Stephen Curry became the first player to unanimously win the NBA MVP award this season, causing some to debate whether he deserved to be the first player to win the award unanimously.
Those pointed to Shaquille O'Neal's 2000 MVP and LeBron James as players who should have become the first players to accomplish that feat, and after Curry's Warriors lost to the Cavs in the NBA Finals, Shaq took to Twitter to stake his claim.
One problem - he claimed to be the real "unaminous" MVP:

Shaq averaged 29.7 points, 13.6 rebounds and 3.0 blocks per game for the Lakers in the 1999-2000 season, which is widely viewed as one of the most dominant performances of all time. He also led Los Angeles to a NBA title and won the NBA Finals MVP that season - but he might want to check the spelling on his T-shirts from now on.
Curry averaged 30.1 points and 6.7 assists per game this season while setting the NBA record for most three-pointers made in a season (402 - held previous record of 286), leading the league in steals (2.1 per game) and guiding Golden State to the best regular-season record in league history (73-9).Back to the NBA Newsfeed
