Scottie Pippen on Lakers season: The sacrifice wasn't there

When it comes to the NBA post-season, Scottie Pippen knows a thing or- six about winning. The NBA hall of famer and six-time NBA champion weighed in on the Lakers disappointing season. “I just felt like, this season, the sacrifice wasn’t there,” explained Pippen, who was a Lakers fan growing up. “The players are obviously very talented. They brought in some players who are very knowledgeable about the game and can still play at a very high level, but I just felt like there wasn’t a lot of sacrifice from the individuals. That really caused that team to have a lot of chaos throughout the season.”
The Chicago Bulls alum said the Lakers lacked “chemistry” this season and compared them to the Golden State Warriors who have “figured it out. ” “Steph, Klay, Draymond- those guys are leaders on their team. Those guys make that team go.” Pippen knows quite a bit about having an ideal teammate, when asked if he’d ever play with Michael Jordan again he didn’t hesitate with the answer. “Yes! I would play with only Michael Jordan,” Pippen explained.
