Really tired saying, but I'll the same they won in their own era: Zero.

Barkley would have a better chance than Malone because he was the better player, but his game would be hindered from the rules changes. He wouldn't be able to back down like he used too from the post or the top of the key. He would still dominate, but not as much as a post player IMO. He would have a better chance than Malone would at a title, but I think his lazy work ethic and "lack of drive to get a title" would be his downfall.

Malone had 19 years to get a championship and failed every year in the playoffs. Sure, he had good showing sometimes, but his obvious drop off in the playoffs and the rule changes that effected the big man position, makes me confident in saying he wouldn't be as effective trying to being more of a jump shooting big man than a post player.
