Mind you, Pippen was playing for Portland at the time when he was asked about Stanley Roberts as a player and as a person.

Pippen did the same thing by throwing Charles Barkley under the bus when Pippen accused Barkley of being a fat man with no desire to win, when in reality, Barkley's 98-99 season was better than Pippen's. Barkley averaged 16.1 points, 12.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 36 minutes, so Barkley (even at less than full health) contributed more than Pippen's 14.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists even in 40 minutes.

So Pippen has no room to whine and complain about other people's faults when Pippen himself needed to look at his own faults when his constant trade requests got REALLY annoying, and he walked out on Chicago when Toni Kukoc was trusted to make the last shot in one of the 1994 playoff series games vs. New York.

Even a YouTuber by the name of Karceno4Life can tell you about what he thinks of Pippen as a player and as a person.

But then again, Pippen, almost anyone and their grandmothers can criticize Stanley Roberts for being a waste of talent. I have no issue with Stanley Roberts being called a waste of talent, the problem here is that it's coming from Pippen's mouth, and Pippen's the guy who has a history of throwing teammates, players and coaches under the bus when he's under pressure acting like a cat in heat.

And wasn't Stanley Roberts also teammates with Pippen and Barkley on that 1998-99 Houston Rockets team too?
