Pippen:

87-88: -1.0
88-89: -0.9
89-90: +0.3
90-91: -1.0
91-92: -1.5
92-93: -0.7
93-94: -1.0
94-95: -1.4
95-96: -1.9
97-97: -1.2
97-98: -1.4
98-99: +0.2
99-00: -1.0
00-01: -0.4
01-02: -0.2
02-03: -0.4
03-04: +0.6

Ewing:

85-86: -0.7
86-87: +1.1
87-88: -0.6
88-89: -0.1
89-90: -0.0
90-91: -0.2
91-92: -1.6
92-93: -2.9
93-94: -2.3
94-95: -1.6
95-96: -1.3
96-97: -1.5
97-98: -1.3
98-99: -1.2
99-00: -1.0
00-01: +0.9
01-02: +0.3

offhand I figured the difference was a lot closer, and planned to give it to Pip on the basis of versatility, but I think I need to switch them on my list. The only question is whether I need to bump Pippen down a tier (joining Rodman), or whether he can remain there.
