Yes, but he isn't better overall.

Tough. Both were MVP calibre players. Both were top PF's in their primes. Both went on a contending run, but with KG finally winning one in Boston. KG has the edge defensively, but I feel Chuck has the edge offensively. He was more versatile, and KG tended to rely on the face up mid range game and didn't work down on the block as much as he could. Both are great passing bigs, and both very versatile players.

I'd take Barkley though.

Charles Barkley wins this easily. Do any of y'all remember the bad teams that KG played on? Barkley never allowed that crap to happen........I love KG as a player, but the only reason why this comparison is even debatable is because KG didn't face Hakeem's Rockets and Jordan's bulls.

KG's "big three mix" worked out, while Barkley's "big three mix" was taken out by one of the alltime clutch shots of John Stockton......end of story.

Barkley > Garnett.

+ Barkley backed his bark up and wasn't a fake tough guy like Garnett is....sorry Garnett fans, but that's also the truth. Never saw Barkley hounding PGs, just saw him trying to throw blows with Shaq Diesel...he was a legit "tough guy", not a fake ass poser.

I agree that Barkley was better over all, but KG aint no fake tough guy, he could **** somebody up.

Chuck hands down.

KG is symbolic for today's player.

Tall, athletic, multi faceted, "acts" tough.

Chuck....

Hard working, well rounded, also has a nice versatile game, underrated athleticism, but "IS" tough.

I think that Chuck would beat the shyt out of KG in a fight, and would dominate him in a game.

KG seems like the type that would talk trash all day, telling you how he's gonna beat you up, but didn't do anything.

Chuck is the type of dude that you'd tell, "go hit him" and his chubby ass would go stomp him out just for fun or a donut.
