Elgin, Cousy and the Dream: Top 50 Players in NBA History Part IV

16. Charles Barkley

Alright knuckleheads, before Charles Barkley was an announcer for NBA on TNT, he was one of the most athletic rebounders in the game of basketball as he grabbed a total of 12,546 rebounds in his career (11.7 rpg).

In addition to his remarkable rebounding skills, he was also an avid shooter as he scored a total of 23,757 points (22.1 ppg) for his career. Even though he never won an NBA championship with any of the three teams that he played for, he did demonstrate his superior basketball skills as he was selected 11-times as an NBA All-Star.


15. Karl Malone

Malone is regarded as one of the best power forwards in the history of the NBA. He collected two regular-season MVP awards, eleven NBA First Team nominations and was also selected to the NBA All-Defensive Team three times.

Malone led the NBA in free throws made a league-record seven times. Over 1,476 NBA games (fourth all-time), and 1,471 starts (most all-time, never coming off the bench after his rookie season), Malone scored 36,928 points (25.0 per game), second-best all-time, on .516 shooting.
