    Jordan Has a Worthy Defense for This Pick
    By Larry Stewart, Times Staff Writer
    June 11, 2006

    Michael Jordan, in an interview in the issue of Slam magazine that goes on sale Monday, is asked to name his ultimate starting five from his era.

    Although Jordan declines to accept the label as "greatest of all time," the assumption can be made that he would name himself the shooting guard. He names Magic Johnson the point guard — "without a doubt."

    His center is Hakeem Olajuwon, although he says he never saw Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in his prime.

    Jordan, requesting the use of a sixth man, says he would split Scottie Pippen and Larry Bird at small forward.

    Saying, "I'm a Carolina guy," Jordan names James Worthy his power forward.

    "Charles is going to be mad," Jordan says, referring to Charles Barkley, "but I know Charles never played defense."

    ahh man, that's pretty awesome. i'd like to know who his choice at SG after him would be, and i would also like every popular NBA player/person submit their top 5 or 12 or whatever and for those stats to be recorded and produced in a report that i can read.

    While it's very nice that he did that, i don't like the implied "honour" that has been attached to this, he'd be a moron if he didn't pick Hakeem for his team.

    True, but I do appreciate how he emphasized that it was Hakeem, by far. He didn't do that for the other selections.
