Didn't Charles say this was the best game he played?

Brilliant performance.

One of many unbelievable games that run. He had 43/15/10 just 2 games earlier. He was incredible in the Spurs series too. He played about as well as you can play in game 2. Had 35 points, 10 rebounds, 7 steals and 3 blocks on 12/18 shooting in 35 minutes, and it's the type of game where he was doing absolutely whatever he wanted, and could've dropped 50+ had he pushed it and looked to get his and see how many he could get. Then he puts up 19 in the 4th quarter in game 5 to finish with 36/12/3 on 11/16 shooting, and then decides that 28 points and 21 rebounds plus the series-winning shot over David Robinson is a good encore for game 6. Those were some of my favorite Barkley games to watch.

Also had 43/13/4 on 16/26 shooting in game 2 of the finals and 32/12/10 in game 4 of the finals.

Charles was hungry for a title that year, it didn't happen obviously, but he was killing it. That was the only contending team he had in his prime before injuries and age took away a bit from his game, and the first legitimate contender he was on since his rookie year considering Moses was injured in '86.

Barkley was probably the greatest physical talent(including skills) of any power forward all time. I kind agree with Pippen in the sense that Barkley's weakness came with the mental side of the game. I think people on this board drastically underestimate how much one player's leadership/will to win can affect the will/abilities of the players around him, and ultimately their success as a team.

Malone vs Barkley is a battle of longevity vs dominant prime. It can go either way depending on what you value more. Personally, I tend to weigh how good a player was in his prime over longevity. That's why I have Barkley over Malone.

Barkley from 88-93 was a monster on the boards and on the offensive end. Malone's prime, although great, never really reached those levels.

They may have beat the Bulls if Cedric Ceballos played in that series. They certainly would of had a better shot.

True...but Malone wasn`t as Skilled as Barkley and As Player he Also Wasn`t Clutch...That is Why He Could Never Deliver Monster Games in the Play-Offs. He was Dependant On a System of Score with Stockton. Both Made Each Other Better.

Barkley Could Do It On His Own. Had he took Better Care of His Body He Would Have Kept Delivering Great Games till around age 35. He was done at age 33 while Malone Kept on Good Level till almost 40.

I think Malone was the Best Recieving Run and Gun Finisher Ever

Jordan tended to do that to people. The only players on the Dream Team to get a championship while Jordan wasn't retired were Magic and Bird and that was before Jordan's prime. Pippen, obviously, played with him. Robinson and Drexler won when he was out of the game. Ewing, Stockton, Malone and Barkley were all stopped by Jordan's bulls.
