Shaquille O’Neal is truly one of a kind. Not only was he an incredible basketball player during his playing days, but he has become an excellent host.

The NBA legend had an interesting moment on TV Tuesday night, to say the least. While on air with “NBA on TNT,” Shaquille O’Neal decided that he needed to go mining for nose gold. This was all while the cameras were rolling.

His co-hosts freaked out about the booger picking, and who can blame them for doing so? Shaquille O’Neal was sitting on the right side of the panel in his usual seat. Adam Lefkoe was beside him. Candace Parker and Dwayne Wade were also on the panel.

The four hosts were finishing up coverage of the Los Angeles Clippers and Toronto Raptors game. His co-hosts were trying to tell the legendary NBA center to wipe his nose. However, he had a hard time understanding what they were trying to tell him. He began to wipe his face, but nothing was going to fix the problem.

So, Shaquille O’Neal pulled out his phone to examine what they were telling him to fix on his face. Finally, His co-hosts had to tell him what was going on with his face.

With his phone in hand, he clearly opened his camera. He put one finger into his nose and pulled out an enormous booger.

As with all things that Shaquille O’Neal is a part of, the booger was monstrous.

The moment he got the booger out of his nose was hilarious. Almost immediately, fans of “NBA on TNT” began tweeting about the incident.

His co-hosts were loving the moment as well. They all had something to say about his live boulder rolling incident.

Adam Lefkoe said, “That was the biggest booger I have ever seen in my entire life.”

But, Dwayne Wade took it a step farther to make fun of his former teammate. He pulled out a gigantic roll of paper towels and held it up to Shaquille O’Neal. He told the sportscaster that there was no way a regular-sized Kleenex could have handled that job.

Candace Parker couldn’t stop laughing at the entire incident. After the NBA legend gathered himself, he managed to give a response to his colleagues.

“I didn’t even know it was there,” Shaquille O’Neal said. “Y’all got me!”
