Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone was on The Dan Patrick Show today and the sports talk host asked the Mailman who was on his all-time starting lineup to which he responded:
My all-time starting five: I gotta have Wilt Chamberlain as my center. I gotta have John Stockton as my point guard. I’m going to put LeBron James at my power forward position. I gotta put Oscar Robertson at my 2-guard. My other guy … I’m gonna shock the world. I have to put Scottie Pippen at the 3. … Scottie Pippen led the [Bulls] in every statistical category when he was there without Michael Jordan. That’s why I gotta put Scottie Pippen.”
Notice anyone missing? Michael Jordan perhaps? His Airness is widely acknowledged as the greatest basketball player of all time, so it’s expected that he’s in anyone’s starting five. I guess if Michael Jordan prevented me from winning a Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy I’d be slighting him any way I could too.
