The unfiltered version of Charles Barkley -- which is the only version we've really ever known -- was on display once again Tuesday night during the NBA playoffs.

This time, the former Phoenix Suns star went after an easy target: LeBron James' receding hairline.

With the NBA announcing that it will soon add corporate sponsors to player jerseys, Barkley suggested LeBron should broker a sponsorship deal with Rogaine to help counter his hair loss.

"Oh, you don't think he knows he's going bald?" Barkley asked the NBA on TNT panel. "I'm trying to save him so he can stop wasting all his money on paint."

Rumors of LeBron's baldness have run rampant. It was one of the suggested reasons for him wearing a head band for portions of his NBA career.

Perhaps the best way for LeBron to make all these jokes (not to mention unlimited Internet memes) to go away would be to take after the Chuckster: shave his head and be done with it.
