Charles Barkley to LeBron James: Stop painting your hair, use Rogaine
The NBA recently approved a three-year pilot program to test out placing advertisements on players’ jerseys starting in 2017, and Charles Barkley thinks the Cleveland Cavaliers should make a deal with Rogaine. Do you really need to ask why?
During Tuesday’s edition of “Inside the NBA,” Barkley hinted that Rogaine would be a great advertising partner for the Cavs because LeBron James is trying to hide the fact that he’s losing his hair.
“You think he don’t know he’s going bald?” Barkley asked. “I’m trying to save him so he can stop wasting all his money on paint.”
Barkley’s comment was actually just a small piece of a very entertaining segment from the TNT crew. You can watch the entire thing below:
LeBron’s hairline has been tougher to figure out than a Rubik’s Cube over the years. One minute he is mocking himself for being bald, and the next we see a photo that shows his hair magically reappearing.
The paint that Barkley was referring to is something that Carlos Boozer knows all about, but LeBron’s barber insists King James has never used anything like that. If LeBron comes out and endorses Rogaine like Barkley recommends, the marketing possibilities would be endless.
