Michael who?

Former Chicago Bulls great Scottie PippenMichael Jordan’s sidekick during the team’s 1990s championships – pokes fun at Jordan in a new Foot Locker commercial.

The commercial, released online Tuesday, features NBA icon Charles Barkley speaking to current Rockets star James Harden at a party, giving Harden advice.

“All the greats have short memories,” Barkley advises Harden.

So, all of those bad games?

“Never had a bad game,” Barkley says.

His nickname as the “Round Mound of Rebound?” Nope. Throwing that guy through a window?

“I’m a pacifist,” Barkley says.

To prove his point, Barkley calls to Pippen, explaining that Pippen understands the need for forgetfulness.

“I sure do. And I’m the greatest Chicago Bull of all-time,” Pippen says.

Pippen was among the greatest Bulls of all-time. The small forward helped Chicago win six championships and scored 18,940 career points. He earned two Olympic gold medals and was enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. But if memory serves correctly, that Jordan guy was pretty good, too.
