SJ - June 25, 2021

Scottie Pippen knows how to promote.  He did an interview with GQ to promote his new bourbon "Digits" and decided to take shots at Kevin Durant and Charles Barkley.

Pippen criticized KD for not knowing how to play team basketball.  That ended up backfiring when KD took to social media and buried the Bulls legend.

It turned out the KD criticism wasn't the only shot Pippen took during the interview.  He also accused Barkley of being fake tough.

From Larry Brown Sports:

“I never apologized to him, but I’ll tell you what: he only got arrested for throwing some little white guys out of a window. I ain’t never seen him fight a black man unless there were referees around. He plays his role like he’s tough. I don’t know nobody he done whooped. Go back and check his record,” Pippen said.

“Did I apologize to him? I told him to get me the he– out of there. That’s what I recall.”

This version of Scottie is much better than the quiet sidekick.  Sure he's going to take some Ls, but swinging wildly at folks to promote your booze is where it's at.
