Watch Shaq Get Pranked With a Smoothie Containing Lotion and Ranch

The uproarious hijinks that go on during any episode of Inside The NBA are a part of the special recipe that’s made the Hall of Fame show so legendary and beloved. A main culprit in said hijinks is Shaquille O’Neal, usually on the receiving end of a prank or mishap.

The Big Fella played the hilarious victim again, after co-host Kenny Smith became fed up of Shaq making fun of his healthy eating habits and chose to exact revenge. How? By way of a nasty smoothie he concocted, made up of random ingredients like Metamucil fiber supplement, Aveeno lotion and ranch dressing.

The segment starts with Shaq taking a cautious sip of said smoothie, followed by showing surprising approval for how it tasted. “This is nice,” he admitted. “I taste cranberry and pineapple.”

Kenny then went straight for the big reveal, unveiling the list of ingredients that went into it in a separate video clip recorded earlier in the day, before blending it all together, ready to ruin The Big Diesel’s day.

The thoroughly unamused look on Shaq’s face afterwards, his gagging reactions and Kenny ducking behind Charles Barkley made for another side-splitting moment by the Inside The NBA crew.

Coco5 is an All-Natural, Coconut Water-Based Sports Drink Backed By NBA Stars

When you have a sports drink that has NBA superstar Devin Booker as the majority owner and ambassador, and other current and past basketball stars like D’Angelo Russell, Derrick Rose, and Charles Barkley as partners, there should some confidence in how good it is and how well it hydrates.

Introducing Coco5, an all-natural, coconut water-based sports drink that touts itself as “the perfect drink for health and hydration, no matter what your activity level.”

Coco5 was created by professional sports medicine experts and nutritionists from the Chicago area and became a go-to for players as they found that it allowed them to “play harder and longer while suffering fewer dehydration-related injuries and less muscle cramping.”

The revolutionary and great tasting (trust, I sampled all the flavors) sports drink comes in six all-natural flavors: Orange, Pineapple, Cherry, Coconut, Limón and Passion Fruit. Coco5 also has no dyes, caffeine, or anything unpronounceable, with less than half the sugar of popular hydration and sports drinks.

Coco5 is now available throughout the US at select retailers like Costco, Whole Foods and Amazon.

Michelob Ultra and NBA Jam Debut Nostalgic Limited-Edition Cans Ahead of NBA All-Star Weekend

Before “Kobe!” was the rally cry of shooting your shot, “Boomshakalaka!” or “He’s on fire!” was often heard on many a court, thanks to the iconic NBA Jam video game franchise from the 90’s.

As the official beer partner of the NBA, Michelob Ultra is bringing back those nostalgic feels to basketball fans everywhere during NBA All-Star 2022 this weekend, in celebration of the league’s 75th anniversary.

Through a partnership with the EA Sports franchise and some of the ’90s most legendary players and personalities, Michelob Ultra is encouraging fans to “Enjoy it Like It’s 1993” by bringing the game to life both virtually and on-the-ground in Cleveland.

To transport fans back to the 90s, the beer brand is releasing NBA Jam-inspired, limited-edition cans featuring iconic catch phrases and images from the game in select bars around Cleveland, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse and Boom Shaka Laka’s barcade (a retro ’90s barcade pop-up) during NBA All-Star 2022.

By tweeting a selfie to @MichelobULTRA using #ULTRAJAM, fan photos will be transformed into their own individual 16-bit avatar inspired by the game.

You can head to EnjoyItLikeIts1993.com to score merch from the NBA Jam ‘Time Capsule Collection’ and ultra-limited premium items that will be dropping throughout NBA All-Star 2022, including limited custom NBA JAM x ULTRA arcade consoles.

Michelob Ultra has also partnered with original NBA Jam characters and legends Clyde Drexler, Dikembe Mutombo, Dominique Wilkins and James Worthy as well as NBA Jam in-game announcer Tim Kitzrow to remind us of the joy the game brings.

“There is something special about ‘NBA JAM’ and the power it had to bring real joy to so many people over the years,” said three-time NBA champion and seven-time All-Star James Worthy. “I’m excited that Michelob Ultra is giving me the opportunity to take a trip down memory lane with fellow legendary players and fans.”

If you’re in Cleveland this weekend, you can experience the 90s IRL via Boom Shaka Lakas. The experience will include performances by Fat Joe and DJ Jazzy Jeff as well as meet & greets with the NBA legends mentioned above.
