Scottie Pippen Says Kobe is second only to Jordan in past few decades

With seemingly the entire sports world celebrating Kobe Bryant’s career on social media, Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen — who squared off with Bryant in the epic 2000 Western Conference Finals — chimed in with a lengthy series of tweets about the retiring legend.


Pippen, who retired in 2004, faced Bryant head-to-head 38 times in his career, mostly in his years with the Portland Trail Blazers. Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers were victorious in 13 of their 21 regular-season meetings and 13 of their 17 playoff games, with Bryant sending Pippen home for the season four consecutive years from 1999 to 2002 — the last three en route to the first three of Bryant’s five NBA championship rings.
