The seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback had repeatedly proved that he was one of the best in the sport. TB12 has cemented himself very well in the world of sports. Fans consider him to be in the same category as Michael Jordan, Tiger, Woods, and Wayne Gretzky.

One such legendary personality to do so was the NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley.

“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.”
Barkley was trying to make the point that no other player could likely match Brady’s spectacular career. He was the most powerful and impact when he threw the pigskin. One cannot disagree that winning back-to-back Super Bowls, as he did in 2004 and 2005, is not difficult. The 45-year-old impressed Chuck despite he never gave star hoopers like Shaquille O’Neal, MJ, or Bryant any credit.
