Larry Bird and Scottie Pippen have been debated as the best small forwards in NBA history. Michael Jordan has praised Bird as the greatest wing player ever, but his former teammate Dennis Rodman believes Pippen was better due to his versatility and ability to revolutionize the point-forward position. Pippen's skills helped turn the Chicago Bulls into a championship team and even Jordan admits he wouldn't have won without him. Despite this, Bird is still considered a legend with incredible basketball IQ, scoring abilities and clutch performances that led the Celtics to three NBA championships in the 80s. LeBron James is also in the conversation, but Rodman still ranks Pippen above him.
