Shaquille O'Neal turns epic fall into $500 meme contest

CLUMSY SHAQ: NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal

YOU KNOW what they say about men with big feet - they have real big shoes!

NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal took a tumble after his large US size 22 shoes got caught in a monitor while on a television set yesterday (May 6).

The 43-year-old 7ft 1in basketball legend was rushing from his seat on a raised platform on the Inside the NBA set for the half-time report during Wednesday night's Rockets-Clippers playoff game, when he got tangled up and tumbled hard to the ground landing on his back.

He went down so hard he literally fell out of his shoe.

But being, Shaq, the former sportsman immediately took to Twitter to make fun of himself.

"Dam I'm clumsy," he tweeted with a video of the plunge, along with "I almost broke my dam leg lol."

He then offered to pay $500 (£330) for whoever "makes the best meme of me bustin my a**" using the #Shaqtinafall hashtag.
