Scottie Pippen Wrote the Short-Handed Chicago Bulls an Open Letter


Ever since their best player and leader Derrick Rose went down with a devastating knee injury, the Chicago Bulls (past and present) have taken to writing one another inspirational messages. Bulls legend Scottie Pippen posted an open letter on the team’s website today. Here’s an excerpt: “With what happened to Derrick in Game 1, it would be easy to hang your heads right now. You could lose sight of the ultimate goal and give up before the rest of the games have even been played. But I know that’s not even a consideration for this group. And that’s exactly why you’ll make me, Derrick, the organization, and the city of Chicago so proud. To a man, it’s time for each of you to take a look in the mirror. Decide who you really are and what you represent as a basketball player. Reflect on what you have brought to the table for your team all season long and why you’re a valuable member of the Bulls. Because all of you have contributed to this team’s incredible success. Ask yourself what you can do for the team moving forward. Whether it’s through your verbal leadership or diving on the floor after a loose ball, it’s going to be all about grinding it out moving forward. If there is one piece of advice I can offer you, it’s to put every last ounce of effort you have out there to make everyone proud—Derrick, the fans, and first and foremost, yourself. Your team has come a long way in terms of what it has been able to achieve this season. And that was done collectively, as a group. It has never been about any one individual. Yes, Derrick was the reigning NBA MVP, but he epitomizes the team concept and you all followed his lead. So it’s been the effort of the group, as well as a tremendous job by the coaching staff, which has gotten us to this point. And it’s exactly why I feel good about this team right now. You’re a group that remains together. You’ve repeatedly lifted each other up when a teammate has fallen. Now, it comes down to continuing to give your best effort every time you step on to the basketball court. It’s easy to say you’re doing that, but are you really dedicating yourself to another two months of basketball? As a player, that’s what I always wanted out of my teammates. Just make sure you arrive on gameday focused and full of energy. If guys want to just show up and take on the 76ers or whoever, well, that might not be enough to get the job done. It takes locking in on the task at hand and honing in on what you need to do in order to be successful in the NBA postseason. While I dealt with my share of injuries throughout my career, I was fortunate to have been healthy for the majority of our run in the 1990’s. The same can be said about Michael Jordan. But, when Michael retired for the first time to play baseball in 1993, we were faced with a similar challenge to what you’re up against—playing without your best player and leader. Granted, Michael chose to step away from the game and Derrick is sidelined because of his injury, but it comes down to the players who are still out there coming together to collectively rise up as a group and win games. We exceeded a lot of expectations in the regular season, finishing 55-27. But as we entered the postseason, a lot of people had written us off and said we didn’t have a chance without Michael. There was a lot of talk about how we wouldn’t make it out of the first round and might even get swept. But we didn’t listen to any of that. We believed in ourselves and we went out to play the type of basketball that we knew we were capable of playing. We swept Cleveland in the first round and it was a great feeling. Even though we ultimately fell short and lost to New York in a second round Game 7, we all believed we could have—and should have—done better. My point is that there was never a moment where we felt sorry for ourselves or let anyone push us into any self-doubt. We stayed positive and believed that if we stuck together and played good, hard defense, we could beat any team out there. That’s what I believe you can do as well.”

    Scottiee…beam me up

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Isn’t that the year Scottie refused to come off the bench, because Phil Jackson designed the last play for Toni Kukoc? That’s right…Pippen was pissed off at Phil for not drawing up a play to put the rock in his hands with a chance to win the game, so he refused to come back in the game. Toni hit the winner to keep the Bulls from going down 0-3 to the Knicks. Can you imagine if Pippen or anyone else pulled that kind of stunt now in this day and age with all the exposure athletes get? Nice letter though.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    “Don’t give up! Stay focused on the task at hand and dream big! Like the second round!” Call me Mr. Negativity, but while inspired, this has as much influence as Reggie Miller trying to give Lebron advice on how to prepare for a championship run.

  • Zack

    The Bulls played without DRose for most of the season… I don’t see what the fuss is about.

  • Darren

    I like the bit about the team having to stick together; that should mean respecting the coach’s orders and not complaining about who gets the last shot, right?

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Scottie “Life Coach” Pippen’s message to the Bulls:
    Awaken The Giant Within You

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Or go eat a deep dish pizza and forget about it.

  • Bt

    @Orange – Simmons book of basketball gives a reasonable explanation for scotty’s behavior – popish was on a dodgy contract while kukoc was been paid well, Krause love kukoc and pippin thought he was been underappreciated considering he had taken over the bulls post-jordan and they were doing well. He saw it as a slap in the face and felt he had earned the right to take the shot (I don’t condone what he did I just think he gets a worse rap for it than he deserves)

  • lakernation

    Good letter Mr. SCOTTIE! Lets hope the Bulls can handle the second round Orlando or Boston….

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    Well….I don’t see no Scottie Pippen on this bulls team, so that 1994 comparison makes no sense.

  • thor

    ^Atl or Boston you mean.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    @Bt he still got in the hall of fame. Can’t be that bad of a rap.

  • CubicleWorker

    I would have rathered this be in video.. Al Pacino Any Given Sunday style..

  • Balls

    Scotty got that heart of a champion :P

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    Bt – Pip deserves the bad rap. There is NO excuse for refusing to take the floor with your fellow teammates because you felt disrespected because you don’t get the last shot. I know you’re not condoning it, but that one play was one of the most selfish and egotistical displays I have ever seen on any court. And this is coming from a huge Pip fan!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Alf

    jeez, the way this letter was crafted almost makes it sound as if Derrick was dead – not injured. a tad excessive.

    Brilliant letter- what you all moaning about??????

  • bike

    He could have shot straight to the point with ‘We couldn’t pull off a championship without MJ and neither can you guys without DRose but it’s important to feel good about yourselves. It’s important to act like you care when you know dam well it’s hopeless’.

  • AsadSaleh3

    With all due respect to Scottie, no, the Bulls aren’t the best team anymore. They play the best together perhaps, but without Rose, they’re just the Detroit Pistons of 2004 but two levels lower. I don’t know if it’s a good idea for Scottie to try to speak too much. After that comment about LeBron being better than Jordan last year, I think he should just sit courtside and watch. Don’t make any statements.

  • http://dodgers.com Joey E.

    Wow you guys are d-bags. The man takes time to write a heartfelt letter about his experiences and how they relate to the struggle his team is currently going through – and all you d-bags do is gripe about small points, missing the bigger picture. I’m not even a Bulls fan (but definitely a Scottie fan), and I think this is an awesome gesture.

  • AsadSaleh3

    No, not being d-bags. That Bulls team was better than this team in my opinion. Scottie was a top 50 player. There aren’t any great players on this Bulls team. Thibs is a great coach, but he’s not Phil Jackson. MJ retired, no one knew he would return a season later. Rose is just injured and will be out for a good while, but barring anything crazy in his rehabilitation, he’ll be back stronger and better than before. The loss of MJ was great because Jordan was the best player in the world, obviously. But this is different because MJ, while being as great as he was, wasn’t always the best teammate (the Steve Kerr punch) and wasn’t a Chicago native. Rose is loved by all of his teammates and he’s the hometown kid with the city on his back. It’s a different kind of blow not only to the team, but to the city. The looks on his teammates faces after he went down said a lot. Rose had just gotten back presumably healthy and the team had their championship aspirations dashed in the last minute of the 1st game of the Playoffs. Jordan retired before the season began.

  • http://theurbangriot.com The NUPE

    I don’t understand why people are bringing up stuff from so many years ago when Pippen was much younger and a lot less mature. None of that has anything to do with his letter and his message to todays team. I hope that he takes the time to address the team directly and not just through a letter, but I appreciate what he’s saying to the guys. To criticize a top 50 all time player for a single play/mistake all these years later – really? (smh).

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    Scottie has always been a lame to me.

  • AsadSaleh3

    Also, say what you want about Reggie Miller as an analyst, but when he talks about LeBron, remember who this man is. Remember Miller Time in the Garden. No problem in pressurized moments unlike LeBron. The main reasons he never won championships? Michael Jordan, Shaq and Kobe Bryant. What’s LeBron’s excuse? What dominant legendary force like an MJ, Shaq or Kobe has he faced in the past few seasons that has held him back? The reason people are wondering why LeBron hasn’t won yet is because there has been no player/team in his way. He showed signs of being able to take that Cavs team to the Finals without a second star in 2010 and he ended up quitting. And we all saw what he did last season in the Finals. This is his second season on the team that is the favorite to win. If they don’t win it this season, there is no excuse and no one to blame but themselves and a majority of the blame will be on LeBron whether he deserves it or not. For those reasons, I understand why Reggie said that LeBron doesn’t really need advice from Magic, Jordan, and Bird because he is the top guy on the top team. He just needs to get it done.

  • AsadSaleh3

    Magic had to compete with Bird, Bird had to compete with Magic, Jordan had to get by Magic. Who does LeBron have to get by?

  • Da-Meat_Hook

    Nupe, he was 29 years old with a ton of experience and 3 rings at that point. No one’s denying his greatness or his basketball IQ . . . just saying a lot of that letter is hypocritical to what he displayed during a defining moment when he was the “leader” on a team that needed him.

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    Wth Slam? Where are my comments?

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    I’ll keep posting until the moderators put down the haterade.

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    Jordan didn’t win his first chip until he was eight or nine seasons in. If Lebron wins this year he’ll be the same age as Jordan when he won his first. That’s a FACT. Individual players don’t win chips, TEAMS do. Magic never beat Bird alone. Bird never beat Magic alone. Kobe had Shaq. Shaq had Kobe. If an individual player only had to get past an individual player Lebron would have four rings. Lebron took a bum squad to the Finals. Jordan never took any of his bum squads to the Finals. He needed Pippen. Stop acting like Lebron is an underachiever. Reggie wouldn’t have a ring even if Jordan didn’t exist because he would never have been able to overcome Stockton and Malone by himself, or any other Western Conference opponent. Last season was the only season Lebron had a superior squad. He still had more Finals appearances than Jordan at the same age. This year is the year that counts the most. People have the dumbest arguments to discredit the Lebron’s achievements. I’m not even a LBJ fan and it was that easy to pick apart those stupid remarks.

  • AsadSaleh3

    LeBron had Wade and Bosh last year and they would have won if he had stepped up instead of shrinking from the moment. That’s really the bottom line here. Keep your comments about teammates and how many seasons it took Jordan. You cannot compare LeBron to Jordan. When is the last time the best player in the world left his team to join with another team that has on its roster the 2nd or 3rd best player in the world? LeBron’s Cavs team in 2010 were capable of winning had he decided to keep performing like he did in Game 3. We all watched him quit. LeBron and the Heat were favorites last season and if he had played at 80% of who he is, they would have won. Once again I’ll say, the comments about not doing it alone doesn’t work here. When you have Wade and Bosh with you, and you’re the best player in the league, you should not lose. Reggie wasn’t by himself. He had guys like Chris Mullin, Mark Jackson, Jalen Rose, and the Davis boys. This isn’t about LeBron’s career achievements. It’s about the fact that he legitimately had two opportunities to win championships and on both occasions, he blew it. Not because of who he was playing with but because of himself.

  • Da-Meat_Hook

    Asad, are you implying that Lebron’s Clev squad had a chance to beat that STACKED Spurs squad and Lebron blew it?!?

  • AsadSaleh3

    Notice I said the 2010 Cavs team, not the 2007 team. The 2010 team that lost to the Celtics who eventually lost to the Lakers in the Finals. Had LeBron played like he did in Game 3 for the rest of the series, they would have eliminated those Celtics easily.

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    You compared Lebron to Jordan. You can’t make the comparison to try to discredit him, then say others can’t when they pick apart your arguments. Should I even dignify your Cavs/Spurs remark with a reply? It’s too ridiculous to even suggest that the Cavs had a shot to beat the Spurs. ONCE AGAIN, last year was the only year Lebron had a better team. And if you think Reggie could beat the teams that came out of the West you simply don’t know what you’re talking about. Jordan, Shaq, Kobe, blah blah blah, etc: NONE of those guys took a team as weak as the 2010 Cavs to the Finals. Lebron playing at his best couldn’t even beat that Spurs team alone. To suggest it has to be a joke. No other player can beat a team like that on his own, and w’re supposed to take your opinion serious after you imply that Lebron should’ve been able to? Jordan didn’t make it until he had a guy who was arguably the best all-around player in the game. The only season you have to hold over Lebron’s head is last season. Anything else you’re saying is purely silly. Belaboring ONE point doesn’t negate the fact that you have to reach in order to make him seem like more of a failure than he really is. The whole picture tells a far clearer story that the spin you’re spouting on here.

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    Slam, again?

  • Da-Meat_Hook

    Fare enough, but did he really have the supporting cast to take out the Lakers as well? I dunno, I never thought there was enough talent on those Clev squads to win it all. Completely agree with you on Miami winning last year had Lebron played to his potential, though.

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    *2007 Cavs

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    Dudes hold this cat to a standard higher than even the greatest players of all-time, then try to spin facts when the facts contradict weak arguments SMH. Tell me how one can acknowledge that teams win chips, but one individual should be able to will his team to a championship with an inferior squad than their opponents.

  • everything

    @Asad stop talking about Lebron in a post about Scottie trying to motivate the Bulls. please.

  • AsadSaleh3

    @charliewinning I never said a word about the 07 Cavs against the Spurs in the Finals. I mentioned the 2010 Cavs. Learn how to read bro. It’s not reaching to say that last year the Heat should have won. It was less than 12 months ago. And it’s not reaching to say that the Cavs in 2010 should have gotten past the Celtics to meet a Magic team that wasn’t as good as those Celtics. Also, I never compared LeBron to Jordan. I compared Reggie as a pressure player to LeBron. Don’t know where you got the LeBron/Jordan comparison from. All I said was he had two opportunites and failed both times. The 07 Finals he was clearly overmatched, but once again, I never said anything about that team. Read carefully.
    @Da-Meat_Hook Watching that Cavs team destroy the Celtics in that Game 3 in Boston, they looked like they could beat anyone. LeBron was a beast on both sides of the ball, doing everything on the court. His teammates were hitting shots. He was aggressive from start to finish. Shaq could have kept Bynum busy. Jamison could have pulled Gasol from out of the lane. It would have been a close matchup at least. The only reason the Lakers won those Finals is because Kendrick Perkins got hurt leaving them short at the center spot. Those Cavs had enough big guys to throw at Bynum, Gasol and Odom.

  • AsadSaleh3

    @everything I wasn’t the first to talk about LeBron. An earlier comment was about Reggie Miller’s comments on LeBron last night. I merely followed up with my own remarks.
    @charliewinning There’s no need to “spin facts”. I only gave facts and you’re not smart enough to read properly. That’s on you. Last year’s Heat team wasn’t inferior to the Mavs. The 2010 Cavs wasn’t inferior to any team except possibly the Lakers if LeBron had continued to play the way he was playing before the infamous Game 5 disappearance. My main argument is people are on LeBron because he’s been the best player for a few seasons and for the past two seasons he has quit in the playoffs leaving most of us to wonder why the best player in the world has shied away when he should have stepped up. I don’t need to “spin facts” and those facts don’t contradict my argument at all because the argument isn’t weak at all as you say.

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    You need to learn how to read. I never said criticisms about last year were reaching. I said last year was the only legit year people like you could talk about, and even then he isn’t behind people like Jordan if you want to compare how long it took to win a chip. YOU were the one bringing up teammates and guys like Jordan, Bird, Magic, Shaq, etc. You even spoke about them like they won chips without fellow HOFs on their teams. If not to compare their situations and circumstances to Lebron, why even mention them? Reggie wasn’t winning a chip in his era. I don’t care how much of a “pressure player” he was. He didn’t have the back-up to get it done in the Finals like the rest of those guys. Even your 2010 example was dumb. Are you saying that Lebron and Co could’ve beaten the Lakers? Who did he have that was a match for Kobe/Pau? besides himself They were regular season winners just like Rose and the Bulls, who’ll learn about playoff disappointment so long as Rose is the only high caliber player on the team. None of his Cavs teams were built for chips.

  • http://slamonline.com charliewinning

    Me: “…last year was the only year Lebron had a better team.”… “The only season you have to hold over Lebron’s head is last season.” If you don’t understand what that means just say it. Clearly you don’t comprehend well if you say “Last year’s Heat team wasn’t inferior to the Mavs”.

  • AsadSaleh3

    @charliewinning No, the 2010 season is worth discussing. I never compared LeBron to Jordan, Shaq, Bird, or Magic. Reggie Miller talked about LeBron seeking out those guys. Pay attention son. I said the main reason Reggie didn’t win was because of Jordan, Shaq and Kobe. I asked what dominant force has LeBron faced since he’s been the best player in the league. Never compared him to anyone. Once again, all you have to do is read. It’s all there. The past four seasons or so, what great player has been in LeBron’s way? The Cavs lost to the Magic and Celtics. He moved to Miami and they lost to the Mavs last season. Not a single player on any of those teams were better than him. The only season he deserves a pass on is the 09 season when he lost to the Magic. He had way too much of a load to carry. You can’t say whether that Cavs team in 2010 was built for a championship or not because LeBron quit on them. We’ll never know. Our last good memory from that season is him going off on the Celtics in Game 3. That player was playing good enough to get his team to the Finals at least. Once there, there would have been no one on the Lakers who could even contain him if he played that way.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    smh. It’s simple, if LeBron wins a heap of titles between now and whenever he breaks down he’ll be right in the conversation. He has already accomplished more than Jordan at the age of 27, so what he does from here on out will determine his legacy. Who he had to beat or lose too are pretty much irrelevant, winning is winning and losing is losing. That’s all that matters in the end. At this stage in Jordan’s career he was experiencing a similar type if criticism about not being able too win. He was too much of a scorer and too selfish. LeBron just so happens to be the opposite.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Cosign nbk, but honestly, the whole decision thing will cast a shade over LeBron’s legacy 20 years from now. “He had to team up to win” will always be a prevalent (if not completely legitimate) argument. And hey Charlie, you sound like a 14 year old when you can’t directly address someone you’re arguing against. Just a tip.
    Lastly, stop criticizing Scottie the player. Taken within its own context, his letter was exceptionally well written and clearly demonstrated a love for both his team and the game. Sure, he messed up pretty bad in his youth, but give him credit for what he has done RIGHT NOW.

  • Justin G.

    cosign Caboose. Amen

  • everything

    @Asad “what great player has been in LeBron’s way?” Himself. AND a great team with a great defensive system and an engaging coach in doc rivers. 2010 Celtics was clearly better than the 2010 Cavs regardless of regular season records. KG totally ate up Antwan Jamison. Shaq wasnt good enough and was past his prime. Mo williams got himself shredded by rondo. So there. Its not just about great players winning championships. Its about great teams and systems and a coach who can adjust on the fly.

  • lakernation

    I guess the letter didn’t work.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    @Cabboose to be fair Scottie should have at the very least mentioned his refusal to come back in the game, seeing how he’s referencing the 1993-94 Bulls team sans MJ. He should have told those young Bulls how his selfish choice could have cost his team an important game 3 after starting the series down 0-2. The team should always comes first. Mentors do stuff like that, which is help those who aren’t as experienced avoid pitfalls and/or mistakes.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Bwahahahah!! Too true Charlie! I noticed that this fool practically won’t comment until nbk does. What the hell does a name on comment have to do with anything?lmaoo…Anyway, I kinda agree that Bron quit in 2010, but I also agree that he gets held to a higher standard than everybody else. It’s unfair but when you compare and contrast careers he’s not far behind most of the all-time greats. This year is a mandatory win year.

  • AsadSaleh3

    @everything Watch highlights of that game. Whatever defensive system the Celtics had, LeBron was destroying it in Game 3. He was unstoppable. He looked like he could carry that team to the Finals playing that way. Then he quit the series. The only player in his way was himself that season. Even with his teammates losing their matchups, he was playing out of his mind.
    @charliewinning The only child on here is you. You have no “pertinent” info yourself. Ever. There is a person who sounds dumb here, but it’s not Caboose. It’s you. Doesn’t even sound like you watch basketball and if you do, you can’t remember anything that actually happened. Don’t get mad at Caboose because you’re incapable of providing any factual information or analysis on what you may have watched.

  • 602Shorty

    Asad you sound emotional right now like he insulted your lover or something. I can’t knock dude for shutting you down on the Jordan, other players stuff but I agree with LBJ quitting vs the Celts. You sound angry for no reason. And I agree about Caboose. His comments are usually “hey nbk I agree” like he’s vying for his approval. When grown men on the internet feel the need to defend each other it’s…creepy at best.

Idiotic when it comes to basketball matters. Neither one of you ever has anything to say that sounds halfway smart when it comes to the game. I defend people who actually have a basis for anything they say unlike you two who are reckless with everything you say.

    @charliewinning It’s a good idea for you to barely comment on here seeing as how you sound completely ignorant when you do, but a great idea would be for you to stop altogether. Tell your partner in stupidity 602shorty to stop as well. Would be the best for all of us.

  • AsadSaleh3

    @charliewinning Scrolling over my comments yet you’ve been responding to them? That makes a lot of sense bro.

    Destroyed who? LMAO. Your strongest point was one I NEVER even argued, fool. You and Caboose got clowned because you both sound stupid. He made an irrelevant comment and got told to sit down and shutup. You got clowned because as usual you’re getting upset and I find it funny. You’re huffing and puffing behind your keyboard talking about your “duty defending anonymous posters” on a blog. I cannot tell you how amused I am right now. Everything you say gets used against you in your arguments and you’re emotional about that little lady.

  • AsadSaleh3

    @charliewinning You have no substance at all. Which is why you never stand a chance in any argument. You certainly never stood a chance against me. Complete stupidity at its finest.

  • 602Shorty

    Look how many pointless back to back comments. That’s pretty efiminate of you. My girl sometimes argues for the sake of arguing… when she’s pms’ing. “Please stop commenting” sounds like “Please leave me alone, you’re hurting my feelings and I don’t like it.
