[Watch] Shaquille O'Neal Works on 'Inside the NBA' Without Pants

The future Hall of Famer can blame Dwight Howard for this.

Published April 1, 2016

You win some, you lose some.

But when Shaquille O'Neal lost a bet Thursday night, he lost his pants on live TV in the process.

On TNT's Inside the NBA, the four-time league champion had bet that Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard would at least score 18 points and grab seven rebounds against the Chicago Bulls or he'd do a live segment without any pants on.

Although Howard wound up pulling his weight on the boards, hauling down 13 of them, he only mustered seven points in the Rockets' loss, causing Shaq to lose the bet and walk out onto the set without any pants to the hilarity of his co-workers for the evening, Isiah Thomas and Lisa Leslie.

Even if that means walking onto the set of TNT's Inside the NBA without pants. That's exactly what the future Hall of Famer did Thursday night to the hilarity of his co-analysts for the evening, Isiah Thomas and Lisa Leslie.

The timing was perfect, as midnight rolled right into April Fool's Day.

But that wasn't the first time Shaq pulled the no-pants prank on his crew, as we tracked down footage of him doing the same earlier this season.

Anything for a laugh.

You got it from us, big fella.
