Charles Barkley shares a personal story that is a little too close to comfort.

Charles Barkley can sometimes be a walking headline. The NBA Hall-of-Famer seems to stay in the news over comments he has mentioned. But his latest story might be one he wishes he could take back. On a recent episode of The Steam Room, Barkley discussed a rather bizarre thing he does while on the road. Sir Charles claims he brings his own bars of soap with him on trips. He claims that soap at hotels is too small for him to use. However, the reason behind his thought may be a little too rated R for public consumption.

"I travel with a big bar of soap... These hotels started being cheap. Those bars ain't big enough. Because I almost had a couple of accidents with the soap at hotels." Co-host Ernie Johnson could barely keep it together when Barkley delved into the details of hotel soap. Barkley insinuated that the small soap may have almost caused him to make a mistake. We'll let you decipher what Barkley means with his comments. But it won't be hard for you to put it together.

Charles Barkley Won't Drop His Soap

The story was too much for Shaq to take. The former NBA big man lost it when Barkley recounted the story on NBA on TNT. Charles can sometimes be comedy without even realizing it. However, this time, the former Suns star knows he has comedy gold. The NBA on TNT crew is the best team covering the sport. Shaq, Ernie, Kenny, and Charles are can't miss television.
