If you can’t goof around with your buddies on Christmas, when can you? During halftime of a Christmas Day NBA broadcast, “Inside the NBA” analysts Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal got physical with their fun, and it didn’t end well for Shaq.
After a civil enough discussion of fouls, Smith and O’Neal both got mischievous looks in their eyes before racing toward a Christmas tree on the set. Shaq got more than he bargained for when Smith gave him a shove that sent him flying into the tree.
It was a spectacular spill that left Shaq laughing and saying, “This means war, Kenny.” O’Neal should be proud of his attack on that Christmas tree. After all, intentional or not, it puts Kiefer Sutherland’s to shame.
