Datprince.. seriously, take your head outta your arse!
Barkley is a HOF player and one of the 50 greatest of all time. Dude's numbers are friggin mint and he played in the tougher league talent wise- meaning there was more talent in the league on each team at that time. More and better bigs, better guards and higher overal level of all-star talent. If this league is weaker why wouldn't he gain more hype?? Your post doesn't seem to make sense.
That's like saying Frazier wouldn't be nice in this era, which is counter-intuitive. He'd put a hurtin on people and do basically what he did in his era. Barkley would do the same.
A lil closer to being accurate, but still slightly biased.
I think Melo would play similar to how he's playing throughout his career in other decades.
He's a great scorer, a legit great scorer.
Games translate across eras.
Same w Barkley. He would dominate this era like he did 80's-90's.
