Pippen Retracts His Words on Lebron James Being Best Player Ever


Pippen infamously made headlines before the NBA Finals after basically stating that LeBron James is the greatest to ever play the game. Whether the¬†premature¬†accolades went to LeBron’s head or not, he failed to deliver in the fourth quarter of the 2011 NBA Finals on multiple occasions, as the Heat fell to the Dallas Mavericks in six games.

In the wake of Miami’s collapse (losing the Finals after holding a 2-1 lead), MJ’s old sidekick found it neccessary to retract his words and state that Michael Jeffrey Jordan indeed is the best ever.

From cbssports.com:

Pippen says “all know that [Jordan’s] the greatest player that ever played the game” and that his comments were taken “a little bit out of context.”

Makes me wonder .. Wouldn’t it have been easier to have just kept quiet .. or at least wait for the result of the Finals?


  1. Just goes to show that there’s no such thing as “free speech” in the US as everyone pretends there is. Say anything, and every douche-bag from here to Mississippi jumps on your back. Losers.
