Jalen Rose on John Salley saying Pippen was better than MJ: "We gotta drug test John"

In one of his recent interviews for VladTV, John Salley said he believes Scottie Pippen was more skilled as a basketball player than Michael Jordan. Salley played against the Bulls several times in the playoffs as a member of the Detroit Pistons but was later on in his career their teammate during the 1995/96. He got to know both Jordan and Pippen as rivals and later on as teammates which give him a great overview and insight into their skillset.

"The funny thing is, Scottie is more skilled than all of them. Scottie Pippen is probably the most skilled player I ever played with."

In a reaction to that video of Salley saying Pippen is more skilled than Jordan, another ex-NBA player Jalen Rose jokingly said Salley needs to be drug tested. However, he did bring a very interesting point why Salley chose Pippen over Jordan and it was because deep down inside he is still apart of the "Bad Boys" group which didn't like Jordan because of obvious reason.

Deep down in his heart, if you ask him what team do you identify with the most in your career, he'll say 'The Bad Boys.' So it's only right for him to feel that way about MJ, he can't help it."
