Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen have seen better days, as Pippen revealed that he hasn’t spoken to Jordan since ‘The Last Dance’ premiered last year.
The two made an incredibly dynamic duo during the 90’s, famously winning six championships together. They were also friends at the time albeit their difference in opinions at the time.
All that has changed 20 plus years down the line. Jordan and Pippen are no longer talking to each other, and Pippen doesn’t miss a single opportunity to talk down his former teammate. From calling him selfish to saying he scripted conversations, Pippen has found away to pick apart MJ in every way possible.
Scottie Pippen described Phil Jackson as racist and Michael Jordan as “selfish” in an interview with Dan Patrick.
Patrick gave Pippen an out, but he doubled down: “I was in the locker room with him, I was in practices with him; you’re looking from afar.” https://t.co/kEBPXBO2sA

Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen Have Not Spoken Since ‘The Last Dance’ Nor Do They Plan To
‘The Last Dance’ was an incredible documentary for the way it portrayed Michael Jordan. However, Pippen was unhappy and frustrated with the way he was portrayed. That’s led to a long-standing feud between him and Jordan that doesn’t look like it’ll be resolved anytime soon.
Pippen was unhappy with a number of things about the documentary, something he admitted in an interview with Dan Patrick recently. Pippen’s mindset has always been that it was the Chicago Bulls and not Jordan alone that dominated that era of basketball.

That’s why he was unhappy with how ‘The Last Dance’ dedicated a significant amount of screen time to Jordan’s baseball days instead of the Bulls.
When asked if Pippen and Jordan had connected since ‘The Last Dance’, Pippen was very blunt in saying that they hadn’t and that they probably weren’t going to in the near future.
“No. I mean, I think we both moved on in our life. There’s nothing to be holding onto that went on 20-plus years ago. There’s nothing for us to talk about. I mean, we could talk about our lives and our families and our golf games or something but we ain’t gotta go back and clarify nothing that happened in the ’90s.”
