Charles Barkley stored Vaseline in his belly button while he played
Charles Barkley has been mocked on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” for many of his personal hygienic and grooming habits. The crew teased him recently for getting his eyebrows waxed. Barkley was not embarrassed; he even boasted about getting manicures and pedicures. But things may have gone a little too far on Friday.
During halftime of the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge in Houston, Hall of Famer Karl Malone revealed on TNT that Chuck used to store Vaseline in his naval while he played.
“He had the shiniest lips I ever seen on a human being, male or female,” Malone said.
Barkley defended himself, “Ain’t nothing worse than a black man with big crusty lips.”
Barkley said he used the Vaseline to prevent chapped lips, and that many other people with large lips could relate to him.
“American’s on my side with this one,” Barkley responded.

Should we classify this one as TMI?
