When it comes to Tuesday night’s NBA on TNT, you can always expect riveting NBA discussions and shenanigans on set from Adam Lefkoe, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal and seven-time WNBA All-Star Candace Parker.
During the pregame show before the Heat Thunder game, the trio introduced their antics to the fourth member on set, former three-time NBA sixth man of the year Jamal Crawford, who made his debut on the popular NBA show Tuesday night.
But Crawford had no idea what was about to happen to him. After O’Neal challenged Crawford to look him in the eye, Crawford initially refused before changing his mind and complying with O’Neal’s request.
Within a split second of looking at the Hall of Famers, Crawford was clueless until popcorn started raining from the ceiling over his portion of the desk.

Shocked by what happened, Crawford got up from his chair to brush the loose popcorn kernels from his suit. He was officially welcomed onto the show, at least by Parker and O’Neal.
Next time, Crawford will be prepared. “I got you,” he said.
Crawford replaced Dwyane Wade on the show ahead of the 2022-23 season. The 42-year-old began broadcasting for games on NBA League Pass on November 21 alongside former NBA player Quentin Richardson.
He also made a few appearances on the NBA on TNT desk last season.
