Colin Cowherd says MJ’s legacy is nothing without Jackson, Pippen

MJ’s Legacy without Phil & Pippen???

A whole lot of mediocrity

Colin Cowherd has a new hot take that Sports Twitter is NOT reacting to well at all – and that entails Michael Jordan … not really being that big without some key pieces.
The FS1 broadcaster jumped on its own podcast network, Volumethis week to talk NBA GOAT … and argue that MJ’s legacy and success is largely tied to two specific guys who helped him achieve the status he enjoys — Phil Jackson and Scottie Pippen.

“Take out Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson, this whole Michael Jordan mythology is pretty much just that”

@ColinCowherd about MJ’s reality

It doesn’t sound like a wild opinion, but the way CC puts it is a little tougher and cold-blooded, in his typical matter-of-fact style. Here’s how he put things … “So he tried baseball. He failed. He tried ownership, he was terrible. He tried the Wizards, it bombed.”
Adds Cowherd: “Everybody understands, take out Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson — this whole Michael Jordan mythology is kind of just that.” He goes on to say that MJ has always been a bit of a selfish player and guy and has never been good at building community.
Colin concludes by saying that Michael has been really good at building wealth for himself, noting that that’s fine… and that it’s just a reality of who he is. That greater coherence of his convo here has to do with reports that MJ wants to sell his majority stake in the Hornets.
As for how the internet is taking this POV… not great. Users of the bird app are a little upset with him memes and jokessuggesting that Colin downplays Mike’s individual greatness.

We’re sure Colin, as usual, will have more to say on the subject.
