If you haven’t been tuning in to NBA.com’s The Jump on Tuesday afternoons, you have been missing out on some fine work by Brent “Bones” Barry (in addition to my man Sekou, 3-D, and Kyle Montgomery). Over the course of the season Barry has brought out a segment from time to time called “Best of Five”, where he breaks down a hypothetical match-up between two entities in (you guessed it) five different categories.
Today’s Best of Five featured arguably the two most famous Chucks on the planet (sorry Klosterman, E. Cheese), with a heavyweight bout between Charles Barkley and Chuck Norris. Take it away, Brent:
Ah, the Chuck Norris is awesome meme. One of the first worldwide smashes of the Internet era, and still eliciting chuckles (no pun intended) to this day. Nicely done, Bones.
It does raise an interesting question though. In a Chuck-a-Chuck battle, who would come out on top?
