Scottie Pippen hates Michael Jordan‘s guts right now, but not all hope is lost for the legendary Bulls duo’s friendship … so says their former teammate, Dennis Rodman, who believes the two will eventually bury the hatchet.
It’s no secret — Pippen was pissed over the ‘Last Dance’ documentary that dropped back in 2020 … claiming the Jordan-produced project glossed over his teammates’ contributions to the Bulls dynasty and focused too much on #23.
Pippen has gone out of his way to throw verbal jabs at Jordan ever since … calling him a “horrible player” before Scottie joined the team in 1987 and declaring LeBron James the G.O.A.T. in his eyes.
Rodman says the beef between the two is nothing like their dynamic during their playing days … as he never saw them feuding during his time on the Bulls in the ’90s.
“No, I never saw that before,” Rodman claims. “I never saw them fight. Even after the season, I never saw that. They were always hanging out together, playing golf together, traveling together.”
Things are totally different now, but the Worm seems to think the friendship is still salvageable.
“It’s just a lot of things that’s happened over the last couple of years. So, I think Scottie’s a little bitter and Michael’s more laid back and say, ‘Okay, like whatever,’ but they’re gonna work it out.”
Scottie and MJ’s feud has taken an interesting turn recently as well … with Pippen’s ex-wife dating Jordan’s son, Marcus.
As we previously reported, Michael said he didn’t approve of the relationship back in July … but Marcus later claimed his pops was joking.
Here’s hoping the two guys can sit down and squash the beef for good.
