Re: Barkley: I'm better than Malone
Barkley was more talented than Malone but I don't think he was better unless you want to completely ignore intangibles, work-ethic, teammate, etc. If Barkley did work as hard as Malone and was as good of a teammate Malone and so on, he probably wouldn't just be better than Malone, he would probably be better than Duncan.
I'll take Malone though due to superior longevity, superior defense, and superior intangibles (much superior here).
Which I forgot to say, I find it hilarious how he forgot to add that Malone was a much better defender than he was.
