A Brief History Of Shaquille O’Neal’s Glorious Problem With Pants

Shaquille O’Neal isn’t afraid to play the clown. Nor is he afraid to play a genie, but this post isn’t about Kazam, (though maybe it should be.)

A few weeks ago, Kanye West debuted the music video for Life of Pablo track “Fade” following a speech at the MTV VMA’s. But all everyone discussed afterward, and continues to discuss, is Teyana Taylor’s jaw-dropping choreography. It’s absolutely stunning.

So much so apparently, that Shaq decided to take the dance moves for a spin on Instagram yesterday, breaking it down in his skivvies. In other words this is obviously NSFW a.k.a. No Shaq Fun at Work, as the acronym commonly refers to.

This, of course, is not the first time Shaq has shown off his underwear game. In 2015, during an episode of NBA on TNT, Shaq claimed someone stole his pants and decided to start the show whilst not wearing any. Classic Shaq.

His NBA on TNT co-host Kenny Smith couldn’t resist the opportunity to clown Shaq. The Jet followed Shaq around, shuffling about Turner HQ pants-less, so many he really couldn’t find his pants?

The pants-less streak continued several months later. At halftime of a Rockets-Bulls matchup, Shaq promised the Rockets would win and Dwight Howard would lead the way with 19 points and eight boards. Why Shaq believed in Howard beats me, but he announced he’d go pants-less if Howard and the Rockets didn’t win.

Well guess what? They didn’t! Shaq initially refused to drop his trousers, but eventually succumbed to the peer pressure.

And while he didn’t necessarily drop his pants, Shaquille O’Neal wrestled co-host Charles Barkley off-air. The footage comes courtesy of the Atlanta Hawk’s Jarret Jack’s Instagram. He might not have lost the pants there, but it appears quite possible that Shaq ripped his pants during the wrestling match. If I had to guess, I’d say he did.
