Scottie Pippen talks Steph Curry, best PF ever, his toughest opponent

scottie-pippen-smile-frontrowVery few NBA players of the 1990’s had such a fluid and smooth game as Scottie Pippen, who helped the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan to capture six NBA titles in the 90s. In 2010, Pippen got inducted into the Hall of Fame.

An active social media user, Pippen recently spoke to the fans on Twitter, responding to some questions.

Pippen in particular seems to be of high opinion of the Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard and Tim Duncan. Former Bulls star called Leonard “one of the best players in the game”, and Duncan “best PF of all time, and an inspiration to watch.”

Speaking of the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry, Pippen said he hasn’t seen anyone shoot better basketball.

“Only way to stop Steph is to keep the ball out of his hands. Make his teammates beat you,” Pippen tweeted.

As for his toughest opponent, Pippen named someone very few people would’ve expected.

“In my early years it was Adrian Dantley. He had slowed down a little but for a few seasons he was dropping 30 a night,” Pippen said, responding to a question on who was his toughest opponent.

Pippen won six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990’s. In 1996, he was named one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players.

During his NBA career, Pippen played for the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Portland TrailBlazers. He played in a total of 1178 NBA games (1053 started), averaging 16.1 ppg, 6.4 rpg and 5.2 apg in 34.9 minutes per game.
