Basically trouble is that I have pip-2.7 command in terminal but not pip. First thought was sudo port select --list pip will help, but it doesn't even has that group

Romans-iMac:~ holms$ sudo port select --list pip
Warning: Unable to get active selected version: The specified group 'pip' does not exist.
Error: The 'list' command failed: The specified group 'pip' does not exist.

You should be able to use port select for pip if you install

sudo port install py-pip


sudo port select pip pip27
