Comedy fans waiting with bated breath for Shaquille O'Neal to bust out some hilarious hijinks during the 2013 NBA Playoffs got their wish Sunday night during halftime of TNT's broadcast of the Miami Heat's 110-87 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. And how did the Big Kazaam grant that wish? By showing a clip of him stripping down into his skivvies and going for a lap around the set of NBA TV's Fan Night broadcast, much to the chagrin of hosts Matt Winer and Greg Anthony.
Behold the laffs:
"That was a bet I had to pay to [TNT analyst] Kenny [Smith]," Shaq explained. Well, "explained," I guess. We don't know what the bet was or when it took place.
Whatever the circumstances of the tank-top-and-boxers run, though, it's pretty likely that the idea was Shaq's from Jump Street — you might remember that Shaq seems to do stuff in his underwear in front of cameras an awful lot.
Like walk on the beach in hot pink bikini briefs during an episode of the Peabody Award-winning reality show "Shaq Vs."
Or walk around the "Inside the NBA" set in boxers to pay off a Blake Griffin vs. Kevin Love bet he made with Charles Barkley.Read More »from Shaq runs around NBA TV set in his underwear because he loves doing stuff in his drawers (Video)
