The “There Will Never Be Another Player Like Me Again” is a song by the band “The Script”. The song talks about how special it is for someone to be able to play a sport. Read more in detail here: there will never ever be another song.
“I’m not John Elway.” That’s what Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said about retirement, but no one at the time could have predicted his legacy would go on to inspire him in later life. Sports is often referred to as a game of inches and nothing provides that like playing with your friends.
Charles Barkley is one of the best basketball players in the world when it comes to being a one-of-a-kind talent. Chuck always thought this to be true, particularly while he was in the peak of his career.
Even as an undersized power forward, Barkley’s combination of talent, quickness, and tenacity enabled him flourish. Despite his bulk, Chuck’s energy frequently caught opponents off guard, especially Yugoslavian players who faced him in an international tournament in 1983.
During his NBA Hall of Fame career, the Round Mound of Rebound earned a slew of nicknames, but the aforementioned combination of characteristics led Sir Charles to boast about his status as a global wonder.
Charles Barkley thrived despite his unusual physical appearance.
Charles Barkley had the height of a standard two-guard at 6-foot-6 (perhaps even lower). Despite this, his playing weight of 252 pounds virtually forced him to play in the frontcourt.
But what Barkley lacked in conventional stature at the 4-spot, he more than made up for with incredible basketball talent and deceptive quickness.
Sir Charles showed he could handle the ball, grabbing rebounds and going coast-to-coast for a bucket. On the break, he could face up and hit midrange jumpers off the bounce against less athletic players.
Barkley, on the other hand, retained a great deal of toughness. He was a scavenger on the offensive glass, averaging 4.0 offensive rebounds a season. Chuck consistently out-willed opposing big men in his chase of the ball, finishing 20th in total rebounds and 23rd in rebounds per game.
Barkley’s tough-guy manner mirrored his off-court demeanor as someone who never held back his opinions and never felt forced to be a role model. That demeanor projected self-assurance as well.
In a book he co-authored in 1992, Barkley referred to himself as the world’s “ninth wonder.”

Chuck performed enough with the Philadelphia 76ers in his first eight seasons to earn a spot on the Dream Team and establish himself as one of the game’s top power forwards.
Barkley was much more enamored with himself. Sir Charles said (h/t Buffalo News) in a 1992 book he co-authored, Outrageous: The Fine Life and Flagrant Good Times of Basketball’s Irresistible Force, that there will never be another player like him.
“As far as I’m concerned, there will never be another player like me.” There will never be another player who stands 6-foot-4 and averages more than 10 rebounds per game, scores inside against larger opponents anytime he wants, and is faster than almost everyone he faces. “I am the World’s Ninth Wonder.”

Chuck was known for his arrogance, which included a 1990 outburst about not having to practice. He had excellent cause to be effusive in his self-adoration at the time, as he went on to win NBA MVP with the Phoenix Suns in 1992-93.
Is Sir Charles’ statement, however, still correct? How has Barkley’s claim stood up almost 30 years later? In fact, I’d say it’s really good.
Sir Charles might be compared to Zion Williamson.
Charles Barkley is one of the few guys that can properly compare to him. The most striking likeness is definitely Zion Williamson.
Zion’s physical strength and explosive quickness, as well as his playmaking, cause problems for defenders, much as Barkley’s. He slams into the paint and scores with seeming ease, dribbling downhill and challenging opponents to take him to the hoop. Zion is also mentioned as being 6-foot-6 in height.
The ability to shoot is the most noticeable improvement. Barkley also spent more time pounding the low post and looking for second chances. Rather of posting up, Williamson prefers to go on the ball a bit more out from the hoop and execute pick-and-roll or isolation settings.
Another point of distinction is playing weight, which has recently been compounded by allegations that Williamson gained over 300 pounds while recovering from a foot ailment. Earlier this month, Barkley made a statement about the matter.
In any event, although Zion and Chuck have certain similarities, no one has yet to really mimic Barkley. Perhaps Sir Charles is the “ninth marvel” after all. When he’s on the mike, that’s clearly the case.
