One of the best things about seeing Charles Barkley on NBA on TNT is that he has no filter. Viewers almost never know what is going to come out of Chuck’s mouth.

Case in point, this story from Charles Barkley about why he always travels with his own big bars of soap after nearly suffering ‘an incident’ at a hotel years ago, nearly losing one of those tiny soap bars in his body.

The NBA on TNT YouTube account just shared this clip which is part of their Steam Room podcast. And Barkley talks about nearly losing one of those tiny hotel soap bars in his big ol’ body.

Charley Barkley said to Ernie Johnson “You know I travel with my own soap? You knew that didn’t you?” Adding “I travel with a big bar of soap. I love soap.”

Ernie Johnson asked him what Chuck was afraid of with hotel soap. Charles responded “These hotels started being cheap. Those bars ain’t big enough. Because I almost had a couple of accidents with the soap in hotels.”

Ernie prodded Barkley for more details. Charles went on to say “Well, when I was washing a part of my body, I almost had a little incident. I almost had a little incident with those little bars of soap.”

Ernie Johnson asked Charles Barkley to explain almost losing the soap. Chuck said “I almost lost it and I was like, ‘WHOA, that was too close for comfort.’ So now I travel with my own big bars of soap.”

Charles is 6’6″ and weighs over 250. He’s a big dude. It’s easy to see how one of those tiny bars of soap might get lost. But it would have been a LOT funnier if he elaborated a little more. Shaq would’ve.
