Charles Barkley is one of the all-time great NBA players. In 1993, the former Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns star was named NBA MVP. He was selected for 11 NBA All-Star Games and 10 All-NBA teams.
While Barkley was incredible on the court, he may be even better off the court.
Following his playing days, the legendary NBA star has built a successful media career. He’s arguably the most entertaining NBA analyst at Turner Sports. With Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith, and Ernie Johnson, Inside the NBA is as good as sports television gets.
Barkley, on the other hand, is more than just a former basketball player turned analyst.
The Alabama native also has a family. In 1989, Barkley married Maureen Blumhardt. Together, the happy couple has a daughter. Earlier this year, his daughter married.
“I’ve been working out really hard because apparently they have to pick me up in a chair,” Barkley said earlier this year to Jimmy Kimmel. “Listen, brother, I need all Jewish people on deck.” Because, man, I can only get so skinny before Saturday. It’s as if I’m a soldier with every hand on deck.
