In honor of Charles Barkley turning 51 years old on Feb. 20, it's time to look back at some of his greatest moments on and off the court.

Sir Charles was an entertaining player to watch throughout his career, and he continues to be fun to watch on television. He certainly provided some great moments through the years.

Barkley once threw down a big dunk on the 7'7" Manute Bol:

The two were later teammates from 1990 to 1992 with the Philadelphia 76ers, so Barkley was able to pull off a solid prank on Bol

Thanks for the memories, Sir Charles.
