Published on October 14th, 2011 by Astramskas, David | 123 views

This is a 36 year old way past his prime Chuckster with bad knees, back and probably kidneys from all the drinking he likes to do before games especially playoff games.   Facing a pre Dynasty Laker team with Shaq, Kobe & Glen Rice, he was able to man handle them in this game with the monster numbers of 30pts, 23rebs, 5ast, 2stls but the Lakers did eliminate the Rockets in just 4 games despite 20/10+ avg from Barkley.
