Michael Jordan has been sensationally accused of “ruining” basketball by his former Chicago Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen in the latest twist of their war of words.

Following the release of Jordan’s hit documentary ‘The Last Dance’ on Netflix, the relationship between the two NBA legends has dramatically soured.

Pippen has been accused of being unhappy with the way he was portrayed on the series, and he hasn’t held back since taking aim at the all-time great Jordan.

And now, with Pippen’s new memoir Unguarded hitting shelves, his latest attack, which kills the superstar’s reputation, has been widely posted online.

The excerpt read: ‘I can go so far as to say that Mike ruined basketball.

“In the 80s, in the playgrounds, everyone moved the ball, they passed to help the team. That stopped in the 90s.

The kids wanted to be “like Mike.” Well, Mike didn’t want to pass, he didn’t want to rebound or defend the best player. He wanted everything to be done for him.

“That’s why I always believed that LeBron James was the best player this game had ever seen – he does everything and embodies what the game is really about.”

During ‘The Last Dance’, Jordan referred to Pippen as ‘his best teammate of all time’. Although the label is apparently good-natured, the latter has objected to it.

“That’s what’s special about playing for the Bulls – the camaraderie we established with each other, not that we felt blessed to be on the same team with the immortal Michael Jordan,” Pippen wrote.

“I was a much better teammate than Michael ever was. Ask anyone who played with the two of us. He was always there with a pat on the back or a word of encouragement, especially after he put someone down for one reason or another.

“I helped others to believe and stop doubting themselves.”

His withering take on Jordan has also diverted Pippen’s attention from him in the debate over who is the greatest basketball player of all time.

“Michael was determined to show the current generation of fans that he was bigger than life in his day, and even bigger than LeBron James, the player many consider their equal, if not superior,” said Pippen, via GQ.

“ They glorified Michael Jordan without giving enough praise to me and my proud teammates.

Even in the second episode, which focused for a time on my difficult upbringing and unlikely path to the NBA, the narrative returned to MJ and his determination to win.

‘It was just an accessory. His “best teammate of all time” called me. He couldn’t have been more condescending if he had tried.

Eleven-time NBA All-Star Charles Barkley believes that Pippen’s recent forays into Jordan are simply an attempt to trade copies of his autobiography.

“Scottie’s just trying to sell books,” Barkley said on The Dan Patrick Show.

‘I don’t think he’s worried about relationships in the future, friendships in the future. I think he’s just trying to sell books. ‘
