BOOM! Did hear that? That’s the sound of Shaquille O’Neal falling down. And when the the NBA champion tripped during his appearance on ‘Inside The NBA’ on May 6, Shaq hit the floor in an epic collision! Yikes!

OUCH! Shaq! Are you okay, guy? Shaquille O’Neal, 43, was never the most graceful during his basketball career, but when you’re over seven feet tall, you don’t need to be a ballerina. Though, as the saying goes – the bigger they are, the harder they fall. And, wow! Shaq fell HARD during a recent TV appearance! Watch the video of his scary tumble and try not to wince!

Shaq Falls On Live TV: Takes Huge Tumble On TNT

Shaq came crashing down during TNT’s Inside the NBA on May 6, reports E! News. During the halftime report of the Houston Rockets/Los Angeles Clippers game, the four time-NBA champion tried to beat his co-host, Kenny Smith, to the Halftime Report sign. However, a cord caught the 7’1 athlete’s ankle and suddenly, Shaq was introduced to the studio floor!

Yikes! We were REALLY scared by Shaq’s fall. You can hear the THUD in the clip, as the video equipment clatters about. Thankfully, Shaq wasn’t seriously hurt. His pride was bruised, but Shaq seemed to quickly laugh it off. After all, he starred in Kazaam, so there’s really not much you can do to embarrass him anymore.

Shaq’s Fall Memes: Having Fun Over His Fall

Shaq’s sense of humor about himself is why we love the big guy. Not only was he comfortable enough to share his faceplant on his own twitter, he encouraged his fans to make hilarious memes about his fall! He even said he’d reward the best one with $500 cash!

Hilarious! Shaq, you made our day. It’s so great that not only can you have fun with your goof-ups, but you encourage your fans to join in. We’re glad you’re okay, though. Now, if you’ll excuse us – we better load up Photoshop! There’s $500 on the line!
