Doug you definitely have a point, but have you compared the actual rules in place during Jordan's time and current rules, as Pippen referred to? That's what Pippen started his argument off with, and I'm not going to spend half an hour researching/analyzing it but wouldn't you agree that the rules of the game regarding defense have significantly changed, as Pippen referred to? And would this not be significant enough to make the statement that you can't fairly compare the two?

Sure, Pippen's bias is obvious, and he maybe takes it too far, but his base statement I believe is valid.
