Karl Malone Picks Scottie Pippen Over Michael Jordan for Dream Starting Five

According to Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone, the guy who tortured him in two consecutive NBA Finals (1997, 1998) wouldn’t make it onto The Mailman’s all-time starting lineup. Malone says he’d go with Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen instead, since Pip was a more versatile player. (Malone later did some light backtracking.) Per the Dan Patrick Show: “The Hall of Famer discusses a wide range of topics, including who he’d take between LeBron James and Michael Jordan and where he ranks himself among the great power forwards. He also picked his dream team and leaves off Jordan, taking Scottie Pippen instead.”
