Are Scottie Pippen and MJ still friends?

The anticipation for a legendary reunion of the iconic Chicago Bulls' team was met with disappointment as Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen chose to skip the inaugural Ring of Honor gala.

This event was intended to bring together 13 players, coaches, and executives, including Jordan, Pippen, and other key figures from the Bulls' history.

Despite their absence, Michael Jordan did provide an impassioned tribute to the team's fans, expressing his gratitude and honor for their support.

The Last Dance: A Strained Friendship

The strained relationship between Jordan and Pippen became evident after the release of the 2020 Netflix documentary, 'The Last Dance'.

The documentary shed light on their turbulent friendship, and since then, Pippen has made several public remarks, including calling Jordan a "horrible player".

This public friction led to Pippen's dismissal as the franchise's ambassador, further highlighting the depth of their discord.

Changing Narratives: Pippen's Shifting Views

Scottie Pippen's public statements about the greatest player in NBA history have also been subject to change.

In May 2023, he referred to LeBron James as the best player, only to later retract this statement and reinstate Michael Jordan as the greatest player in basketball history.

This inconsistency in his views has sparked speculation about the underlying dynamics of his relationship with Jordan and its impact on his public statements.

Family Ties: Marcus Jordan and Larsa Pippen

The tension between the two basketball legends is further fueled by personal connections. It's worth noting that Marcus Jordan, Michael Jordan's son, is currently in a relationship with Larsa Pippen, Scottie Pippen's ex-wife.

This familial entanglement has added another layer of complexity to the already strained relationship between Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

The Future of Their Friendship

The question of whether Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen can mend their friendship remains unanswered. Despite their historical success and the memories of their championship dynasty, the rift between them seems deep-rooted and has persisted for years.

The missed opportunity for a reunion at the Ring of Honor gala further highlights the challenges in their relationship.

 

All in all, the relationship between Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen continues to be a topic of intrigue and speculation in the basketball world.

Their absence from the Ring of Honor gala and the public remarks made by both parties reflect the complexities of their friendship. 

The strained friendship between Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen continues to captivate the basketball community, leaving many to wonder if their legendary partnership can withstand the test of time.
