Scottie Pippen says Russell Westbrook’s season is the greatest he’s ever seen (VIDEO)
Scottie Pippen is a Hall of Fame player. He played with the player many believe is the greatest of all-time, Michael Jordan. As a member of the Chicago Bulls, Pippen witnessed five NBA MVP awards go to Jordan.
So when Pippen says this season has been special for James Harden and Russell Westbrook, it carries a little extra weight.
How much weight?
Pippen appeared to intimate that none of Jordan’s individual seasons -- including those in which he won MVP -- were as good as the one Westbrook has put forth for the Oklahoma City Thunder. A season that just might see Westbrook break Oscar Robertson’s single-season record for triple-doubles, by the way.
Speaking on ESPN with Tracy McGrady, Pippen said it was the greatest performance he’s ever seen.
Is that high praise, or dark shade?
Makes you think.
