How would Bird shake off Pippen without any screens?

Pippen easily, Bird would be taking contested shots and you gonna tell me Bird will stay in front of Pip as he drives to the hole?

Some of you guys don't know a damn thing about 1v1 ball.

Exactly. I don't know what runs through some of these peoples head. They're acting as if pippen would just allow bird to shoot wide open threes.

I also don't see how you can say bird was stronger than pippen. Pippen was actuall a little bit bigger he was listed at 6'8 228lbs, bird was listed at 6'9 220. Pippen also had those insanely long arms too



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hp0NMFf9Dkg.....Larry Bird 33 points and making a mockery of 7'0 Brad Sellers and Scottie Pippen. Notice they even would put Sellers on Bird instead of Pippen when they were on the court at the same time, cuz of Seller's length...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAOx36A48wU...about 5 minutes into the video...

As you can see, Bird has no problems shooting over Pippen....

NO young lad, i do play ball...and yes, you NEVER saw Bird play Pippen in their careers...Bird past his prime would torch a young athletic Pippen many times. Bird's shot is near unblockable....you were just too young kid sorry.

No one in this thread has mentioned intangibles. Bird was one of the most driven and homicidally competitive players the league has ever seen. He was also one of the best clutch players as well. These things translate to all forms of basketball.

Bird would win, and by a comfortable margin.

Easy, he wouldn't, Bird can try to back Pippen down but we are talking about one of the better defenders who ever played, good luck with that.

You were TOO YOUNG kid, move along. You don't know what your talking about....you'd have to actually have seen these guys matched up, which they did back in the day, and Pippen had all he could handle with Bird, trust me.

Don't be a fool. Scottie pippen was a rookie. And that's in a team setting. What about that can you not comprehend? It wasn't pippen vs bird one on one. And that was mainly bird dogging brad sellers anyway.

This is 1 v 1.

Bird routinely dogged Pippen...i don't respect your opinion on this matter, i can tell for a fact you've never seen these 2 matched up...sorry dude but you don't know what the hell your talking about.
