WATCH Shaq Takes a Tumble, Fans Respond with Hilarious Memes

Down goes Shaq.

Basketball great Shaquille O’Neal tripped on the set of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” halftime show Wednesday, a seismic wipeout that drew widespread attention on social media.

O’Neal, who stands at 7-foot-1-inch, appeared to get his size-22 shoe caught in a cord. After falling he lay on the ground, his arms outstretched, as his on-air team tried to make sense of the situation.

“The Big Shaqtus,” 43, laughed off his tumble, offering $500 to the person who creates the best Internet meme related to his huge fall.
