Shaquille O’Neal showed he’s a man of his word as he treated himself to some fried frog legs after losing a bet on Thursday night.
The NBA funnyman made a bet with Inside the NBA colleague Ernie Johnson, a 1978 University of Georgia grad who wiped out TCU 65-7 at Monday night’s college football national championship.
Last week, O’Neal was so confident that the Horned Frogs would be victorious that he put his, well, mouth where his mouth was.
He got through before tip-off and devoured the fried treat, which Johnson served up on a platter adorned with a Georgia football helmet on another hilarious night on the program.

“I’m true to my word, Ernie,” O’Neal said. Shaq then asked the camera to zoom in before smiling with frog legs on his teeth and saying, “I just want you guys to know well about those frog legs.
“These are the best frog legs I’ve ever had in mine [life]. These good guys, Ernie. You didn’t think I would do it, did you?’
“No,” Johnson replied curtly.
The Diesel was confident in predicting a Georgia Bulldog loss to the Horned Frogs last week
“If Georgia beats TCU, I’ll eat some frogs. I’m going to eat a horned frog,” he said, expressionless in front of the display case.
“I’d like to see it,” Johnson said. Apparently, the NBA was in lockstep with their host on TNT’s social media team, teasing The Diesel after the Georgia knockdown.
The Cinderella story ended promptly for TCU, though it was a dream final for the Georgia Bulldogs and outgoing quarterback Stetson Bennett, who had six total touchdowns.
