Unstoppable force: Charles Barkley in his prime (VIDEO)


The more time passes on, the more of NBA fans forget how good some of the NBA legends were in their prime. In particular, Charles Barkley, when he was playing for the Philadelphia Sixers (1984-1992). Barkley played 8 seasons for the team, averaging 23.3 ppg and 11.3 rpg.

While Barkley reached his peak as a team player with the Phoenix Suns, when he reached the NBA finals in 1993 against the Chicago Bulls, he was at times unstoppable, when he played for the Sixers.

By unstoppable we mean that Barkley was both outrebounding and outscoring his opponents on both ends of the court.

Check out Barkley’s Sixers highlights below:


Barkley, an 11-time All-Star, was named one of the NBA’s all-time 50 greatest players in 1993, the same year he won the league’s Most Valuable Player award.

Hall of Famer Barkley competed in the 1992 and 1996 Olympic games and won 2 gold medals. He holds career NBA averages of 22.1 ppg and 11.7 rpg in 36.7 minutes on the court. Barkley played in 1073 NBA games, starting in 1012 of them.
