NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal revealed he once almost burned his balls and needed milk to cool them down.
The basketball great, 49, opened up on the hilarious testicle incident that happened during a game.
The seven-foot centre won four NBA titles during his illustrious 19-year career with six teams.
But not everything went according to plan on the court, as he revealed to US talkshow host Conan O'Brien.
Shaq recalled his first experience with pain relieving gel 'IcyHot' on Conan's'Need a Friend' podcast.
The former MVP said: "I always used to see IcyHot in the locker room, and one day I kind of had like a thigh bruise, and the guy rubbed it, but he rubbed it too high.
"During the game, my little guys started getting hot – like, really hot. I thought something was wrong.
"It got to the point where I was like: 'Hey man, I think I need a doctor, my little guys are on fire'."
O'Neal ran off court and straight into the showers, but he said the water just spread the gel around his body even more.
And he was given a brilliant piece of advice by a caretaker to use cold milk to solve the problem.

Shaq said: "So now I'm in the shower pouring milk on my boys and the guys coming in, they're looking at me like 'what the hell are you doing?'."
O'Neal retired in 2011 having been a No 1 overall pick in the 1992 NBA Draft.
He won three NBA titles with late great Kobe Bryant at the Los Angeles Lakers before capturing a fourth with Miami Heat.
