Chuck missed the Phoenix Suns’ 1994-95 season opener because the first layers of his corneas got burned off by body lotion during an Eric Clapton concert. Apparently, allergies and the dazzling stage lights caused him to rub his eyes, and he got lotion in them.

Phoenix Suns team doctor, Richard Emerson, said: “It was a chemical reaction to a type of lotion that he uses. I wouldn’t anticipate it’ll reoccur because I don’t think he’ll use that type again.” No kidding.
