Dennis Rodman’s NSFW message to Kevin Durant regarding Scottie Pippen

While appearing on ESPN program “The Jump” to promote his “30 for 30” autobiographical documentary, NBA legendary forward Dennis Rodman dissed new Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant while defending his former Chicago Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen.

“Scottie Pippen is probably the innovator of the point forward. I love Magic [Johnson], I love [Larry] Bird, I love [Clyde] Drexler. I love all these guys, but I want the world to know, this guy right here: smooth,” Rodman said, via Nick Friar of USA Today.

“Kevin Durant, kiss his [expletive].”

Durant, 30, is a two-time NBA champion, former league MVP, 10-time All-Star, and four-time scoring champion. He surprisingly — for some — joined former USA Basketball teammates Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan in signing as free agents with the Nets in the past offseason.

While Durant is a multi-level scoring threat, he also presents a real challenge handling the ball, too, with an excellent awareness to set up teammates for scoring opportunities.

Despite Durant’s multiple accomplishments through his unfinished professional career, the Hall of Famer Rodman felt the need to throw him under the bus while explaining how Pippen — sitting next to his Bulls teammate on “The Jump” — deserves more praise.

Dennis Rodman won three titles with Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan and the Phil Jackson-coached Bulls from 1996 to 1998 after being a part of the Detroit Pistons’ back-to-back championships in 1989 and 1990.
