“I thought the lanes opened up when Michael Jordan used to drive,” said Scottie Pippen to Bulls.com about when he saw President Obama drive the lane during his traditional Election Day pick-up game Tuesday. “I used to be like, ‘Wow.’ But when I saw the president drive, I thought they were bringing the whole motorcade through the lane it was so wide.”

“We kind of blew them out.  It should have been worse, but we started messing around at the end. The game was close for a while, but in the third quarter, we opened it up. They tried to get back in it in the fourth, but we kept expanding the lead. It was a good game, fun and competitive.  “He’s not an overly aggressive player, but he takes what the defense gives him.  He’s got a smooth game. He probably used to be a little more aggressive, but obviously, he doesn’t want to get hurt.”

Keep in mind that Pippen has often been perceived as delusional when comparing players to Michael Jordan.  Last year, Pippen also said that LeBron James was on Jordan’s level.

“Don’t get me wrong, MJ was and is the greatest,” said Pippen via his Twitter account last May.  “But LeBron could by all means get to his level someday.  Every NBA generation has a new set of stars and LeBron is there as the best all around player in the game.”
