Yesterday, Karl Malone made an appearance on the NBA on TNT studio and made a, uh, weird revelation about the nowhere to be seen, Charles Barkley. Malone claimed that Barkley would keep Vaseline in his belly button during games. If you're dry heaving right now, please regain your composure before reading on. OK, ready?

According to Malone, Barkley would occasionally rub the Vaseline on his lips during games. Yuck! Eventually, the Round Mound of belly button Vaseline Rebound responded to the claims, saying "There is nothing worse than a black man with crusty lips." Chapped lips are definitely a bad look, but c'mon Charles, there wasn't a better place to store it? Inside the sock? On the bench? Just to name a few.
