Not the best spacing, but much like Miami, the defensive versatility is ridiculous

Skips disrespect of Pippen is just idiotic. Seems like he realized he messed up but still stuck to his guns.  A prime Pippen would put the clamps on KD & LBJ.

Rodman during that span was a defensive force to be reckoned with himself and rebounding goes without saying, in some ways Id put him at the 4 and slide Worthy at 3 over Pippen. No love for Mr. Skyhook like always.

 

Little surprised he put Magic though, I was expecting may Payton or something considering who MJ is.

Magic was one of my all time favorite players to watch.  He could score at will, make needle threading passes on the run, and rebound.  He made his teammates better players if they were ready for one of his no-look passes.

 

Pippen was a scoring threat and a defensive asset.

 

Surprised, but not shocked about Olajuwon.  Tremendous power center who could dominate the game in his prime.

 

James Worthy was a dead eye with the corner baseline shot but I'm surprised he's on the team.

Prime Pippen couldn't even put the clamps on a 19 year old Kobe.  Even still Skip is an idiot.  Surprising that people still watch that stupid show.  0 basketball or sports analysis worth listening to.  Jalen and Mark Cuban crushed them.

Something Skip would say....

Try & score.
