Charles Barkley & Jaylen Brown

The Boston Celtics have been in cruise control for much of the first half of the 2022-23 NBA season. They have been in first place in the Eastern Conference for most of the season, and their latest win over the Brooklyn Nets further solidified themselves as the best team in the league. Their record now stands at 31-12, making them the best team in the NBA and giving them a three-game lead over the Nets for the top seed in the East.

Barkley did not support Brown's recent fashion choices

It hasn't been easy sledding for the C's all season long, as they dealt with a sudden coaching chance when Ime Udoka was suspended by the team for the entire season and were forced to be without star center Robert Williams III for the first two months of the season after he underwent a late offseason surgery on his bothersome knee. But that hasn't stopped Boston from dominating almost every team they have come across so far this season.

The Celtics may have hit another bump in the road, with Jaylen Brown being forced to miss Boston's win over Brooklyn due to an adductor strain. Brown's absence shouldn't be lengthy, but Boston will miss him while he's on the sidelines. Brown was still with the team on Thursday night after being ruled out 90 minutes before tipoff, sporting an interesting light blue sweater, which ended up getting him roasted by Charles Barkley and the rest of the Inside the NBA crew after the game.

Barkley may try to get Brown a new stylist

Not much has gone wrong for the Celtics once they took the court after an interesting offseason. But in Barkley's opinion, and Shaquille O'Neal, who agreed with Barkley's take, Brown's sweater choice for this game that he didn't play in was a glaring mistake. It certainly was an exciting wardrobe choice from Brown, but it isn't the most ridiculous thing we have seen an NBA player wear this season.

NBA players always like to make fashion statements, whether it be when they are on the sideline watching games courtside or when they enter the stadium. But according to Barkley, Brown's sweater choice here was a glaring misstep. Assuming Brown can return to the court sooner rather than later, this may not be a huge issue moving forward, but if he continues to have to miss time, he may want to think twice before selecting what he wears, as he could end up getting roasted by Barkley and company once again.
