Shaq was covered in bubble wrap after his big fall

Monday May 11th, 2015

Shaquille O'Neal took a big spill on Thursday night on the NBA on TNT set, leading to a broken television, a million memes and a lot of laughter.

O'Neal was unharmed by the crash and played the whole thing off with his trademark humor, but he was not going to take any chances when he returned to the set for Sunday's games.

The big man showed up completely covered in bubble wrap to make sure he kept any accidental damage to himself and the set to a minimum while filming Inside The NBA.
