Shaquille O'Neal Fell on 'Inside the NBA' and the Internet Memes Keep Coming

As a rare change of pace, an absurd and funny thing occurred on Inside the NBA that was unscripted and completely out of left field.

Shaquille O'Neal, the biggest of big trees, fell hard on the set Wednesday night after trying to run to the big screen with Kenny Smith. Having unwittingly entangled his leg in a cord, O'Neal leaped from the platform and ripped a monitor out of the on-set desk.

He hit the ground hard, and the denizens of the Internet fired up Photoshop before his body could even come to rest on the studio floor.

Shaq, who is uninjured and in high spirits, embraced the moment and fed himself joyfully into the turning gears of the Meme Machine. 

Everyone chipped in, with SB Nation's perennially strong visual team leading the charge:

Memes: one of the few redemptive aspects of the Internet.

UPDATE: May 8.

We have a winner!

Congrats, @FreeBeez4Mee.
