Shaquille O’Neal. AKA Shaq. AKA Shaq Daddy. AKA The Big Aristotle. AKA The Big Banana. AKA another cool nickname, did something amazing on TV the other night. When he got up to do his customary run to the big screen with Kenny Smith to dissect plays during halftime between the Houston Rockets and LA Clippers, he fell. He fell hard.
He fell so hard, he even lost his giant shoe:
