Charles Barkley offers his thoughts on comparisons between LeBron James and Michael Jordan.

Charles Barkley recently gave an interview on The Dan Patrick Show, and in a shocking turn of events, he was asked to compare LeBron James to Michael Jordan:

"I’ve said before that it’s sacrilegious for me to say that. If LeBron can win four or five championships, this guy is pretty special man. I said this last year, I’ve never seen a guy like this guy.

Barkley went on to praise James for his combination of athleticism, power, and speed.

Even before James won his first championship this season, Barkley recognized that it was "an honor and a pleasure to watch him play."

Barkley was quick to work Kobe Bryant into the discussion, adding:

"Kobe is unbelievable. I don’t want to leave him out of the conversation but I’m a little leery comparing anyone to Michael Jordan but if LeBron can win four or five championships I think you can put him at the same table with Michael."
