Scottie Pippen Critical Of Jimmy Butler On ESPN's 'The Jump'

The former Bulls' star was critical of Butler.

Scottie Pippen didn't hold back when he was talking about Jimmy Butler today.

The former Chicago Bulls' star questioned Butler's leadership and said he was disrespectful to coaches when asked about him on ESPN's The Jump today.

Pippen's comments are somewhat controversial, considering they come after Chicago traded him. Some think Pippen is just defending the franchise he's close to at a time when many are critical of what the Bulls got in return for Butler.

Here are his full comments:

Pippen is actually on Chicago's payroll as a "Senior Advisor."

That doesn't make what he's saying about Butler untrue, but it does make you question it a bit.
