Kenny Smith is so shocked by Charles Barkley’s unbelievable NBA shower story, he tells him flat out, “you’re making this up.”
Charles Barkley, now a member of the NBA Hall of Fame, has discussed his peculiar post-game ritual.
The 60-year-old sportscaster’s story about how he used to take a shower after games while still wearing his clothes had Kenny Smith in stitches on Friday.
What’s Barkley’s defense for this? Time ran out before I could get the laundry done.
When Barkley made this comment during the madness of March Madness, he was appearing on TNT’s Road To The Final Four.explainedwhen I first joined the NBA, we took a commercial flight, as he puts it.
For example: “When you stayed up all night dancing and then caught an early flight in the morning.
Inquire, “When did you plan to have your uniform laundered? You were responsible for cleaning your own uniform.
“So when you got back to your hotel room after the game, you showered in your uniform, dried it off, and hopped on a commercial airline the next morning,”
Smith, another NBA analyst and former player, repeatedly told Barkley, “you’re making this up,” because he couldn’t believe what he was hearing.
“No one in their right mind has ever done that,” Smith added.
You could actually clean it without showering in it,” Clark Kellogg said. Barkley was prepared with a response: “No, but it’s easier to do that way.”
Smith, Kellogg, and Greg Gumbel all found this so hilarious that they couldn’t contain their laughter.
As one Twitter user put it, “Keep in mind that he’s sitting next to 2 people who played college basketball in more or less the exact same time period lol.”
According to another, it was obvious that Chuck’s mental state was deteriorating the moment Kenny called timeout.
Only the severity of the inevitable outcome was in doubt.
At the same time, one voice proclaimed, “National treasure!” There is no one better than Chuck.
Barkley had a productive sixteen-year NBA career, during which he suited up for the 76ers, Suns, and Rockets.
He was selected to the All-Star Game eleven times and to the First Team All-NBA five times, and in 1993 he was named the league’s Most Valuable Player.
