Scottie Pippen describes the moment he knew he’d make it to the NBA | The Jump

Published

on

In a new feature on The Jump called “When Did You Know?”, former Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen describes the moment during his younger years that he knew he would make it to the NBA. He also talks about the 1987 NBA Draft, when he was taken fifth overall and traded from the Seattle SuperSonics to Michael Jordan’s team. Finally, Rachel Nichols, Tracy McGrady and Brian Windhorst discuss what would have happened had the Sonics not traded Pippen for Olden Polynice.

    If Seattle kept scottie pippen just imagine that squad with gary payton and Shawn kemp. I think that team would have had something to say in the 90’s. History might’ve different. Just saying

      You would have to factor in that if Seattle keeps Pippen and does not trade him for Olden Polynice, that the Supersonics would be much better and wouldn’t have the chance to draft both Shawn Kemp in 1989 at #17 overall and Gary Payton in 1990 at #2 overall. The Sonics could still have drafted Kemp in ’89, but I highly doubt that Seattle would have the #2 overall pick in ’90 with both Pippen and Kemp on the roster, so drafting Payton that high in the draft would be unrealistic. I know this is all hypothetical, but Pippen, Kemp, and Payton being teammates in Seattle would have been a long shot

    When Pippen was drafted he claimed not to know about the Bulls trade, but he just said Jerry Krause called him before the draft 😂

    We should’ve won a championship in 2000 when we had him in Portland we were so stacked

      That Lakers team was too strong once they added Shaq.

      I agree! Brian Shaw bank shot 3 pt to end 3rd in Game 7 was bad omen. Instead of 17 pt lead going to 4th it was 14 and LA crowd went wild and Blazers couldn’t buy a bucket or a call in 4th.

      Coulda Woulda Shoulda, not with the Lakers dynasty standing in their way. Pippen was only averaging 12 points per game back in 2000, and only 15 a game in the playoffs that season. He was a shell of his former self and well past his prime
