Every great player needs the “Robin” to his “Batman.” Fortunately for Michael Jordan, his “Robin” also happens to be one of the greatest players to ever play the game. Pippen was a monster on the defensive end. He possessed ability to guard multiple positions effectively. His unselfishness on offense also complemented Jordan well. Pippen mostly played within the flow of the offense. Rarely did you see him force anything on that side of the court. With that said, Pippen could score the basketball when called upon to do so.
