Since ppg/rpg/apg and efficiency are the end all be all of evaluating who the better player is, LeBron is at worst the 2nd greatest perimeter player of all time

21/7 isn't better than the 90's highs of those SF's.. Bird, Hill and Dominique had better highs in the 90's.. 21/7 is an ordinary high for a good wing in the 90's, not the best

Seriously how many players in history can get you 21/7/7 with elite defense like prime Pippen? He truly was a one of a kind player

How many guys can get 21/7 with elite defense?

Tons of guys.. Alonzo's 20/10 and 3 blocks is better... And Pippen's great defense while shooting 45% ts < Kemp's solid defense while shooting 65% ts

So tons of guys can match him... 21/7 simply isn't that formidable...

Btw, when pippen is getting 16 on 40% and being outscored by 5+ points, his defense isn't making up 5+ points vs equal or better athletes - like, Kemp or Penny are amazing athletes and it's laughable that anyone thinks pippen's defensive impact is significantly better then theirs if they were in the bulls system alongside mike (enough to make up for Pip's often horrific offense) - it isn't, and that's one of the most overblown narratives there is (that equal or better athletes then Pippen wouldn't be similar defenders in the Bulls system and alongside Mike, certainly enough to make them more valuable than Pippen's often horrific offense)

I would love to see you sit down with an NBA coach and explain why you should judge Scottie Pippen by his numbers. Just for a laugh. Not that we really know how you would frame an opinion verbally because all of them are copied and pasted.

Pippen put up similar numbers as a second option as all the others in OP did as first option. Even though he had MJ taking 25 shots a game.

What OP proves is that Pippen was better than all of them. Specially when defense is considered.

Thanks for confirming.

If you want to reach a championship level with Pippen as a primary scoring option, you need extra star help (scoring help) to offset his weaker scoring.. this might cost an extra 5-10 million a year to pay someone that can score an extra 6-7 ppg, so your backcourt elevates from BJ Armstrong/Pete Myers (2nd round level), to Terrell Brandon/Pete Myers (championship level)..

Or......... you can just put MJ in Myers' spot... and then you won't need any scoring at the PG spot, so you can replace Brandon's big salary with old Ron Harper at the vet minimum.

Ultimately, only MJ's scoring is enough to win with Pippen as the #2 option and pure role players after that.. Lesser scorers need 2nd and 3rd stars to win with Pippen's level of scoring - only MJ won multiple rings with one star and pure role players

And I know the popular thinking about MJ is that he didn't actually make guys better, and perhaps another guy in his place would've somehow gotten more out of other guys and therefore not needed MJ's scoring level - except pippen, grant, and bj all grew from rookies to all-star level from 1989 to 1993 - no one could grow them faster or better than this and they still needed 36/7/8 on 53% from MJ in the 91-93' Finals... keep in mind that MJ's 41 in 93' was accomplished when the bulls and suns both averaged 106.7 ppg and 113.0 ortg (so all of mj's 41 was needed).

All NBA 1st team. All D first team. 3rd MVP voting. 55 wins. Roll of the dice with conference champs in the PO.

^^^
As first option with roll players.

Pippen was amazing. Without a doubt a top 5 perimeter player in the 90s.

Give it up.

Pip only has one top 3 MVP to his name, so he wasn't an MVP-caliber player.. it was just a one-off, which tons of guys have

i.e. Drexler almost beat MJ for MVP in 1992 - a lot of people thought he was getting it... So that one additional ranking and memorable runner-up that represents an entirely higher level of play that pippen could never reach... The same level that allowed Drexler to lead his team to the Finals twice and average 26 ppg against the Bad Boys' and MJ's defense..

Pippen is nowhere near this level and shouldn't rank above Drexler on any chart.. similarly, he shouldn't rank above Ewing, Stockton, and maybe even KJ - their accomplishments show that they were superior players.. and I'm not including someone like Dominique or bernard king, even though their stats destroy pippen's - you could argue that they didn't play "optimally" or with great teamwork

It was one of those weird series where the loser overachieved big-time, like the 19' clippers vs the warriors

Nobody will match his accolades because of the rings and how that boosted everything else

But many guys were better including MJ, Drexler, Hill, Penny, Payton

^^^ There's 5

98' and 99' Kobe was also better
