The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon - Season 1

Shaquille O'Neal Making Other People Look Small

The basketball legend and "Uncle Drew" costar just can't help his height

These days, retired NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal wears many (oversized) hats: basketball analyst, author, investor. He'll also show up on movie screens this weekend in the comedy "Uncle Drew" playing part of an over-the-hill playground crew trying to win one last basketball tournament. At 7'1", O'Neal towers over the rest of the cast, which happen to include such skyscrapers as Kyrie Irving, Reggie Miller, Chris Webber, and Lisa Leslie. Here, a look back at all the times the big man made the rest of the world look very, very tiny. (Above: Jimmy Fallon tries on Shaq's jacket in 2014.)
