Charles Barkley  From the onset of his career Barkley was surrounded by greatness. Drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers in 1984, he joined a team that includes legends Julius Erving, Moses Malone and Maurice Cheeks. Holding his own, Sir Charles averaged 14 points and 8.6 rebounds per game during his rookie season. A year later, he was the team’s leading rebounder and second scorer before eventually becoming the Sixers’ franchise player until he was traded in 1992 to the Phoenix Suns, where he continued to dominate as a rebounder and team leader. By time he retired in 2000, Barkley became the fourth player in NBA history to achieve 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4,000 assists. However, the Dream Team gold medalist was never able to win a title to compliment his accolades.

Green believes lessons are worth the investment. “If you get some basic fundamentals, it helps you so much further down the road because you know you’ve got good basics.”

Last week, news broke about two African American men, Christopher Johnson and Nathaniel Claybrooks, filing a class action lawsuit against the producers of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. The men claim that they were rejected from being cast on the popular reality show because they are Black.

While the rest of the world argues the validity and diversity of reality television’s latest bachelors, BlackEnterprise.com rounded up a list of the hottest 10 single brothers that should be on your radar. Not only are these men easy on the eyes but they’re all certified movers and shakers, too. Ladies, you’re welcome. —Bridgette Bartlett of Black Bridal Bliss
