"The Tonight Show" host continued his variety of music and comedy sketches.

Jimmy Fallon maintained his reputation for being likeable by sticking to his signature song and games routine with his latest set of guests on Tuesday night.

When inviting former NBA star and 7'1" giant Shaquille O'Neal onto The Tonight Show, what else would the comedian do other than swap clothes?

Introducing his latest in a long string of outlandish nicknames, O'Neal told the host that he now wants to be called "The Wolf of Ball Street."

The gentle giant -- who has done everything from sports analysis to comedy to rapping to reality TV since he retired in 2011 -- went on to reveal that he now has his own clothing collection.

"I have a signature suit line coming out at Macy's. It is not a big or tall line -- it fits everybody," said O'Neal, prompting Fallon to strip off his jacket and try on his towering guest's. 

"This is fantastic. It ... is exactly what I've been looking for," joked the six-foot Fallon, who was dwarfed by the former Los Angeles Laker. "We can make the curtains out of this. I've been camouflaged!" he said, hiding under his drapes. "Does it come in Jimmy Fallon size too?"

"I have always wanted to dress like you. I want to be sexy like you," mocked O'Neal.

No episode of Fallon's show would be complete without at least one musical number, and on Tuesday it came in the form a lip syncing showdown with Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues star Paul Rudd

The pair of comedians had the "first Tonight Show lip sync battle," without knowing which songs the other had picked.
