Bulls Hall-of-Famer Scottie Pippen joined "The Dan Patrick Show" to talk about the NBA, Michael Jordan, Derrick Rose's MVP chances and more.
Pippen said the game is so different from when he played because they dont allow defenses to get physical with the offense.
The game now is so offensively driven, Pippen said. Its so easy for an offensive player to keep his aggressiveness with the basketball player.
Pippen said Michael Jordan could average over 40 points per game in todays game. Pippen said that whatever the highest guy in the league was, Jordan could just do more if he wanted to. He also said Jordan could score 100 points in a game today.
Pippen talked about some of the incidents that happened with the Bulls. Some of them were portrayed as fights in practices, but Pippen maintains the word incident.
The Bulls star also agreed with Jordan about Rose being the best player in the league right now.
