Boys will be boys and Kenny Smith proved it on TNT’s ‘Halftime Show.’ The retired basketball star got a little too playful during his telecast with Shaquille O’Neal.

Kenny Smith, 49, and Shaquille O’Neal, 42, were discussing the need to get aggressive on the court when the pair broke off into a impromptu race towards the set’s Christmas tree. What happened next was absolutely hilarious!

Kenny Smith Pushes Co-Host Shaquille O’Neal

Did the TNT hosts have a bit too much eggnog? These boys really are the most entertaining studio team from any sport, not just basketball.

But on Dec. 25, they took their antics to a whole new level. Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal were having a debate, when they both decided to race to the decorated Christmas tree.

Just as Shaq was about to reach the tree, Kenny gives him a big push and down goes Shaq!

The 7-foot-1, 320 pound basketball legend toppled head first into the tree. It’s amazing he didn’t snap the tree like a twig.

Shaq To Kenny: “This Means War”

Don’t worry, the big guy was ok. But he’s out for revenge.

“That was an accident,” Kenny said laughing, quickly trying to defend himself.

But Shaq is no fool, “This means war,” the retired Laker star said.

We really want to see what Shaq has up his sleeve as payback to Kenny.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers, should Shaq give Kenny a payback? Let us know.
