Shaquille O'Neal falls on the floor hard during TNT show - Watch

Former basketball star Shaquille O’Neal falls out of his chair during halftime show.

Shaq was covering basketball for TNT last night, and made an almighty mess after he got out of his seat to do a bit of a demonstration.

O’Neal clambered out of his seat, unaware that a wire connected to his monitor had wrapped itself around his ankle like a lasso.

And when Shaq tried to take a step, he was sent flying, and some pretty expensive equipment followed him to the studio floor.

After rolling around on the ground for about a minute and claiming he was set up by host Ernie Johnson, Shaq eventually got back into his seat, before the team gave some cutting edge analysis to his fall.
