Charles Barkley had an extraordinarily NBA career, with multiple league awards and all-star appearances.

However, Barkley made many bad decisions throughout his 16 year NBA career, and he never won a NBA title.

Currently, Barkley is an analyst for TNT and he is known for his bold statements and predictions.

In the latest episode on “Inside the NBA” Sir Charles gave his take on Kobe Bryant’s place in NBA History.

Originally, Barkley said Kobe was one of the top ten best players in NBA History. However, he took back his statement and said Kobe Bryant was one of the top five greatest players in league history.

Charles Barkley believed Kobe was better than both Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

But after a debate between Barkley and Kenny Smith over commercial break, Charles changed his mind once again— he placed Kobe sixth on his all-time list after Abdul-Jabbar.
