巴克利在接受 TNT 篮球主持人厄尼·约翰逊的播客采访时透露，他以 The First State 的一家购物中心的名字为女儿取名 Christiana.
Johnson appeared to be taken aback, but Barkley doubled down on his assertion, 说 “I just liked the mall.”
The Christiana Mall is located in Newark, 特拉华州, and is still in business with stores like Auntie Anne’s, Foot Locker and a handful of others. The mall is about 35 miles outside of Philadelphia but a pretty long drive from where the TNT studios are located in Atlanta.
“The Round Mound of Rebound” kickstarted his legendary career with Philadelphia in 1984. He played for the 76ers from 1984 至 1992 and later for the 凤凰城太阳队 和 休斯顿火箭队. He was an 11-time All-Star and an 11-time All-NBA First Teamer but never won a championship ring.
He finished his career averaging 22.1 点和 11.7 rebounds per game.
