“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.
