I don't know if he's better than Barkley. Obviously the vastly superior defender, but Barkley was just a MONSTER in money on the table games. He was clutch, and one of the best playoff performers I've ever seen.KG is criminally underrated. As soon as he got anything close to the support of Shaq/Kobe/Duncan, he put his foot in the NBA's ass and won a title. He is better than Barkley.
