Doug Gottlieb: “All This Does Is Expose Scottie Pippen As A Terrible Teammate”

The Fox Sports Radio host minced no words in his criticism of the former-Chicago Bulls forward.

Scottie Pippen made some blistering headlines on The Dan Patrick Show Monday morning, and Doug Gottlieb isn’t giving the Basketball Hall of Famer a free pass.

Pippen called Phill Jackson a racist on Patrick’s show for how he handled the final moments of the Bulls 1994 playoff loss that saw one of the final shots called for rookie forward Toni Kukoc.

“Putting somebody who treats people fairly in that circle and doing it in a huge public forum is almost as bad as the act of racism itself,” Gottlieb declared on The Doug Gottlieb Show. “Scottie sounds like an idiot. He just does.”

This latest headline from Pippen has people wondering if it’s all to promote his new bourbon and sell his memoir, which debuts in November. Gottlieb poked various holes in Pippen’s argument for why Jackson is a racist. 

“If we wanna paint the context of the shot and the play,” Gottlieb explained. “Forget the point that the ball went in the basket right. Phil called the play, got the ball to Toni. Toni made the shot. We’re not even mentioning that. Here’s the other part that’s not mentioned. The Bulls had a four-point lead; they had the ball two straight times before that time out. You know who shot the ball? That would be Scottie Pippen. Both were terrible shots, and neither went in, but that’s beside the point.”

Gottlieb looks at this as an even bigger reason to respect Michael Jordan, who missed that playoff run to pursue a baseball career. 

“All this does is expose Scottie Pippen as a terrible teammate,” Gottlieb said. “And not accountable for his own actions, which is also a bad teammate. It makes me think even more of Michael Jordan and even less of Scottie Pippen.”

Gottlieb concluded his point by hammering home how “staining” being deemed a racist is. One of Jackson’s former players Robert Horry backed his old coach this week.

“I’ve played for Phil. I don’t think Phil is racist,” Horry said Wednesday on his “Big Shot Bob Pod” podcast. “He’s said some stuff before that kind of, I had to check him on it. For me, I don’t think he’s racist.”

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
