Fans are clapping back at Scottie Pippen for giving LeBron James too much credit on the court.
When it comes to the NBA, there are few players as great or well-recognized as the Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James, 36. Even though LeBron is surely one of the greatest of all time, former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen, 55, landed in hot water when he said that LeBron “won a championship without any help” on Twitter on Friday June 25.
In the tweet, Scottie tagged ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith, 53, who broke down Brooklyn Nets Small Forward Kevin Durant’s, 32, tweet calling out Scottie, after the former Bull said KD hasn’t “surpassed” Durant in a GQ profile. What Scottie seemed to miss when he tweeted was that Stephen was saying that KD’s response to Scottie was “unnecessary.” He explained that as a six-time championship winner, Scottie is plenty qualified to give basketball analysis.

After Scottie tweeted that LeBron took home a championship ring on his own, Stephen listed players he felt were important to LeBron’s career: Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh with the Miami Heat, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Anthony Davis with the Lakers.
