Former Auburn Tigers star and NBA legend Charles Barkley received quite the present at his school's football game on Saturday night.

Barkley was a guest at Auburn's blowout win over Mississippi State. He received a gift on the field from the Tigers' basketball team.

The former NBA star, who has a statue outside Auburn Arena, received a 2019 Final Four ring from head coach Bruce Pearl.

The 2018-19 Tigers' team received their Final Four rings at Pearl's house on Friday night. The Auburn team was at the game on Saturday night to celebrate the season.

Barkley received his own Final Four ring from Pearl on the field.

That is pretty awesome.

Barkley is one of the most-accomplished players in NBA history, but he clearly holds Auburn close to his heart, and this ring should be one of his most-prized possessions.
