Former NBA great and current TNT sports personality Shaquille O’Neal took a tumble tonight.
O’Neal was trying to race co-host Kenny Smith to the big screen during the halftime show of the Clippers-Rockets game when he took a fall, reports SBNation.com (video below).
O'Neal appeared to get tripped up in some cords, however, Deadspin.com noted that he has a history (video below) of "engaging in slapstick humor on 'Inside the NBA,' so we can’t be sure that this isn’t a gag."
Sporting News added, "TNT says it wasn't a setup, but it isn't fooling anyone. It was a setup. It was also hilarious."
For his part, O'Neal tweeted, "I almost broke my dam leg lol #downgoesshaq #shaqtinafall."
