Charles Barkley joins the Dan Patrick Show to discuss why he believes Tom Brady’s accomplishments are the most astounding in all of sports, as well as how humble he is for someone who has accomplished so much.
NBA icon Charles Barkley believes Tom Brady’s career is unparallel in American sports history, so much so that even LeBron James’ career, with all of his accolades, pales in comparison.
Barkley stated as much in a recent interview with Dan Patrick on the Dan Patrick Show. He was asked who he believes has more career accomplishments between Brady and LeBron, and he didn’t hesitate to pick TB12.
Of course, this is not a criticism of James or what he has accomplished, but rather a credit to Tom Brady’s incredible career.
“To have every game be a Game 7, I believe Tom Brady’s career is unprecedented”

“It’s Tom Brady. “We’ll respect Tom Brady even more,” Barkley said of the Brady-LeBron analogy. “Number one, 10 Super Bowls is fantastic, but the thing that’s weird about why I place football successes ahead of basketball accomplishments is that every game in the NFL is a one-game-you-out, you’re done.
“[In the NBA], if you had Kareem, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Kobe [Bryant], LeBron [James], Michael [Jordan], you can lose one game, two games, and three games. But, regardless of how good your regular season was, having every game be a Game 7, and having this man make it to 10 Super Bowls and win seven, is one of the greatest accomplishments in history. “To have every game be a Game 7, I believe Tom Brady’s career is unprecedented.”
It’s difficult to disagree with Charles Barkley’s statement here
Regardless of the issues in which Tom Brady has been involved, no one can deny that what he has accomplished in his career is tough to imitate.
It’s also true that winning a championship in the NFL, much alone numerous ones, is extremely difficult. No team has won back-to-back NFL championships since the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005, which Tom Brady headed.
What Barkley is saying is that there is no room in the NFL for bad days, and for Tom Brady to dominate as he did is just astounding.
The NFL will undoubtedly miss Tom Brady now that he has retired, but his legacy will undoubtedly carry on as more and more quarterbacks attempt to surpass him and the standard he has established.
