Scottie Pippen has decided to tell his version of events during the Chicago Bulls‘ era of dominance in the NBA during the 1990s.
Pippen‘s place in history has been reduced to living in Michael Jordan‘s shadow, as reflected by ‘The Last Dance’ documentary, and the legendary forward will release a book later in the year to redress what he feels is an unfair imbalance.
“Without Pippen there are no championship flags, let alone six, hanging in the United Center. There is no documentary. There is no Michael Jordan as we knew him,” reads the preview of ‘Unguarded’.
The book reveals how Pippen felt a lack of respect from his franchise and the media, in spite of his outstanding contributions.
“Scottie Pippen details how he embarrassed himself being tagged for public opinion as Jordan’s teammate, and comments on how he could and should have received more respect from Bulls officials and the media,” one part read.
The book will be released on November 16 and promises to be an explosive read.
“Here, Pippen talks about what it was like to deal with Jordan on a day-to-day basis as he stood out as the true leader in the Bulls locker room,” another part read.
