For those that follow basketball, how has Scottie Pippen's integrity remained intact over the years?

I'm only going from what I've seen in The Last Dance, but delaying foot surgery and refusing to take the court in a playoff because he was sooking like a little bitch.....that's bloody disgraceful.

which game did he refuse? 1998 finals? his back was ruined

scottie is a legit legend

Nah was in 94 I think mate in the playoffs, it's in the doco.

They had less than 2 seconds to win. The coach opted have a set play with Kukic (spelling?) getting the ball for the shot. Pippen spat the dummy because he thought it should have been him so just refused to go back on.

I find that astonishing.

loads of star players want the final shot but the better shooters all need to take it

Patty Mills is a good news story though. Playing like he's found a 3-pointer cheat code
