NBA: Charles Barkley, Dominique Wilkins, Joe Dumars enter Hall of Fame
Barkley averaged 22 points and almost 12 rebounds in 16 NBA seasons.
„I always tried as hard as I possibly could,” Barkley said. „I like seeing that on tape. Today, they want to be stars. They don’t want to be great players. We wanted to be great players.”
Dumars was the good guy on the Bad Boys, the Detroit Pistons teams in 1989 and 1990 that won championships, and also included more high-profile stars, such as Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas, Bill Laimbeer and Dennis Rodman.
Like Barkley, Wilkins never won a championship. But he was a nine-time NBA All-Star and a two-time NBA Slam Dunk champion known as „the Human Highlight Film” for his above-the-rim acrobatics.
I have seen them play. Did I mentioned, that I right now, I am feeling old? :( ;)
