottie.

Underrated by casual fans, overrated by Jordan bashers and rated correctly by NBA experts and Bulls fans.

Wades clearly a better scorer than Pippen. Thats as far as it goes. Defense, rebounding, teamwork, running an offense, passing, basically every other facet of basketball Pippen is better.

I've heard "NBA experts" saying "some people don't remember, but Pippen was the 2nd best player in the league for a few years when they were playing together". They referring to Jordan. Which is false.

Hes overrated. Particularly by NBA experts. Some of them talk as if he was a better player than Ewing, Clyde, Isiah, Barkley, etc.
Pippen was a great player, no doubt, but people remember him as far better than what he actually was due to his achievements in a team. Certain posters act as if he'd be a guaranteed lock for top 5 player in the league right now for most of his career, when in reality he'd be a fringe top 10-15 guy, like he was back in his day.

Wades a better shooter, free throw shooter, passer, blocker, post player, playmaker, slasher, more clutch, consistent and more efficient.

Its not particularly close. Wades better. Melo is better. Durant is better.
