Happy 50th Birthday Charles Barkley! Sometimes I forget that Barkley was more than a funny, outspoken player. He is a member of the NBA Hall of Fame He was an NBA MVP, a gold medalist on the Dream Team, an 11 time All-Star and finished his career with over 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4.000 assists. According to this picture, he also enjoyed going to see adult movies in the theater.
Clyde “The Glide” Drexler played in the NBA from 1983 to 1998, mostly for the Portland Trailblazers, as well as a few years with the Houston Rockets to round out his career. He won a championship with the Rockets in 1995, but it really doesn’t count since Jordan took that year off to play baseball and gamble.
Clyde was a ten-time All-Star and member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, the NBA named him one of basketball’s fifty greatest players as of 1996. He was part of the 1992 USA Basketball “Dream Team.” I watched the documentary on said team last night and believe you me, there are more steeshes to come from that film.
