Video: Shaq tumbles out of chair during halftime show on TNT

Apparently, Shaq's tumble wasn't scripted. 

TNT's "Inside the NBA" isn't the most conventional sports studio program, and Wednesday's halftime broadcast during Game 2 of Rockets-Clippers on the network proved no different. 

As Kenny Smith was breaking down the Rockets' defense, Shaquille O'Neal attempted to get out of his chair. "Attempted" is the key word here. 

What ensued was one of the least graceful tumbles you will ever see. 

Despite the crash, Shaq seemed to be in good spirits. 

Earlier this season, a dash between Kenny and Shaq ended with O'Neal crashing into a Christmas tree. 

These guys clearly need to lighten up a bit.
