NBA fans love to name their all-time starting fives. Jordan or LeBron? Kobe or West? Shaq or Kareem?

The league's greatest player of all-time once named his, too.

In an interview with Playboy back in the early 1990s, Jordan revealed his all-time NBA lineup. 

"Me and Magic, Bird, Worthy, McHale or Malone, David Robinson or Abdul-Jabbar," Michael Jordan told Playboy.

As noted by Basketball Network, Jordan had some trouble with his frontcourt, as he named more than five players.

Still, a Magic, Jordan, Bird backcourt is quite the trio to work with.

Who would you put in your all-time starting five?
