76ers will Honour Charles Barkley with a Statue on Team's 'Legends Walk'


The Philadelphia 76ers have announced that they will unveil a Charles Barkley statue outside the practice facility in Camden, New Jersey.

The Philly legend will be introduced on the “76ers Legends Walk” on Friday, Sept. 13.

Barkley's No. 34 was retired by the Sixers in 2001 and he’s still the franchise leader in offensive (2,688) and defensive (4,391) rebounds.

He was drafted fifth overall by the Sixers in 1984 and spent the first eight seasons of his 16-year career there. He averaged 23.3 points and 11.6 rebounds per game with a career-high .576 shooting percentage to earn the city’s love. Barkley had five All-Star nods between 1987 and 1992 and the team went to the playoffs all six years.
