Host Jimmy Fallon asked Barkley about his “tricky relationship” with fellow TNT hoops analyst Shaquille O’Neal, and that segued into O’Neal’s taped inquiry about Barkley going commando on the air.
Barkley fessed up on his avoidance of undies.
“I thought they were unnecessary for spacing the house, so I gathered all my drawers together and had a big ole bonfire,” he said. “I’ve been 10 years without underwear and I feel good about it, Jimmy.”
