Tại sao Scottie Pippen ghét Dennis Rodman mặc dù cùng đồng đội với Michael Jordan?

Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, and Michael Jordan formed one of the most iconic trios in NBA history, winning three consecutive championships from 1996 to 1998. While they were a force on the court, there were often tensions off the court between the three. When the Chicago Bulls acquired Dennis Rodman, Michael Jordan had just returned to the NBA after a brief retirement. At the time, Jordan and Pippen had already won their first three NBA championships from 1991 to 1993. The addition of Rodman to the roster added to their arsenal, and the three were unstoppable on the court. However, Rodman and Pippen initially had a rocky relationship. Pippen was said to not like Rodman off the court, and the two didn’t get along. So what exactly happened between Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen that led to a heated altercation outside of court and ultimately strained their relationship? In their first season together with the Bulls, Scottie Pippen didn’t speak to Rodman for six consecutive months. Despite being forced by head coach Phil Jackson to sit down and figure out their differences, Pippen wasn’t interested in befriending him. The reason behind Pippen’s dislike for Rodman stemmed from their Eastern Conference Finals matchup when the Bulls faced the Pistons. Rodman, a key player for the Detroit Pistons, had some rough plays on defense against Jordan and Pippen. One such action, often seen as intentional, left Scottie Pippen injured and requiring six stitches. Shocked by his antics, Pippen didn’t have good intentions towards his opponent. Rodman had no idea that one day he would be playing with Jordan and Pippen. Fortunately for the Bulls, the Jordan-Rodman-Pippen trio worked like magic as they defeated one team after another. Their amazing performances on the court eventually helped ease the tension between Rodman and Pippen, and all three became good friends off the court as well. Despite initially being skeptical of Rodman’s antics, Scottie Pippen recognized his passion for the game. Pippen continuously praised his excellent defensive play and expressed admiration for the player. The way Pippen and Rodman put their differences aside and played their best game on the court is a true example of professionalism in sports. The Jordan-Rodman-Pippen trio will continue to make history for the Bulls, and this wouldn’t have been possible if Pippen and Rodman let their differences off the court affect their gameplay.
