Ex-NBA player Charles Barkley joined Mike Greenberg on Get Up to share his thoughts about playing against young Kobe Bryant:

“Kobe Bryant is the best basketball player I’ve seen compared to Michael Jordan. I think Michael is the greatest I’ve ever seen and played against but the only guy I’ve said, I’ve always said this Kobe Bryant is the closest I’ve ever seen. I didn’t get to play against Karim in his prime or with a Bill Russell or Lebron, but I’m telling you Kobe Bryant is the best player I’ve ever seen other than Michael Jordan,” Barkley said.
