“I think it was a good trade for both sides,” Pippen told SLAM. “I was sorry to see Derrick leave, but I think it was time for the organization to start looking at their plans going forward. And I’m sure, looking at his past, he was probably not in the plans for the future for them, so I think it was a good deal for both of them. Derrick is coming to a great market where he can continue to grow in the game and do well.”

We got McGrady out at LAX and asked him about his claim that he was almost traded for Scottie Pippen during the 1997 NBA Draft. The Bulls went on to win a ring that year so the question is … would they have won that title with a young McGrady instead of an old(ish) Pip? Check out the clip — T-Mac keeps it real … saying he was just too damn young (18 when he was drafted) to help the Bulls win a ‘chip in ’97.
The 2015-16 Golden State Warriors might have eclipsed the record for regular season wins, but their failure to win a championship means the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls are still the greatest team in NBA history, at least according to two of that team’s most vocal players. Scottie Pippen was asked at the end of an interview with ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike” on Monday who the greatest team in NBA history was after the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to stun the Warriors and win the NBA Finals in seven games. “The 1995-96 Bulls,” Pippen said. “We live on.”
“We had done so well and now we’re faced with the same thing that the Warriors were faced with. Can this team be considered one of the greatest teams? Well, you can’t be considered a great team until you win a championship. “No matter how well you do in the regular season, it has to be capped off with a championship, to really mark your legacy in the game. That’s where we see Golden State had some failure there. They lost their dominance throughout the playoffs.”
