Video: How about some 1980s Charles Barkley flashback?

Sep 18, 2012, 11:21 PM EDT

If you haven’t noticed, this week NBA TV has been running a lot of the show “NB80s,” which is essentially the basketball version of VH1’s “I love the 80s” show.

This segment talks about 1980s Charles Barkley, back when he owned Philadelphia and was a phenomenon in the league. As Chris Webber and others say, how Barkley did this at his height (6’6″ in shoes) was maybe the most amazing part of it all.

Fun little bit for a Tuesday night. Way better than watching more NCIS.

    Is Barkley a top-25 player all-time? Above or below Karl Malone?

    Here’s your top 50 to solve the debate while starting plenty of new ones:

    Definitely better than Karl Malone and I don’t think it’s close. Barkley could do so many more things on the floor.
