Today’s Topic: Barkley Reaches 10,000-Rebound, 20,000-Point Club
On this date in 1996, Charles Barkley pulled down his 10,000th rebound to become at the time just the 10th player in NBA history to record 10,000 rebounds and 20,000 points. There are now 16 players who have accomplished this milestone, with Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan joining the club in recent years. With his 4,215 career assists, Barkley joins Garnett, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone as the only players to accumulate 20,000-plus points, 10,000-plus rebounds and 4,000-plus assists in a career.
This Throwback Thursday, we honor “Sir” Charles Barkley’s Hall-of-Fame career.
