Scottie Pippen wasn't ready to hand anything to the Miami Heat, especially not the chance that they would eclipse the 1996 Bulls' 72-wins. He said that the Celtics were still the Eastern Conference's best team until the Heat prove otherwise. Miami and Boston meet in the season opener Oct. 26.

I think those guys’ biggest goal is to try and win a championship and not trying to win 72 games. But if Jeff Van Gundy wants to make a bet, I will bet him that they won’t break it. You can put a lot of great players together, but it’s about building chemistry. There’s been a lot of great teams put together, but that doesn’t really seal the deal. I think, me personally, Boston is still probably the best team in the East. Miami hasn’t proven themselves.
