The second episode of "The Last Dance" focused on Scottie Pippen at the start. His rise from college obscurity to top draft pick is chronicled and there is a story Charles Oakley recounts of Pippen saying he wanted to be better than Michael Jordan, who at that point had only played in the league for a few years and was still transcending into the global superstar we know today.
And then there is this story of a rookie Pippen and veteran Jordan interacting.
"Michael was such a superstar in the game of basketball and he was bigger than any superstar than any sport had ever had, it wasn’t like he was any average guy and like let’s go have lunch. It’s different," Pippen said.
"My rookie year he gave me a pair of golf clubs."
A producer from off-camera chimed in: "That’s a nice thing to do, to give a rookie a set of golf clubs."
"He was trying to lure me in so he could take all my money," Pippen retorted as he chuckled.
Pippen didn't say whether or not he ever played Jordan with those golf clubs and lost money to him. The documentary immediately pivoted to his below-market contract in 1991 and Pippen talked about taking the deal to avoid potentially getting injured and losing out on money.
He made the wrong decision and was a very underpaid played during the Bulls title runs.
