Ranking the Best NBA Trios of All-Time

22. Charles Barkley – Julius Erving – Moses Malone


The 76ers teams of the mid-’80s were a refreshing blend of old school and new school. Having received a top-5 pick for sending World B. Free to the Clippers, the perennial playoff contender 76ers were able to select a blue-chip prospect in Charles Barkley. Barkley was teamed with ABA standouts Julius ‘Dr. J’ Erving and Moses Malone to form a slam-dunking troika in Philly. The trio only stuck together for two years before Malone was shipped to Washington, but Barkley credits his time playing alongside the two all-time greats as an enormously beneficial period of his career.
