Charles Barkley Takes Kobe Over LeBron In Top 10 List

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Los Angeles LakersThis offseason has seen its fair share of ex-and-current NBA players share their Top 10 players of all time lists. They’ve been interesting because there isn’t a consensus on who should crack the list, and personal biases get in the way.

This time around, it’s Charles Barkely talking Top 10 of all time, and had a very interesting answer when asked where LeBron James is on his list, according to Sports Illustrated.

“[...] Those second five fluctuate, but who do I take off my top five? LeBron can get to No. 6 on my list, but here’s the thing that bothers me about the whole LeBron debate: I want to know why y’all killed Kobe Bryant! Y’all don’t even compare him to LeBron anymore. You are skipping him for LeBron and going right to Michael. I’m still going to take five [titles] over two. It makes me laugh with my friends — the media just kills Kobe Bryant. Like he’s dead! Five still is a lot more than two!”

Barkley’s sentiments are counter to what most believe in today’s NBA with pundits shifting their collective praise from Bryant to James — which is understandable considering the accomplishments and accolades that James has earned in the past few seasons.

Barkley, however, still believes that James has a ways to go before he’s willing to give the greatness nod to James over Bryant.
