Shaquille O’Neal’s Christmas weekend got off to a rough start.
The NBA legend made a living posterizing defenders throughout his 19-year, Hall-of-Fame career. But he got a taste of his own medicine Thursday night during TNT’s NBA coverage, as one of the studio’s Christmas trees randomly collapsed on the 7-foot-1 behemoth.

Personally, we wonder if there was some foul play here, as it’s tough to believe a tree coincidentally would collapse on Shaq at the precise moment he was underneath it.
In any event, The Big Diesel collected himself and gave some bizarre gifts to his co-workers.
Now, this isn’t the only interesting tree-related news involving Shaq this year. In November, O’Neal revealed his “Broken Rim Tree,” an awesome piece of yard-art comprised of all the rims from all the backboards he shattered during his career.
