Jazz great Karl Malone had one of the weirder sound bites during this year's NBA All-Star weekend.
In an interview on the set of "Inside the NBA," Malone claimed that analyst and former Dream Team teammate Charles Barkley would keep vaseline inside of his belly button while playing in case his lips got dry during the game.
The revelation caught Barkley's coworkers off-guard prompting raucous laughter and a chorus of "Say it ain't so, Chuck!"
Barkley, to his credit, didn't deny the allegation.
"Ain't nothing worse than a black man with big crusty lips," he said.
