The Philadelphia 76ers will unveil a sculpture of Hall of Fame forward Charles Barkley on Sept. 13 outside of their practice facility in Camden, N.J.
Barkley played his first eight seasons with the 76ers after being selected fifth overall in the 1984 NBA Draft. He made five straight All-Star teams and averaged 23.3 points and 11.6 rebounds in that span.
He still ranks in the top 10 in club history in offensive rebounds (first), defensive rebounds (first), field-goal percentage (second), total rebounds (third), free throws (fourth), steals (fifth), points (fifth), field goals (sixth) and minutes played (eighth).
Barkley's No. 34 was retired by the team in 2001 and he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006.
His sculpture joins those of fellow franchise greats Billy Cunningham, Wilt Chamberlain, Maurice Cheeks, Julius Erving, Hal Greer and Bobby Jones along 76ers Legends Walk.
