Charles Barkley appeared on NBC's intermission show during Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final this evening. We're not exactly sure why, but we're glad he did.

The Turner Sports NBA analyst was wearing quite the outfit for his appearance.

In a move we haven't seen before, the former NBA star was wearing a light-blue button-up shirt over a royal blue polo.

It's quite the layering strategy.

ESPN's Molly McGrath speculated that Barkley had to put a long-sleeve shirt on to appear on the air.

That's a decent theory.

Or, maybe Barkley was just cold inside the hockey arena. We might never know the true reason...

Game 7 is on NBC.
