    Pippen had a rightly earned rep for being softie much of his career. (Thd migraine game). You could be physical with him and he'd shy away....which is what Xavier McDaniels did to him at both ends of the floor in the '92 playoffs. Xman bossed him.

    LOL I remember MJ stepping in and taking a T when Softie was getting an earful from Xman. Dude was shook.
    in typical delusional KNICK fan fashion always remember shit the didn't happen. I will do nothing to sway you mind. fact of the matter is you don't become on of the 50 greatest players of all time by being soft.

    now if you want to talk about the an entire career being soft ALLAN HOUSTON would be a more appropriate mold for the title.

    Dude not to derail the thread but are you serious????. YOU remove the greatest PLAYER ever in the history of basketball (some may argue) from a TEAM and replace him with PETE MYERS and you talk about the FRAMEWORK was in place??? this is comical at best.
    Phil was still there and all the players there understood the triangle. It's not as if it was a team of misfits so doh act stupid. Tell us about the mighty Pipen in Portland and Houston. Don't worry no one will laugh since we all know he was not up to the billing.

    are you saying that Michael Jordan was not important, he was just another pawn in the offense and you could simply input anyone....

    by the time Scottie made it to Port/Hous i am sure even you could admit that his skill set had set to diminish much like Patrick in Orlando, or Jordan in Washington come on dudes.

    Yes Payton is... But Scottie, MJ, Rodman and Chris Paul are up there too... Olajuwan, Bill Russell and Mutombo as big men

    lol@chris paul...you out your mind..Chris Paul is the anchor and qb of that defense? You crazy....quick hands don't make up for lack of effort, acting/flopping, and bad footwork from Paul...he's not the best defender at PG right now...so please let him off the top defender discussion.

    go read the title of the read and come back with a more appropriate response. How the hell you can put CHRIS PAUL in this discussion is beyond me...

    You're obviously a Bulls worshipper that obviously fell off the bandwagon after the 97-98 season and only concerned about the end results of those years. You believe Pippen is THE most impactful defender you've ever seen, in an era of Olajuwon and Robinson carrying defences night in and out. Bwoy mi cah help yuh there,lol.

    Other than the brief hiatus of MJ, Pippen never even remotely approached either of those guys as a defensive force. And he was still inferior within that span as well to either.

    If you care to rewatch the games from the '92 playoffs XMan intimidated, bullied and outplayed Pippen over the course of that series h2h.

    Call it the X-files. It certainly has been a mystery. Xavier McDaniel helps the New York Knicks to the brink of one of the greatest upsets in NBA playoff history by outplaying Scottie Pippen and getting the Knicks to a seventh game against the Bulls' best team, the 1991-92 group, which won 67 games

    He went to Houston at age 33!
    Blazers a year later.

    If he was so great why at 33 he was ready to be put out to pasture? You talkin ah pack ah shit!

    Pippen did have a reputation of being soft.
    Great defender but didn't like being roughed up.

    go ahead and rest an mans entire career on one playoff series considering the large amount he played.

    When your total argument about and mans entire career rest on series that only highlights the weakness in your argument. It would be like saying Patrick Ewing was an over hype, soft, blown up center cause he had nothing for Hakeem in their NBA playoff series....

    PS: was the the highlight of X man's career...

    No one in todays league should be mentioned as great defenders besides Kobe, Duncan, Tony Allen, Iguodala, and Garnett. Everyone else is a soft flopper.

    Best PG Defender...fwiw, Avery Bradley.
