Not to mention MJ was THE best player in NBA history IMO. Phil gets a lot of credit but his history of players is off the charts. Also, truly believe Phil was nothing without Tex Winter. Agree with your physical comparison between Pippen and Gay though. Actually believe Gay scores more easily but Scottie is Top 50 all-time. Not sure Gay is even Top 50 in the current league.
Yeah, I just focused on the D since he suggested Casey's defensive mindset is a reason he should be replaced. You need a really high level of talent to run the triangle, and then a bunch of really smart role players. We have a lot of young, inexperienced players, and it's questionable if Gay is even a Pippen level talent...probably a better scorer, but Pippen was all over the place. The triangle would likely be a disaster.
