Earlier this week, Scottie Pippen made some remarkable statements and tried to make us believe he was the original Lebron James. It is obvious that Scottie is a great basketball player, and a hall of famer, however, Lebron James stats and talent level cannot be compared in anyway shape or form to that of Pippen. Charles Barkley did not hesitate to fire back and make it clear that Pippen cannot be compared to the great King James.
Here is what Barkley said: “No. No, he wasn’t, ..Scottie was a terrific player. But Scottie wasn’t a guy who could get you 30 every night. He was a terrific defender, but he wasn’t gonna get you 10 rebounds. LeBron could get you 30 a night. He’s the best defender — Scottie was a great defender. But he wasn’t gonna get you a bunch of rebounds every night. So the answer to that question is no.”
