The TNT crew makes fun of the outspoken Charles Barkley for waxing his eyebrows.  Barkley is actually quite proud of his waxed brows.

Charles Barkley doesn’t embarrass easily.  He didn’t exactly try to hide the fact that he gets his eyebrows waxed as he worked the Clippers-Suns game on Thursday night.  Phoenix beat Lob City 93-88.  Of course, this made him an easy target for the TNT crew.  Good for Chuck though.  He has always been one of my favorite analysts because he’s so transparent.

Do you think Barkley knew that he would get crushed for getting his eyebrows waxed?  Yep.  Do you think he cared?  Nope.  That’s what is so great about Barkley.  He’s not going to try to be something he’s not just to appease other people.  I’m not a huge fan of waxed eyebrows, but that’s not the point.  It’s the principle of being yourself that matters.  Too many people are afraid to simply be themselves.
