| Filed under: Silly!ZportzBasketballShaqFunnyGIFsNBA

The bigger they are, the harder they fall!

We've heard of the "Hack-a-Shaq" before, but this is RIDICULOUS!

Last night during the NBA halftime show, Shaquille O'Neal and Kenny Smith were enjoying some playful banter as they analyzed the current game!

However, things turned surprisingly violent when the two co-hosts got out of their chairs and started running, and before you could say "KAZAAM," Shaq was tumbling head first into a Christmas tree bigger than he is!

Ouch!

Jason Collins is retiring from the NBA after becoming the first openly gay professional athlete in North America's four major team sports to play in a professional league - which happened with the Brooklyn Nets last season - and he leaves behind an amazing legacy.

The 35-year-old played the center position, and announced his retirement from basketball with a letter to Sports Illustrated.

And it's pretty amazing!

NBA star Dwight Howard is under a criminal investigation for child abuse!

The Cobb County police in Georgia are investigating allegations that Howard beat his 6-year-old son Braylon with a belt buckle.

Though Dwight's is more confusing.

Sorry, LeBron! JP Gibson is now the hottest name in the NBA!

Does the "no crying in baseball" rule also apply to basketball, because this story is giving us ALL the feels!

5-year-old JP Gibson didn't let his battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia keep him from becoming one of the biggest stars in the NBA last night when he made his debut for the Utah Jazz!
