Defending Scottie Pippen

Check out my latest at The Partial Observer. Excerpt:

Last Friday, ex-Bulls star and former teammate of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, suggested that LeBron James may be the greatest basketball player of all time.

This provoked a media frenzy, in which Pippen was criticized relentlessly. He subsequently backtracked and clarified that James has the potential to be as great as Jordan.

I don't know enough about basketball to agree or disagree with what Pippen initially said.

I did listen to it live and was surprised to hear Pippen's remarks. But even at the time I appreciated what Pippen meant, even if he now regrets his phraseology.
