Add Shaquille O’Neal to the list of NBA pros with a gripe against Steph Curry being the first unanimous MVP.
In 2000, O’Neal was one vote away from being the league’s first unanimous MVP. He led the Los Angeles Lakers to a championship that year, whereas Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors failed to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Following the Warriors lost on Sunday night, O’Neal tweeted a picture of a shirt declaring himself the ‘real unanimous MVP’. The problem was that O’Neal’s shirt said he was the ‘real unaminous MVP’.

Former NBA player Grant Hill quickly called out O’Neal on his shirt, seeing the shirt as a joke.
