Michael Jordan is widely considered the best basketball player of all time, especially here in Chicago.

But hall of famer Karl Malone has different ideas.

On the Dan Patrick Show Tuesday, Malone listed off his all-time starting five and Jordan was nowhere to be found.

Wilt Chamberlain came in at center, John Stockton at point guard, and LeBron James at power forward. Oscar Robertson made the cut at shooting guard and there was a Bulls player on the list, though it wasn't Jordan.

Malone dubbed Scottie Pippen as the final player on his starting five and while explaining his reasoning, finally mentioned Jordan's name, but only in passing.

"Scottie Pippen led the team in every statistical category when he was there without Michael Jordan," Malone said, while also admitting he has a man-crush on Pippen.
