One could make the case that Shaquille O'Neal should have won the NBA MVP award more than once over the course of his Hall of Fame career.
In fact, it's incredible that the 1999-2000 season was the only time he was voted league MVP.
The Diesel himself called Steve Nash's MVP win over him in 2004-05 a sympathy MVP and he had a point, considering he averaged 22.9 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game for the Miami Heat that year in comparison to Nash's 15.5 points and 11.5 assists per game for the Phoenix Suns that season.
Nearly three days after the 2016 NBA Finals ended, Shaq has something else to say about the award, following LeBron James's lead and taking shots at Stephen Curry's MVP win.
The hoops legend took to his Twitter account early Wednesday morning, blasting Curry's award, which was the first-ever unanimous MVP in league history.
Just take a look at Shaq's shirt and the statement he's making.
We hear you, big fella, and if there's anybody who can make the case that he should have been a unanimous MVP before Curry, it's you. But there's one problem — "unanimous" is spelled wrong on your T-shirt.
The Diesel is definitely a comedian and he is laughing in the photo, so we'd like to give him the benefit of the doubt here.
But if this is indeed a mistake, we just hope that these T-shirts haven't been mass produced yet.
