Charles Barkley thinks LeBron James can be better than Michael Jordan. Jordan is considered by many to be the best player in NBA history. Barkley says he would never compare anyone to the Hall of Famer and six-time NBA champion. But Barkley also says that James is ''just bigger, stronger, faster.'' Barkley makes his comments on the first episode of NBA TV's ''Open Court,'' to debut Tuesday at 11 p.m. EDT. The series features a round-table discussion of NBA TV and TNT commentators. They include Shaquille O'Neal, Reggie Miller, Kenny Smith, Steve Smith, Chris Webber, Steve Kerr and Ernie Johnson. James joined Jordan this year as the only players to win the NBA title, regular-season MVP, NBA Finals MVP and Olympic gold in the same year.
