'90s Highlights

Scottie mostly played second fiddle to Jordan and wasn't appreciated as much as he is now. He took pride in his defense and played it at an all-time level. He was a great scorer too. Mostly a slasher, once Pip developed a jumper, it was a wrap. The Bulls dominated the '90s, winning six titles. Scottie was a mainstay on the NBA's All-Defensive team and was a perennial All-Star. And when Jordan retired, Scottie proved to be a first option, but still needed Mike to get to that next level; only reaching the second round the year Mike retired. Scottie is a member of the Hall of Fame and the Dream Team. Not bad for a "sidekick."
