Charles Barkley made his mark within the NBA during the 16 years in the league. He's taking some achievements and selling them in order to help out in the hometown of Leeds, Alabama. The Shade Room has more details on this issue, and you can check them out below.
TSR cites info from CNN, and reported that 'Barkley is working with sports card company Panini to sell one of his two Olympic gold medals and his 1993 NBA MVP Award to help fund 20 homes that will be built in his hometown.'
He appeared on the Dan Le Batard Show and stated the following: 'I don't think I have to walk around with my gold medal or my MVP trophy for people to know I'm Charles Barkley, so I'm going to sell all that crap.'
A lot of people freaked out when they saw the news because they believed that TSR was about to reveal that the man is also infected with the coronavirus.
