Does anybody even realize that Sir Charles is just talking about Barkley in his prime? If being dominant only your prime means everything then that would mean that Grant Hill could be a Top 5 small forward of all-time and Penny Hardaway could be a Top 5 guard of all-time.

I will say this though as a Rocket fan, Hakeem never had trouble checking Barkley, while Malone would usually end up giving Hakeem trouble. That is one of the few reasons why we got Barkley in Houston, we wanted to win it all and have Karl Malone contained. We failed year after year sadly.

Man People forge to Easily....

You should check out Barkley before he went to Houston before his knee injuries and back injures of 1994-95 (he was set to retire that season). He forced Robinson and Hakeem out of the center position many times to guard him.

Malone was owned by Barkley every time from 1985 to 1995...Malone rarely wanted to even guard him before 1996 to difficult to stop: ballhandling, potence, quickness, spins, speed and leap for Rebounds....infact mostly afraid of fouling out every time. Most teams had to put 3 players (SFs-PFs-Cs) rotating on guarding Charles those days.

As Walton said in 1997 : "Isn`t Strange to see Malone outplaying Barkley? Just a couple of years ago and back in 1993, Barkley would Dominate Malone Ever Time"

*Funny People Forget Easily when Its Convinent to Them ....but we all know why (Barkley most hated and envied player of his era).....

No other player had more defensive rotations than Barkley in order to keep the team from fouling out

When Barkley went to Houston as a Role Player he couldn`t even move or ofcourse leap like before and in 1999 he played the hardest against the Lakers while other players did`t care ofcourse they had won their champioship....

Get Real Barkley owned everyone in his Prime...Unmatched of any PF when healthy.
