Barry was an All-Pro forward for the NBA's Golden State Warriors and the New York Nets of the ABA from 1966-1979.

Named one of the 50 Greatest Players ever by the NBA, Barry is still considered one of the best forwards in history. He is the only player in history to have led the NCAA, ABA and NBA in scoring for an individual season.

Barry played at the University of Miami in the early-mid 1960s, where he led the NCAA in scoring.

The 6'7" Barry won the NBA Rookie of the Year award after averaging 25.7 points and 10.6 rebounds per game in the 1965-66 season. The following year, he won the NBA All-Star Game MVP award with a 38 point outburst, and led the NBA in scoring with a 35.6 point per game average " still the eighth highest scoring average in NBA history. Teamed with star center Nate Thurmond in San Francisco, Barry helped take the San Francisco Warriors to the NBA Finals that same season, where they lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in six games in spite of Barry's 40.8 point per game average in the series. Angered at not receiving incentive monies he felt owed for these feats from San Francisco manager Al Bianchi, Barry sat out his next season and jumped to the ABA for a much larger contract.

Barry starred in the less-talented league, twice averaging over 30 points per game, and he led the Oakland Oaks to the league championship in the 1968-1969 season. Seeking better competition and a return to his old team, Barry returned to the NBA in 1972. In 1975, he had a magical season. Barry averaged 30.6 points per game, led the league in both free throw percentage and steals per game, and ranked sixth in the NBA in assists per game. In the post-season, he led the now-Golden State Warriors to the NBA championship in a four game sweep over the favored Washington Bullets and was named Finals MVP. The following year, the 59-23 Warriors were upset in the playoffs by the sub-.500 Phoenix Suns. In 1977, they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round.

Rick Barry was traded to the Houston Rockets in return for John Lucas. Now in the twilight of his career, he averaged a modest 13.5 points. He did set a new NBA record (since broken), however, by posting a 94.7 free-throw percentage for the season. He retired in 1980.
