If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. 

Shaquille O’Neal has proven to be a rather unsuccessful mechanical bull rider.

In a comedic segment of Thursday's Inside the NBA, the hoops legend put his robotic-bovine-taming capabilities to the test, and, for the most part, failed.

But it didn't deter him from making several attempts and utilizing a variety of strategies—from the conventional cowboy to the forward horn grip. 

His final spin even breached the 15-second mark!

Still, an A for his efforts might be too generous. After all, his feet nearly touched the ground.
