VIDEO: Dwyane Wade trolls sleeping Shaquille O’Neal over hilarious ‘roar’
Shaquille O’Neal is a legend of the sport. As it turns out, he’s a legendary sleeper as well. Just ask fellow NBA great Dwyane Wade, who himself recently caught Shaq snoozing on set.
Wade obviously had to catch the moment on film, and it has unsurprisingly resulted in hilarity. Here’s the clip of Shaq roaring his way to dreamland with some of his co-workers having a bit of a laugh at his expense (h/t ESPN on Twitter):

You could clearly hear Shaq’s snore through what looked like a sleeping device. We haven’t read anywhere that Shaquille O’Neal is working to be an astronaut with NASA, so even though it does look a bit like one, we can confirm that that’s not a spacesuit the NBA icon has on.
Apparently, the former NBA center has been dealing with Sleep Apnea for several years now, and this is probably some sort of device he’s been using of late. It hasn’t seemed to work too well for him, though, and this clip serves as a testament to this fact. For those in need of context, Sleep Apnea is a sleeping disorder that often manifests itself in snoring.
For his part, this was a clear win for Dwyane Wade in terms of catching Shaquille O’Neal in his most vulnerable state. The Los Angeles Lakers great has been known to be a bit of a prankster himself, so he’s likely going to try and get back D-Wade for this one. This could easily turn out to be an epic one-up battle between two NBA all-time greats.
