Post#1 Rank Scottie Pippen's top 5 seasons

Personally, I find Pippen to be one of the most eerily consistent players, like ever. You know he's going to be a top 2 perimeter defender in the league, give you 18-20 ppg, 6-8 rpg and 5-6 apg and there's hardly any variation. Ranking his seasons is hard, but I'd go:

1. '92
2. '94
3. '95
4. '91
5. '97

'96 was a CRAZY regular season but his playoffs were a bit lacking, not sure if I can rank it that high.

Thoughts?

Id say 1994 is his best season, because of he what was able to accomplish and prove considering Jordan had retired prior to the start of the season and many people though that team would sink. I think they overachieved, winning 55 games and one controversial call away from reaching the ECF.

1995 is a similar season for him, he was slightly better stats-wise (one of the few players in history to lead his team in every major statistic), but the team was worse as a whole, so it doesnt really say Pippen was a worse player, its just that they lost Grant and he had to produce a bit more to compensate that.

1996 was one of the two years he ended up top-5 in the MVP voting (5th overall and 3rd overall in 1994). And 1992 was a great season also, but I think those Bulls were using more Jordan in the first three-peat than in the second three-peat.

Id rank it like this:

1. 1994
2. 1996
3. 1995
4. 1992
5. 1991
