How did you even come to this comparison, their games aren’t anything alike. Pippen might have had the best hands of anyone who played the game.

Not close to Pippen, but Siakam may be a skosh better than Jayson Tatum right now. However, Tatum is four years younger. Both should be All-Stars for years to come.

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


Maybe as scorers, overall offensively though they’re different. Pippen was a great passer and topped around a 7 offensive win share in his prime, Pascal isn’t near that yet.

Not sure why Tatum is being brought up but his RPM, PER, WS, Box, VORP, basically every advanced stat is currently better than Siakam so I’m not sure I would say he is currently better.

I mean, no he's not. But the comparison looks worse because Siakam only recently elevated his game to its current level, while Pippen benefits from a career's worth of hindsight. If Siakam played like this for another 10 years then it wouldn't be laughable. Still, I'd take Pippen in that scenario short of any significant improvement from Pascal.

Pippen was never a first option.

Just a real good second/third. =p

The similarities are there. If Siakam continues to improve his consistency with his shot, I don't see how you can't compare the two.

Siakam is already way better than Pippen ever was offensively. Defensively too hes getting there.

These bad hot takes tend to draw negative attention towards a player.

Literally nobody in this thread has said yes, this must be a troll thread.

However it could spark an interesting discussion. How would the 90's bulls do if you took out Pippen and inserted current day Siakam on the team? Would they still be good enough to win all the chips?

You do understand that he’s already a high end defensive player? Just ask Anthony Davis right about.now.

Anyways, we’re comparing a player in his 4th season to a hall of famer so the OP needs to pump the breaks a little bit.

I dont get how so many people believe in the raptors,they have zero to chance to win it all.

Nah. Siakam is better than Tatum right now -- https://stathead.com/basketball/pcm_finder.cgi?request=1&sum=0&player_id1_hint=Pascal+Siakam&player_id1_select=Pascal+Siakam&player_id1=siakapa01&idx=bbr__players&player_id2_hint=Jayson+Tatum&player_id2_select=Jayson+Tatum&player_id2=tatumja01&idx=bbr__players.

Even the Raptors will beat the Celtics out of the playoff run this year with Siakam leading the way.

I brought up Tatum because he's a good comparable to Siakam but like I said Tatum has the advantage in being four years younger. Tatum should have the better career if he remains healthy. However, the Raptors are clearly superior to the Celtics. Look at win share for Siakam over Tatum and that tells the story.

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


Pippen led the bulls to 55 - 27 record and lost in 2nd round the year he finished 3rd in MVP voting. Took him 38 mpg to put up 22, 8.7, 5.6. Thats in scotties 7th or 8th season.

In siakim just 4th season, 23.6, 7.5, 3.6 in 35 mpg and has the raps on pace to win a lot. Siakim has already proven to be the better and way more efficient scorer than scottie . In siakims 3rd year he put up 63 ts% a number that pippen can only dream of and also won the championship at a younger age with kawhi who is significantly worse than Jordan.

Obvioisly pippen is better defensively but based off what we have witnessed to say his ceiling isnt at least pippen is a lie.
