Shaquille O’Neal knows how to pick ’em.
The Lakers legend unknowingly had a large booger hanging from his nose during Tuesday’s “NBA on TNT,” and his co-hosts, Dwyane Wade, Candace Parker, and Adam Lefkoe, made sure he knew about it.
In true O’Neal fashion, he shamelessly pulled out his camera phone to yank his bat in the cave, which Lefkoe said was “the biggest booger I have ever seen in my entire life.” He later added that half of O’Neal’s brain came out of his head.
“I didn’t even know it was there. Y’all got me!,” O’Neal said, laughing. “You weren’t going to tell me I had a booger on live TV?”
Parker, who couldn’t contain her laugher, said she tried to secretly warn O’Neal about the booger, but he didn’t catch on.
“I didn’t want to tell you on live TV,” she said.
Meanwhile, Wade, at first, thought he was the one with the loose booger. The “NBA on TNT” crew showed a funny clip of him wiping his nose before they put O’Neal on blast.
Wade then suggested O’Neal should change his podcast named from “The Big Podcast with Shaq” to “the bigger booger podcast.”
“I’m not coming on your podcast unless you change the name,” he said.
Wade later pulled out a giant roll of paper towels for O’Neal and joked, “Ain’t no Kleenex going to help that booger.”
