In this video, Mike Patrick hosts Charles Barkley and gets Barkley to tell a Larry Bird story.

The story itself cracks Barkley up because...well you’ll see. It’s both classic Bird and Barkley.

Then he continues and more or less relays Michael Jordan saying the same thing.

There are a lot of good things to say about the game today but personalities in the ‘90s were much more interesting. Consider just a few: Bird, Barkley, Jordan, Dennis Rodman, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Isaiah Thomas, Reggie Miller and Manute Bol.

The game is different today and has in many ways evolved, but the players, as people, aren’t as interesting.
