Karl Malone Michael Jordan

I can understand Malone being salty because Jordan is the main reason he is ringless now, but at least he tries to explain why he leaves Jordan off his list and includes Scottie Pippen.

Here is what he had to say on the Dan Patrick Show.

During an interview with “The Dan Patrick Show” on Monday, Malone spoke about LeBron James and some of the greatest players who have ever played the game. When asked to name his all-time starting five, Malone took John Stockton and Oscar Robertson as his guards, Wilt Chamberlain at center, LeBron at power forward and Scottie Pippen at small forward. Pippen and no Jordan — really?

“Scottie Pippen led the team in every statistical category while he was there without Michael Jordan,” Malone explained. “That’s why I have to put him there. So now you know.”

The Bulls did have a 55 game winning season when Jordan was out trying to be Bo Jackson. Stockton and Robertson were both point guards, so Malone on purpose left Jordan out, but I understand why.

    Mailman obviously doesn’t deliver anymore, and never did (a championship to Utah, that is).
