Scottie Pippen is a man of the people meaning he isn’t fibbing when he says the legendary Michael Jordan and his Bobcats — whom have the league’s worst record at 10.6% — embarrassing.
“I’m very surprised, I mean, he’s a competitor,” Pippen said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “But this is a different side of the business. His competitive spirit can’t help him out on the basketball court in terms of putting points on the board, but he’s a driven guy. He’s a competitor, and I expect him to be able to bounce back from it.
“You don’t expect anything like that to be happening to the greatest player in the game, and you don’t want to see that happen to him. It’s definitely embarrassing, and something you don’t want to associate with Michael Jordan’s name.
“Hopefully, he can come out of this. You know, when you’re at the bottom, there’s only one way to come up. He knows, and I guess the organization knows that they have a lot of work to do going forward and making some of the right decisions and the players that they are selecting.”
I believe Pippen is being considerate when he is calling them ’embarrassing,’ I would use the word ’pathetic’ myself.
Scottie is also correct on another platform, just because a professional athlete is a GOD on the court, doesn’t mean that transfers to the business side of things.
In Layman’s Terms: just because you CAN, doesn’t mean you should DO.
Plus, as we all know, Michael Jordan isn’t the most business savvy.
