Charles Barkley: Kobe not in conversation with Jordan


Charles Barkley joined the show to talk about the big stories in the NBA. Here are some of his takes:

-- Barkley had interesting comments on Kobe Bryant's penchant for last-second shots. He said that some of Kobe Bryant's game-winners are lucky. What are you going to do when he hits a 20-foot fade-away jumper? Barkley said that the Raptors played good defense against Bryant earlier this week but he hit the game-winner any way.

Barkley said that Bryant isn't in the conversation with Michael Jordan as the greatest ever. Barkley said that the Lakers "play with no sense of urgency" and only won the title because they had more talent then everyone else. Barkley said that Bryant's Lakers wouldn't have a chance against the great Bulls teams.

-- Barkley has been very impressed with the Dallas Mavericks. "They're in the conversation with the Denver Nuggets against the Lakers," Barkley said. "Clearly the Lakers are the favorite. But Denver and Dallas are right there."

-- Barkley said he has a lot of love for Allen Iverson. "I pull for Allen Iverson because I have great respect for him as a player," Barkley said. But he doesn't feel bad for guys who blow their money: "We all make a lot of money. But if at the end of the day, you're broke. That' s not cool. Because you only hit the lottery once in your life."

-- Barkley said he has no inside information on Tiger Woods. "If he's spending time with Hank [Haney], I'm a.ssuming he's going to be back for the Masters."

Dan asked who Barkley would choose -- Tiger on Sunday or Michael Jordan playing in a Game 7. Barkley said Jordan, but he said they're both cut out of the same cloth. "I've never met two guys who wanted to win more than those two," Barkley said. "I think everybody wants to win. But I think those two guys ... they're willingness to go to another level ... they go to places other players can't go."

-- Barkley said he'll go toe-to-toe with Jordan. "He's got an aggressive personality," Barkley said. "I'm one of the few people who will f!ght with him. I know I've gotten to him when he brings up the championships."

To each his own.

...If Kobe's game winners are lucky then everybody's game winners are lucky. Still trying to figure out what he meant by that.

He's entitled to his opinion. After 25+ game winners at what point does it stop being luck?

I agree with the first sentence.

The last sentence is completely false though. Whether or not you think Kobe can match Jordan, that statement is waaaaaay off.

He's saying the Bulls would beat them because they played with urgency, executed better, had k!ller instinct and they obviously have the GOAT. Like he said the Lakers won last year because they are stacked and had more talent than anyone, not because they took it to another level or played extremely well.

Jordan is Jordan

Kobe is Kobe

Jordan set the bar too high

1 for pretty much putting chicago on the map

2. retiring then come back to win

3. 2 3peats

4 all the awards and accolades


Kobe will get his shine tho when he retires they there will be someone new coming in the game comparing him to him

Either way, if the answer was yeah, he would sound like he's knocking.

It's not necessarily luck. It's a good shooter getting the last shot. He misses some, he makes some. At the end of the day it is still a shot.
