Shaq’s phone leads to disorder on TNT pregame show

Most people will tell you that NBA on TNT is one of the best and most entertaining sports shows on television.

But things go wrong on the best of shows, too.

Case in point — TNT’s Tuesday night broadcast was derailed by Shaquille O’Neal’s cell phone. It rang while Charles Barkley was making a point (or trying to, anyway) about Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl.

Barkley paused and host Ernie Johnson called out Shaq, who then tossed his phone off the set, knocking his microphone loose in the process.

It was pretty funny and handled pretty well by all involved.
