Shaquille O’Neal is obviously known as one of the greatest NBA players of all time, but on Thursday, the 44-year-old former Lakers star showed off his football catching and tackling skills.

Watch: Shaq Tackles Charles Barkley To The Ground ON TNT’s ‘Inside The NBA’

Fresh off Randy Moss claiming he could have been an NBA star, the future NFL Hall of Famer invited TNT’s Inside the NBA crew to play football with him. The legendary receiver threw a pass to Charles Barkley, and O’Neal-alias ‘Shaq’–blindsided Barkley with a huge tackle that sent him tumbling down to the ground.

Shaq was just getting started, however, since he followed that up with a tackle of Kenny Smith.

Moss, Smith, Kevin Garnett, Barkley, Shaq, and Ernie Johnson also attempted to throw a football into the basketball hoop on the set. None of them succeeded on their first attempt.
