During yesterday’s Chicago Bulls vs OKC basketball game, Charles Barkley expressed his dislike for Bulls player Derrick Rose’s hair saying, “It’s really nappy and I hate nappy hair. He should put something on it. I hate nappy hair.”
This isn’t the first time Barkley has used the offensive term. Last year, Sacramento Kings’ Ben McLemore was his target when he was quoted on national television saying “Ben McLemore needs some of that green grease that people used to put in their hair back in the hood where I grew up. Get some of the naps out of there.”
Back in 2009, the retired basketball player and host took aim at Rasheed Wallace during a Celtics vs Magic game saying, “He should get a technical for having that nappy ass hair.”
It’s safe to say that if Charles Barkley wasn’t bald, he’d be relaxing the hell out of his strands every 3 days or so, essentially ending up bald in the end.
