Playing career

Charles Barkley claims in Sir Charles: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles Barkley that the Suns had to trade Perry to Philadelphia in 1992 because he was #34, Barkley's number. Perry appeared in three NBA Slam Dunk Contests, finishing 5th in 1989, 7th in 1993, and 5th in 1995.

For the 1996–1997 season, he moved over to Spain where he spent the next five seasons in the Liga ACB. In 1998, he won the Copa del Rey de Baloncesto with Pamesa Valencia. [3]

Perry later became an assistant coach for Holy Family University, Pennsylvania of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference in NCAA Division II. [4] In 2011, he received a degree in liberal studies from Neumann University. [5]

On the October 25, 2017 broadcast of NBA Gametime on the NBA Channel, Shaquille O'Neal claimed that he had been "dunked on" only three times in his 20-year NBA career. Shaq said he had been dunked on by Michael Jordan, Derrick Coleman, and Tim Perry.
