Pippen has been on a scorched earth tour since the “Last Dance” premiered in 2020. Not a fan of the way he was depicted in the documentary, Pippen has been teasing his tell-all memoir “Unguarded” and is making the rounds on national media.
Nobody was safe during the GQ interview.
Of course, he came for his superstar teammate Michael Jordan. Long viewed as the GOAT NBA player, MJ’s legend seemingly grows every year. To hear some people tell it, MJ won his titles with a bunch of dudes from 24 Hour Fitness. Pippen takes exception to that
