These are guys who obviously don't understand anything about 1on1 games. I don't think some have actually ever played in their lives.

Offensively, he could perhaps come close to matching Kobe. Defensively, I think Kobe's defense would have a greater effect on Barkley than Barkley's defense on Kobe. 5 games? Maybe Barkley could steal one or two, but I think Kobe would win overall.
