Shaquille O’Neal Unknowingly Drank Lotion on Live TV as Long-Time Friend Pulled Epic Prank on the Lakers Legend
Led by lead studio host Ernie Johnson, along with Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny “The Jet” Smith, and Charles Barkley serving as analysts, Inside The NBA is now over thirty years old.
It started in the 1989-90 season. In the following season, Ernie Johnson took over as the show’s full-time host, a role he retains to this day.
The show is famous for its banter between the analysts and its humor. Shaq joined the show in 2011 after he retired.
In a resurfaced video, we can see one such prank. Kenny pranked Shaq by making him drink a shake that had various ingredients in it.
When Shaq tasted it, he liked it. He said, “It is good … Well, this is nice. What is it?… It tastes cranberry… I taste cranberry and pineapple.”
Then, after some time, Kenny finally revealed his secret recipe. Since Shaq always made fun of Kenny’s healthy eating habits,
Kenny made Shaq a shake that had a wide variety of “healthy ingredients”. Some of them were spinach, Meta Mucil, Sugar, ranch dressing, coffee, and Avina lotion.
It was a hilarious prank that gave the audience watching on TV a great belly laugh. These four have a great chemistry between them which makes the show one of the best of them all.
Shaq dominated the league right from his first season. Orlando Magic selected him as the first overall pick in the 1992 NBA Draft.
