Scottie Pippen Says ‘It’s Hard To Put Tom Brady’ At Top Of NFL GOAT Talk

“Is this your GOAT?” – Scottie Pippen, probably.

As part of a promotional tour for his recently released memoir, “Unguarded,” Pippen has spoken extensively about some of the most revered personalities in NBA history, namely his Hall of Fame teammate Michael Jordan. In a recent interview with GQ’s Tyler Tynes, Pippen took him out of the basketball world, sharing his take on seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady.

“It’s hard to put Tom Brady at the top of the NFL,” Pippen began, drawing an analogy to where he ranks among the all-time basketball greats.

“Although [Brady has] won a lot of leagues, there are almost 70 players on each team, so does he play all sides of football? Is he at the kick-off? Is he on punt returns? Because if he doesn’t play all the roles, then he has to give his team some credit. “

BENDER: Sorry, Brady’s enemies, you’re running out of anti-GOAT arguments.

Pippen has come full circle, claiming he places himself with the greatest team to ever play in the NBA, alluding to the fact that Brady has also benefited from playing on some of the greatest teams to ever play in the NFL.

Pippen’s latest comments match what he wrote in his memoir about the Bulls Dynasty of 1996-98 versus the more recent Warriors dynasty of 2016-19.

Still, his words don’t do too much to diminish the resume of Brady, who has won seven Super Bowls, five Super Bowl MVPs, and three NFL MVP Awards and is the league’s all-time leader in career wins, touchdowns and passes. .

At the age of 44, Brady remains at the top of his game and, after 10 weeks of action, is second among betting favorites to win the MVP award again.

Pippen is apparently the type to put a team’s accolades above a player’s, but some players like Brady and Jordan have resumes that are impossible to minimize. We will then see if he intervenes in the career of Wayne Gretzky.
