Shaq Eats It On 'Inside the NBA,' Immediately Becomes An Internet Meme

The bigger they are, the harder they fall, and when you're as big as Shaq, you can fall pretty hard.

The 7'1", 325-pound NBA legend took a tumble on the set of the "Inside the NBA" halftime report on TNT during Wednesday night's Rockets-Clippers playoff game. He appeared to get tangled up in a cable and went down so hard he literally fell out of his shoe.

Being Shaq -- in other words, being AWESOME -- he immediately hopped on 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."

But then he took it to Shaq-tastic new levels, offering to pay $500 for whoever turned his fall into the best #Shaqtinafall meme:

The hashtag, #Shaqtinafall, is a play on his "Shaqtin' a Fool" segment on "Inside the NBA," which highlights crazy moments on and off the court.

Already, #Shaqtinafall has given us some instant classics:

There have even been some video entries:

So far, however, the big man has an early favorite:

Shaq, who describes himself on Twitter as "VERY QUOTATIOUS, I PERFORM RANDOM ACTS OF SHAQNESS," is still accepting entries under the #Shaqtinafall hashtag as of late Wednesday night -- so break out the Photoshop and get to work.
