    I thought it was a pisstake at first and then I read the interview on GQ.
    Basically, where the Last Dance talks about Scottie 'quitting on the team' because Phil Jackson drew up the last second shot for Toni Kukoc.  Scottie says now that move has 'racial tones' because Scottie was the man and MVP candidate and should have taken the last shot.
    Huh?
    When questioned about Jordan's pass to Steve Kerr (or maybe John Paxon?) he said that was for the cameras ...
    I really don't get it ... I'm sure I read a while back Pip was having financial issues ... but since the Last Dance came out, he's started really changing his tune in public ...
    Sad

    Pippen's a right sourpuss. Always been.

    I mean he's never forgiven the Bulls for the contract issue (what was it, 7 years for 18 million?)
    But I can't tell how much of what he's saying has any semblance of fact, or something between "I need to try and make money" or "I need to try and make people think less of Jordan and Jackson so they think of me more highly"

    Let’s also be clear, he signed that contract willingly. Not under duress. He can complain that he got bad advice, but that’s on him. Locking in a shitload of money over the longer term rather than taking a higher risk approach of shorter term contracts with potentially bigger per year remuneration was 100% his decision.

    Yup, for sure ... it was a great contract at the time, but it was also just as the NBA exploded.
    His examples on Dan Patrick's show as to why Jackson is racist is 1) setting up a play for Kukoc and b) writing a book about Kobe.
    I mean, he comes off like a fucking jackass.

    His son died two months ago and he's trying to promote some new Whiskey he's created.

    He's either not coping very well or willing to say anything to get noticed.

    He's said some other really strange things as well lately.
