Scottie Pippen has played down talk of tensions between himself and former team-mate Michael Jordan following the release of the 'Last Dance' documentary about their Chicago Bulls' dynasty.

Pippen was labeled "selfish" by Jordan in the documentary about the successful 1990s Bulls outfit which won six NBA titles, and Jordan implied Pippen's migraine headache in the Eastern Conference championship game against the Detroit Pistons was overblown.

Pippen, now 54, told ESPN on Tuesday that he has talked to Jordan since the documentary and that all is now well.

"Why would I be offended by anything that happened 30 years ago," he said.

"I wasn't upset about it."

Team-mates rushed to Pippen's defense after multiple episodes of the documentary. But he said he was never as offended as reports implied.

"It didn't bother me at all," he said.

"It was an opportunity for our younger generation that hadn't seen or knew anything about basketball in the '90s."

Pippen was a seven-time All-Star and won six NBA championships with Jordan and the Bulls.
