In case you missed it, or accidentally dismissed the ground shaking beneath your feet as an earthquake rather than Shaquille O’Neal’s epic stumble during halftime of the Clippers vs. Rockets game, here it is again.

Thankfully, Shaq is in fact, the man, and not only laughed at his gaff, but encouraged the internet to do the same. Of course, as we all know, the online community has never had an issue laughing at someone else’s pain and this incident was no exception. Here were some of the best memes to come out of Shaq’s epic tumble.
I’m a sucker for Happy Gilmore – personal favorite right here.
While we’re on the subject of movies, I like action hero Shaq way better than Kazaam Shaq.
Speaking of which…
This one’s slightly unrealistic. We all know Mayweather doesn’t knock people out as much as he hugs them to death.

It was pretty close to “Rock Bottom” for the big man.
Maaaaaan I did not see this meme of Shaq last night 😂😂😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/XVFsya7p3o— Terrean B❗️ (@HomieSayWHAAAAA) May 7, 2015
Even Lance Stephenson got in on the action. His game might be out of wack, but he’s now a permanent fixture of the meme world.
The end result of his big wipeout
Good job today internet, and good job Shaq. If you can’t laugh at yourself who can you laugh at? Maybe Austin Rivers, but that’s besides the point.
