We can forget that he played basketball really well. What I love is that he's been able to make a living purely by being a character. Even if his basketball talent wasn't Hall of Fame worthy, he's still one of the most entertaining players to come out of the NBA.

I just read Valsviews' review of Charles Barkley. As soon as I read it, I couldn't help but think of the  NBA Superstar's video (see bottom of review).  I was a huge fan of Barkley growing up.  Not only did the guy have a totally unique and explosive game.  The vast majority of the time, he played with serious heart, hustle and intensity - which is why he was able to win a rebounding title, while standing only 6'5" (6'4" by some accounts), and to guard …

Wiki

Charles Wade Barkley (born February 20, 1963) is a former American professional basketball player. Nicknamed "Sir Charles" and "The Round Mound of Rebound" , Barkley established himself as one of the National Basketball Association's (NBA's) most dominating power forwards.

He competed in the 1992 and 1996 Olympic games and won two gold medals as a member of the United States' Dream Team. In 2006, Barkley was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
 
Barkley was popular with the fans and media and made the NBA's All-Interview Team for his last 13 seasons in the league. He was frequently involved in on- and off-court fights and sometimes stirred national controversy, as in March 1991 when he mistakenly spat on a young girl, and as in 1993 when he declared that sports figures should not be considered role models.
