Video: Shaq shows off his underwear on “Inside the NBA”

Shaquille O'Neal's first few outings on TNT's "Inside the NBA" have been up and down, to put it charitably. Still, he's starting to develop relationships with the rest of the studio team, including Charles Barkley. For the most part, that means Shaq says something questionable, Barkley undermines him, and Ernie Johnson or Kenny Smith tells a stupid joke to defuse tension. It's TV at its best.

Last week, Shaq and Chuck got to talking about the top power forwards in the NBA; the former repped Blake Griffin, while the latter sang the praises of Kevin Love. The discussion got mildly contentious, and eventually Shaq proposed a bet that the supporter of whichever player did worse during their game last Friday would have to go pantsless on the "Inside the NBA" set. Presumably at an hour when children would be asleep.

The stats were roughly equal — Love went for 17 points and 14 rebounds, Griffin went for 21 and 10 — but Love's game-winning three at the buzzer tipped the scales. So, on Thursday's "Inside the NBA," Shaq put on a show. Thankfully, he kept this shirt and jacket.

Watch it above, and hop to the 2:50 mark for the payoff. If you think a huge person wearing underwear is hilarious, you're going to love it.
