Looks like Shaquille O’Neal has gone from winning NBA scoring titles to winning snoring titles in between NBA games.
Watch as the retired basketball legend is caught grabbing some serious Z’s after his “NBA on TNT” co-hosts caught him sleeping—quite loudly—while on the job. The original Instagram story of the Shaq-nap has since disappeared; however, the footage is currently going viral on Twitter.
Lucky for us.
The brief clip below was posted by O’Neal’s colleague Dwyane Wade, and depicts the 48-year-old hall-of-famer slumbering in his office while fellow analysts Wade and Candace Parker look on in amusement. Encasing Shaq’s head is a bizarre bubble-like apparatus—which some commenters have claimed is a CPAP machine to reduce the ex-All-Star’s sleep apnea symptoms.
“What the hell is going on here,” an aghast Wade, 39, can be heard saying. “We supposed to be working.”
If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, the 7-foot-1 Lakers legend begins snoring ferociously, causing the bystanders to collapse into a fit of giggles.
“Listen closely what kind of roar is this,” reads the on-screen caption.
The clip ends without them waking him.
See Shaq, Sleeping Here
