Finally, one of the Chicago Bulls‘ former stars have responded to Kenny Smith. During a radio appearance, Smith stated his belief that even if Michael Jordan wasn’t out of the league in 1994, the Houston Rockets were better than Chicago. Houston won a title in 1994 by beating the New York Knicks in the Finals in seven games.
It was a bold statement for Smith to make, as Chicago was coming off of a three-peat and was still really good even though Jordan was out of the league. The Bulls went 55-27 and were led by Scottie Pippen, who was fantastic – 22 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 2.9 steals per game.
Fortunately for hoops fans, Pippen got the chance to respond to this assertions on The Jump on Tuesday. What follows is a clip of Scottie Pippen basically calling out Kenny Smith. He points at the camera and everything. It rules.
