Former NBA player Dennis Rodman is optimistic that his former Chicago Bulls teammates, Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, will be able to resolve their current feud. Despite Pippen expressing his frustration with Jordan following the release of the “Last Dance” documentary in 2020, Rodman believes that their friendship will eventually be repaired.
Former Bulls teammates and basketball legends Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen are currently experiencing a strained relationship. However, their former teammate Dennis Rodman believes that despite recent tensions, they will eventually be able to settle their differences and restore their friendship.
Scottie Pippen felt that the “Last Dance” documentary failed to properly highlight the contributions of his teammates to the success of the Bulls dynasty. In response, Pippen has been publicly criticizing Jordan, even going as far as calling him a “horrible player” before joining the team in 1987. He has also expressed his admiration for LeBron James and referred to him as the “G.O.A.T.”
A Different Dynamic
However, according to Rodman, the current tension between Pippen and Jordan is not reflective of their relationship during their playing days. During the 1990s, when Rodman was a part of the Bulls, he never witnessed any feuding between the two superstars. In fact, off the court, they spent time together, playing golf, and traveling as friends.
A Bit of Bitterness
Rodman believes that recent events have led to some bitterness on Pippen’s part, while Jordan has remained more laid back about the situation. While acknowledging the challenges, Rodman still has faith that they will be able to resolve their differences and mend their friendship.
An Unusual Twist
Adding an intriguing element to their feud, Pippen’s ex-wife is now dating Jordan’s son, Marcus. Earlier this year, Michael Jordan jokingly stated that he did not approve of the relationship, although Marcus later clarified the comment as a joke. Despite this unexpected connection, the hope remains that Jordan and Pippen can put aside their differences.
