7. Scottie Pippen - 19.6 

Scottie Pippen is by far the biggest name on this list so far. Pippen is a Hall of Famer with accolades galore, most of which came with the Bulls.

Pippen is a seven-time All-Star, a six-time NBA champion, and has made seven All-NBA teams. He also made 10 all-defensive teams. On top of these accolades, he was named to the NBA’s top 75 players of all time list. 

Pippen was a defensive monster, and the perfect pairing to Michael Jordan. He played a significant role in the team’s success, winning all of the Bulls’ championships. Jordan got most of the credit, but people claim that he couldn’t have done it without Pippen. 

Not only did Pippen average 2.1 steals per game over his Bulls career, but he averaged over 17 PPG as well. Pippen was an incredible player on both sides of the ball, but he struggled shooting the three and hitting free throws. His lack of efficiency likely hurt his PER, and is why he’s so low on the list.
