Biography

Charles BARKLEY

Basketball player Charles Barkley, a household name in his homeland, was top scorer for the USA’s all-conquering “Dream Team” at Barcelona 1992 and Atlanta 1996.

NBA legend

Charles Barkley is generally recognised as one of the greatest power forwards in American basketball history. His NBA performances with the Philadelphia 76ers (1984-1992), the Phoenix Suns (1992-1996) and the Houston Rockets (1996-2000) saw him secure 11 appearances in the prestigious All-Star Game, of which he was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 1991.

Voted overall MVP for the 1992-1993 NBA season, the impact of the 1986-1987 rebounding leader was such that his N°34 jersey was retired by the 76ers and the Suns in his honour.

Dream Team leader

Part of the US team that won the 1992 FIBA Americas Championship in Portland, Barkley would rise to international prominence a month later at the Barcelona Games, where he represented the legendary US “Dream Team” alongside a host of big-name players such as Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, David Robinson, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing and Scottie Pippen.
