"Greatest Experience Athletically of My Life"
The Arizona Republic
June 22, 2003
1993 NBA MVP Charles Barkley talks with The Arizona Repuplic's Lee Shappell about his Suns memories of 1993 and the years since.
First of all, it was the greatest experience athletically of my life. It started the day I was traded from Philadelphia. The thing that's amazing is we didn't win the championship . . . but what we went through the entire year was amazing.
Realistically, I've only had three chances, and all three were in Phoenix. We lost to the champs three years in a row, but I've always thought the best team wins in a seven-game series.

I really tried, and it didn't happen. I took a chance in the Finals, a big chance, with the fans when I went out of my way to go off on them for booing Kevin.
