Behold, Charles Barkley in a very small shirt

Deadspin received this hilarious but unconfirmed photo, captioned "Charles Barkley Swapping Shirts with a Bro," in an email from a reader named Tyler on Monday. The image shows the retired NBA player and basketball analyst posing in a snug plaid shirt with a young man holding what appears to be a bottle of champagne.

Charles Barkley.

There's no explanation why the 50-year-old Barkley would swap shirts with a "bro," but Barkley has had weight issues since he left the NBA in 2000. He also had a stint as a Weight Watchers spokesman in 2011, appearing in their "Lose Like a Man" commercials.
