Peak Pippen finished 3rd in MVP voting.

If/when Siakim accomplishes that, then yeah you can consider him as good.

Wait, what? Even as a raptors fan, can't disrespect Pippen like that. He is improving though and maybe one day he can if he manages to improve on both his offense and put more effort into his defense to match Pippen's intensity on that end as well.

Is Siakam a hall of famer? Probably not (yet). Great player though.

Siakim's ceiling is somewhere in Iggy's stratosphere.

There are games already being played. I could excuse OP for making this thread after the shut down but right now?!

I doubt Siakam has the overall career that Pippen had and defensively he’s nowhere close.

Offensively though there comparable and Based on his trajectory will probably be better on that end.

Is Siakam as good as a guy who was a legit MVP candidate when MJ retired?
