Shaq proposes to Nicki Minaj during Inside the NBA rap battle

Friday December 19th, 2014

Nicki Minaj was a guest Thursday night on TNT's Inside the NBA and things got rather interesting with the rap star on set. A rap battle broke out involving the entire cast of Grant Hill, Kenny Smith, Shaquille O'Neal, Ernie Johnson and Nicki.

When it was Shaq's turn with the mic, he figured he'd throw a little something Nicki's way with his freestyle so he proposed.

Oh and the best part...she immediately says no.

Nice try there, big man, that was pretty slick. 

Although after the way Ernie dropped the mic, Nicki might want to marry him.
