BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics’ opening in a initial half of Game 5 vs. Cleveland was not a ugliest thing in a building on Thursday night. Not by a prolonged shot.
That respect belonged to one Shaquille O’Neal, a Hall of Fame actor who was during a TD Garden as a partial of TNT’s promote crew.
For whatever reasons, Shaq motionless to arrangement his large toe to a universe during halftime.
It was gross.
Like, really gross.
As a warning, we should substantially not corkscrew down unless we have a clever stomach.
Here goes nothing.

Former teammate Kevin Garnett — who’s seen some things in his day — had to get in on a reaction, too.
Shaq’s son was, understandably, mortified.
Whoever saw my dads toes on TV, I’m contemptible 😭😭😭

Of course, Shaq did play in a NBA during 7-foot-1, 325 pounds. He played in some-more than 1,400 games, that amounted to some-more than 50,000 mins on a court. So there was firm to be some residual damage.
But … nobody approaching to see it on TV on Thursday night. And nobody ever wants to see it again.
