Shaquille O’Neal Tries (And Fails) To Ride Mechanical Bull On ‘Inside The NBA’

Shaquille O’Neal’s extra-large frame made him a star in his NBA days, but post-retirement, it’s provided us with some comedic gold.

On Thursday’s edition of TNT’s “Inside the NBA,” analyst Matt Winer talked about New York Knicks head coach and former Los Angeles Laker Derek Fisher’s 0.4-second game-winning shot against the San Antonio Spurs in the 2004 NBA playoffs. Winer challenged the rest of the crew to do a number of tasks in less than 0.4 seconds, but the big finale was to see if they could stay on a mechanical bull for longer than that.

And Shaq stepped up.

The 7-foot-1 former center might have been bigger than the bull, but that didn’t stop him from giving his all and failing miserably.

Better luck next time.

There are more of O’Neal’s antics where that came from, so you can check out the whole video at NBA.com
