Charles Barkley Reveals His Top 10 Player Of All Time List: LeBron James Is Not In The Top 5
Charles Barkley reveals his top 10 players of all time with some surprising names.
Charles Barkley constantly surprises fans with his comments about NBA-related matters. The Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns legend was always outspoken during his NBA career and when he became an analyst, nothing changed for him.
During his participation on TNT's Inside the NBA, Charles has shown his talents to talk and talk and entertain fans, but sometimes, he takes things a little too far, enraging fans, players, and even his colleagues.
All-time lists are always hateful to make, and when you're a legend like Barkley, whose opinion is very valuable, people listen to him. However, he's not perfect and sometimes, Chuck really misses. This is what happened during his recent appearance on Showtime's "All the Smoke," where he talked about his favorite players of all time.
Everybody has a top-10 list, including Chuck, but his top is really curious. He has his former friends Michael Jordan at the top, which is normal for a lot of people, but after that, things get really interesting for the 1993 NBA MVP.

1. Michael Jordan
2. Oscar Robertson
3. Wilt Chamberlain
4. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
5. Bill Russell
6. Kobe Bryant
7. LeBron James
8. Tim Duncan
9. Hakeem Olajuwon
10. Jerry West
This is a very interesting list, considering that LeBron James isn't even in the top 5 while he's considered the biggest competition Michael Jordan has for the GOAT title. But for Chuck, the situation is very different. It's also worth noting that he didn't mention Shaquille O'Neal, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson on this list.
Barkley isn't somebody that will change his mind for anybody, and his broken relationship with Michael Jordan is a big proof of that. Even though many fans criticized this list, he's sticking with it. To be fair, he revealed his top 10 three years ago and looked very similar to this, so you know he's consistent with his selections.
