Shaq Hit By Christmas Tree: Shaquille O'Neal Gets Taken Down By Man In Chris Bosh Mask (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Shaq has completed his first week as an analyst on "Inside The NBA" on TNT and we can't wait for more.

The acclaimed NBA studio show, which features two of the biggest personalities in all of sports in Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal, has met all of our expectations thus far. In fact, it may have surpassed them with this stunt.

Near the conclusion of last night's broadcast, host Ernie Johnson asked O'Neal -- who was dressed like a wizard for some reason -- if he would like to take the final shot of 2011 on the in-studio basket. O'Neal agreed. As he set himself to shoot, though, a large Christmas tree came crashing down on top of him, sending the giant to the ground. At first, this appeared to be a set malfunction, but a camera panned over to reveal that a man in a Chris Bosh mask pushed the tree onto O'Neal.

Shaq has been critical of Bosh in recent years, calling him "The RuPaul of big men" in 2009. Over the summer, he referred to the Heat as the Big 2, purposely omitting Bosh as a star player on the team.

As they say, revenge is a dish best served cold.. and with tinsel.
