    @Gerald Green my bad I replied to the wrong person 😂😂 but you're absolutely right, with it being a positionless league now you even have power forwards who can take the ball up the floor.

    People forget that Scottie pippen is the greatest perimeter defender of all time

  • Sassonic 10 days ago

    @aleksey aleksey I hear you. But, the original comment was Pippen was the "greatest perimeter defender of all-time." That's what I strongly disagree with. He's not even close to that in my book, he was never even defensive-player-of-the-year.

  • aleksey aleksey 10 days ago

    @Sassonic by 30s pippen's back was shot. similar injuries i think that took out larry bird.pippen played point forward so he had to work hard every play on offense and defense while michael would get breathers to save himself for the fourth.everyone gets beat off the dribble from time to time, even klay and kawhi. but by the end of the game the guy they were guarding is dead tired from the constant pressure and from having to take bad shots. part of making the elite offensive players taking bad shots...

    This made me gain so much respect for Pippen’s Defensive IQ after the Bucks Game where bledsoe made Harden look like a highschooler

    LOL Pippen and McGrady said Harden travels. When two greats say it, just accept it as truth.

    king_has_no_cloths kul they are just exaggerating they know it is a stretch of the rules

  • Team should hire Pippen as Defensive Coach because he's one of the greatest defender ever....

  • Arrielle75 3 days ago

    His answers to stopping Harden are simple common sense answers ...hard to score if you don't have the ball or have limited time

  • Paul Cotton 11 days ago

    shubham katyal he has enough to not have to work a job ever again for the rest of his life. So yes he does have that much and doesn’t need the headache to coach.
