Shaq Wants To Punch Scottie Pippen ‘Right in His Esophagus’ Over Michael Jordan Slander

Shaquille O’Neal has never been one to mince his words, so it’s no shock that he had such a strong take on Scottie Pippen and him blasting Michael Jordan.

Scottie has said a ton of things about his former teammate and possibly former friend, but he better never say that he was the better player of the two in front of Shaq.

Pippen never said he was better than Jordan. He said he was a better teammate and as good as him. However, if he plans on taking it to the next level, Shaq will set him straight.

“He didn’t say that,” O’Neal said. “He never said that. If that man say that in front of me, imma hit him right in his esophagus. Bro, do not finish that sentence. He’s trying to, well, I don’t wanna put words in his mouth, I think he’s trying to sell his book.”

As his way of retaliating to the ‘Last Dance’ documentary, Pippen wrote that Jordan wasn’t a good teammate in his book.

“I was a much better teammate than Michael ever was,” Pippen wrote. “Ask anyone who played with the two of us. I was always there with a pat on the back or an encouraging word, especially after he put someone down for one reason or another. I helped the others to believe in and stop doubting themselves. In the doc, Michael attempted to justify the occasions in which he berated a teammate in front of the group. He felt these guys needed to develop the toughest to get past the NBA’s more physical teams. Seeing again how poorly Michael treated his teammates, I cringed, as I did back then.”

Aside from his fluctuating best player ever takes, Pippen had never taken shots at Jordan in the media until that documentary came out in 2020.

What has been said and done now will likely keep them from ever speaking with each other.

According to Los Angeles Lakers source Anthony Irwin, Draymond Green may have been the catalyst for talks between the Golden State Warriors and former Lakers coach Darvin Ham. Rumors circulated earlier this week that Ham and the Bay Area team had discussed Ham’s possible job as assistant coach.

Irwin clarified the purpose of the two sides’ discussion. However, although it was well-agreed that a coach would take Kenny Atkinson’s position if he were to depart the Warriors. According to The Athletic’s Jovan Buha, a Lakers reporter, Irwin emphasized veteran forward Draymond Green at the meeting.

Jovan Buha said at 35:58 timestamp: “For the Warriors specifically, he and Draymond are from the same neighborhood. Draymond has some issues flying off the handle. If Steve Kerr tells Darvin who is a big guy, a big authority, ‘Hey, just tell Draymond not to do Draymond stuff? Just make sure he doesn’t get suspended.’ I could actually see Darvin being great there.”

Ham was let go after playing with the Lakers for two seasons and leading the team to consecutive postseason appearances. However, he received release papers when the Denver Nuggets defeated him in back-to-back postseason series.

Ham was an assistant coach for several clubs before joining the Lakers, including the Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards, Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks, and Nuggets.
