Call him ?Sir Charles?, call him ?The Round Mound of Rebound? or just call him Chuck. Whatever you want to call him, there is no denying the immeasurable amount of talent and heart that he possessed. Standing at only 6 feet 4 inches tall, Barkley was an undersized (height wise) Power Forward, yet is only one of four players to retire with over 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4,000 assists. Barkley has amassed a number of awards during his professional career, including MVP honors, 11 All-Star game appearances, and 5 NBA first team nods and 2 Olympic gold medals. Barkley was also awarded the SEC player of the decade for the 80?s for his service at Auburn.

Charles inked with Nike out of college and has been capo status as far as the sheer number of signature shoes behind only, his Airness. Charles solidified his star status with Nike during his I Am Not A Role Model campaign. Kids went wild for Charles? rebel attitude along with his spirited play. Charles? outspoken demeanor has no doubt helped to sell shoes and has made his foyer into broadcasting seamless. Charles? outspoken personality continues to shine through and though his weight is on the rise, so are TV ratings and Emmy awards for Chuck Diesel.
