Scottie Pippen, 6-time champion and Robin to Michael Jordan’s Batman during the Chicago Bulls’ reign in the 1990s, acknowledged on a cable-TV sports show that he was a willing sidekick in his heyday because somebody on his team thrived better in high-stakes situations.
“I’m not afraid to say that I don’t have clutch genes. I played with a guy who took all the clutch genes,” Pippen said on the basketball TV program “The Jump” on Wednesday.”
“It was a relationship that Michael and I had. It was a relationship built that I knew where I wanted the ball at the end of the game, and I knew who I wanted the ball at the end of the game.”

Anybody who saw Jordan in his prime won’t argue with Pippen here. <LINK IN HIS PRIME: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgHVolgQ8uM>
Every generation of fans is protective of the player they saw growing up — Larry Bird and Magic Johnson in the 1980s, Jordan and Reggie Miller in the 1990s, Kobe Bryant and Ray Allen in the 2000s and LeBron James and Steph Curry in the 2010s.
In your opinion, when the score is tied and the game is on the line, which player do you want taking the last shot?
