Shaq On MVP’s: ‘I Should Have Won The Two That Steve Nash Got Over Me’


Shaquille O’Neal’s legendary legacy was being celebrated this week as his statue was unveiled at the Staples Center. When asked about MVP awards, Shaq feels that it’s a crime that he only has one. The Big Diesel is still upset about Steve Nash winning the 2004-05 MVP award over him, and by the sounds of it, it seems like O’Neal felt he should’ve won it in 2005-06. O’Neal also says that LeBron James deserves more than four MVP’s and that Kobe Bryant should’ve had three. Via SI.com:

“LeBron [James] and myself are similar,” O’Neal told SI.com earlier this month in Atlanta. “We could be MVP every year. But [the voters] don’t give it every year and he’s already got four. [I should have won] three, easily. Kobe should have won three, too. [I should have won] the two that Steve Nash got over me. It pisses me off. [Nash] knows.”
