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.

Doug McDermott, Kyle Korver return to Creighton for NBA preseason game

Doug McDermott, Kyle Korver return to Creighton for NBA preseason game

Competing in Nebraska may have been foreign for most Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks players, but Doug McDermott and Kyle Korver were right at home. 

The veterans, who both starred at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., returned to their college stomping grounds for NBA preseason action Thursday night. Korver's Hawks got the best of McDermott's Bulls, 97-81, on Creighton's home floor.

Both had illustrious careers for the Blue Jays basketball squad. McDermott, who graduated in 2014, won the Wooden Award his senior season and is the all-time leading scorer. Korver, as you may have guessed, holds the school record for most three-pointers made. Fans at Thursday's game got a flashback from these glory days, as both logged significant minutes and put up offensive numbers.

Afterwards, McDermott thanked the Omaha faithful via Twitter. 


With the loss, the Bulls' preseason ends with a record of 3-4. They open regular season play on Oct. 27 against the Boston Celtics.
