No Diplomattin' Pippen
I just can't decide if I'd rather have a really long conversation with Scottie Pippen or Sam Smith.
"What's my disadvantage?" Pippen asked. "No NBA coaching experience? [Scott] Skiles' record with the Bulls wasn't that great. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to do what you've done your whole life. I've played basketball, run teams and won.And you do even less from the bench. Scottie shooting on Andres Nocioni is going on the mantle.
"I'd sit down with him and say, 'Show me you're a winner and play like it. Not with those crazy antics. Make your hustle work in a positive way.' He's turning into Rasheed Wallace with the kinds of things he does on floor. It makes the officials turn on the whole team. And you stop getting calls. Don't shoot those ill-advised shots. Don't look to get bailed out by the refs."I know I'm going hate the sticky, messy nostalgia that this will inspire around the Bullsosphere, but Scottie has some fucking sweet ideas. Good thing there's plenty of time to consider the drawbacks regarding Coach Pippen.
